Management leadership skills are lacking. Its more of a dictatorship. You are treated like a number and not a person with a life and family outside of Bosch. The hardest part of the job is the mandatory weekends. Some months we can work of 21 straight days. The most enjoyable part of the job is the pay. Advancement is on a "who you know not what you know' basis.
Senior Quality Engineer (Former Employee) – Novi, MI – March 19, 2016
Overall a good place to work at. The position i had was not for me. Typical day would be looking at excel charts to track quality trends and close customer issue. Analyzing parts as they came in and documenting the results. Learned a lot about supplier quality and how its not meant for me. Hardest part was constantly being blamed for everything and having to be in front of the customer getting berated for a bad quality part that your company produced. Best part was the commute to work 10 minutes.
Daily morning meetings to observe and analyze any defective products found on the line. Numerous weekly meetings to review ongoing issues with various defective products. Weekly meetings to see where various projects were and to determine new actions and dates for completing goals. I learned how the products we produced worked, how manufacturing facilities work, and how quality is critical in the success of companies and their products. Management was helpful with projects and interactions with other employees. Multiple interactions with co-workers throughout the day. The hardest part of the job was finding projects that were necessary and how they could improve upon various processes. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with fellow employees and meeting front line staff members.
While working at Robert Bosch I learned a lot! The management in the department in which I worked was always open to new ideas, allowed you to be creative & provided the elements that you needed to get your job done!
When working with a large manufacturing company there is always the possibility of lay offs
Forklift operator/ general labor (Former Employee) – Marion, AR – September 23, 2015
I enjoyed my time with Robert Bosch until the day my assignment ended. I had let it be known that I had a phobia of heights and that I could become ill while trying to endure working in a higher level of the warehouse. They decided to test that and when I did become ill and I vomitted in my mouth, I let the supervisor know. The supervisor decided that I was not a team player and let the manager know. And the next week, my assignment was ended.
Nice starting off pay
Short breaks, very long to become a full time employee
Executive Assistant to Regional President (Current Employee) – Farmington Hills MI – September 9, 2015
Bosch has excellent, expected standards for professionalism, which raises an employees bar of productivity. The management is approachable and very knowledgeable. Co-workers are willing to help with finding a solution, even if it's not their department.
Internal technical systems are functional and get the job done. Bosch does a good job of recognizing strengths and directing others who need help, where to find it.
The most enjoyable part of my job is when an event needs to be planned; finding the venue, the A/V, budgeting the event, arranging the team-building activities and the catering.
A typical day for me as an exec assistant is meeting plans/calendar logistics, travel plans, email correspondence, meeting changes, fielding phone calls, venue searches for future meeting plans. Meet with co-workers on improving administrative functions, possible productivity improvement.
Good people, benefits, paid vacation
Too Big-Corporate atmosphere; warehouse size office environment

Machine Operator (Former Employee) – N Charleston, SC – May 28, 2015
Its just an all around good place to work. I would love to go back and become a full time employee. They have great hours and its always nice having a place to go eat on campus vs having to leave to get lunch or dinner.
