I enjoyed my time at BMW. I especially enjoyed the BDC managerial position as it allowed me to communicate with customers and most employees of the company. As the call center manager, resolving all issues brought great satisfaction.
Production Supervisor (Current Employee) – Brazil, Santa Catarina Araquari. – January 6, 2019
BMW is for me a very good company and a very important professional school. Over the years I really improuved my lead skiils in supervisor management team. Work in this company make me feel proud. I have a good job environment, good friends and a wonderful team. The benefits are perfect and the challenges too. I would strong appreciate BMW MC USA give me opportunity to continue to work and maintained my skiils as a production Supervisor or any other job according my qualification.
Benefits, secure and clean work enviroment, good work atmosphere.
Distance from city, comunication with supplier about parts quality shoud be improuved.

Lease end specialist (Former Employee) – Hilliard, OH – January 2, 2019
BMW is one of the best companies to work for. Lots of employee benefits and other perks. Lack of lateral promotion. Too many bureaucracy. Medical and other health benefits are great so too is vacation time. competitive environment.
Typically very busy and interactive work day. I have learned to manage my time wisely and efficiently. I have received training and am authorized in the usage of SAP software and expanded my Microsoft Office skills. I feel that some management is too focused on delegation and not enough on learning the actual job functions of the associates they manage, which is necessary in order to help guide the departments to a stronger, more proficient and efficient performance of the processes. The most difficult part of my job is the organizing and motivation of other departments that directly affect the efficiency of my departments operation. However, this same interaction with the other departments could also be considered an enjoyable part of the job, as I enjoy the collaboration with other departments to improve the processes and overall work experience.
Field Operations Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – December 27, 2018
Innovation and products always reminds you about why you got into the industry. Still a male dominated industry, however current management is promoting culture change for the better. Dealers are great to work with.
Service Advisor/Writer (Former Employee) – Honolulu, HI – December 17, 2018
Typical work day is 10-14 hrs per day. Work 4 days and 3 days off Sundays the Service Department is closed. Min 250 service hrs to get paid higher incentives , but expectation given was 400 service hrs per month. Each vehicle average about 2 service hrs need to average about 10-15 cars daily individually to obtain 320-440hrs per month. When you start off don’t expect to be writing up 10-15 cars per day unless your productively answering the phone and setting appointments for yourself. Most beginners average 5-8 cars per day. Once it becomes second nature it’s pretty easy flowing. Estimates for repairs are a must to learn customers don’t like to be under quoted on estimates. Not much room for errors with this job must be accurate with price quotes and information related to clients. Don’t make any promises you can’t deliver. Just make sure you follow the correct procedures and guidelines you’ll be ok.
Good Benefits Medical, Dental, Vision, 401k, Compensation .Discounts on services for parts and labor, Purchased or Lease Vehicles
BMW Genius (Former Employee) – Bellevue, WA – December 17, 2018
Absolutely degrading managers, salesman were successful based on just selling. Only looking for assets and looking for employees to be able to put their heart into their work.(without getting personal. Kind of counterproductive, isn't it?)
Co-workers had a lot of anger issues and stayed quiet when asked a question or got annoyed constantly. No real teamwork, just everyone trying to be the managers favorite by only putting on a smile when customers walked in. Condescending folks with no real respect for others therefore it was difficult for me to respect them if it wasn't reciprocated.
1hr lunches, Gets super quiet with nothing to do
Managers will yell at if you're just standing around, Will make you clean the 500 cars EVERY DAY
Parts Counterman (Former Employee) – TENAFLY, NJ – December 14, 2018
Worked in parts for almost two years. Reported discrimination, harassment regarding gender/ sexuality regarding an A Counterman. They investigated, suspended him for a few days. Two months later they fired me with the excuse of “ slow sales” really was for blowing the whistle on him.... Penske Automotive Group... tolerates harassment and sexual discrimination... beware
Paid time off, salary
Poor management, weak union in the shop, tolerates harassment
