Self absorbed company (certain departments)
Forklift Operator (Current Employee) –  Nazareth, PAMay 20, 2018
The company doesn’t offer many if any actual BMW jobs, But they offer full time temporary employment through a temporary employment agency. Certain departments are treated better than the rest of them certain departments once they make so much they don’t get any more raises because the boss says that they make too much for the area they are working in. I would not suggest anyone to get a job with this company unless it is a very temporary job until you find a new one because you make a mistake and it could cost you your job.
Pros
Close to the area
Cons
Not the best healthcare, very little communication in the department

Great coworkers, poor management.
RPR Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Tucson, AZMay 20, 2018
Managers in sales never satisfied with performance. Service managers are great to work with. When tasks had to be done withing a certain time limit, can always count on coworkers to get tasks completed.

Commission based employment
SERVICE ADVISOR (Former Employee) –  Corpus Christi, TXMay 20, 2018
Commission based employment does not offer a steady paycheck. No guarantees on pay rates. At times , this is a more
Difficult customer base. Limited amount of resources to try and help.

Service Advisor (Former Employee) –  Sterling, VAMay 19, 2018
While dealerships under go multiple changes, this dealership is constantly trying to line their own pockets. They preach employee satisfaction; however, when changes are made and employees are not happy and begin leaving there are other concerns which need to be looked at. All of which are over looked and employees are ignored.

Exiting place to work
Production Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Spartanburg, SCMay 15, 2018
You earn your pay working at BMW. I enjoyed the fast paced atmosphere. I enjoyed the freedom to run my team the way I wanted as long as goals and targets were met. Working with people in different departments was rewarding. Management want and expect change to improve every month. You knew what was expected of you. The direction given was consistent. You have the ability to learn as much as you could as well as opportunities for lateral moves and travel. The Board of Directors plan strategically to ensure the companies success.
Pros
People are open to change
Cons
Long hours sometimes

Data Analyst (Former Employee) –  Greer, SCMay 14, 2018
BMW is a fantastic company to work for but they constantly cycle managers in and out of new positions which leaves their subordinates to be managed by soneone who doesnt understsnd the responsibilities of their subordinates. Plus most managers are constantly interviewing for their next promotion and dont want to make waves. Getting things done that require management approval can be maddening at times. Such a shame that a great company is managed this way.
Pros
Excellent pay and benefits
Cons
Inept msnagement

Competitive Workplace - You Can Make Career at BMW
Section Leader (Current Employee) –  Greer, SCMay 13, 2018
BMW is fast paced and competitive work environment. There are many perks with Associate Health Care Center, Lease Car, and much much more. The various Departments do work together and there is more finger pointing than problem solving. Overall a good company to work.
Pros
Lease Car

Production Associate (Current Employee) –  Greenville, SCMay 5, 2018
Working in the paint shop is fairly easy. You learn many things how to look for dirt and get it out as well. Standing on your feet can be tough but it’s well working the pay.

Unfair place to work
FINANCE MANAGER (Former Employee) –  Alexandria, VAMay 2, 2018
Not a fair place to work because all the deals will be pick and pass to the finance managers and since I was the 4th manager in the department got the most cash deals and did spend more time at work.
