Lead Project Engineer (Former Employee) – Framingham, MA – November 4, 2018
if you are friends with someone or owe them allegiance, you are taken care of. if you are an independent thinker, you are left out of the loop. strange culture with some good things and some weird, disfunctional behavior.
Sales Specialist/Customer Service (Current Employee) – Milpitas, CA – October 10, 2018
A typical day at work consists of keeping the store well organized and welcoming customers to the store. Working here at Bose, I learned a lot of responsibility, time management, customer service, and communication skill. The management at Bose is very respectable and knowledgeable, but they tend to be pressuring. The managers are sometimes bad role models. They can tell you what to do, but they wouldn't do it themselves. Associates strictly have to wear correct uniforms, but managers tend to wear the uniforms inconsistently. The workplace can be fast-paced especially when it comes to busy days like the holidays. The hardest part of the job is to work with customers that aren't cooperating when you are just trying to help. The most enjoyable part of the job is selling products that you are passionate about and sharing that passion with other customers.
Paid-Time Off, Flexibile
Poor Managment and Short Breaks, Stay on your feet the whole day
Sales Specialist (Former Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – October 8, 2018
Sale specialist basically sales associate was a fun and easy job. It helped when you work with great product too. I worked at a kiosk in the airport. The location was a little difficult to work at since we were asked more non Bose related questions. I learned how to utilize my sales skills to the Bose standards with the help of management. All corporate management I had met were all very nice and very encouraging.
Tech (Current Employee) – Indiana – September 29, 2018
I like the work I do, the pay and vac.time is good. But management don't have a clue. They keep lazy people that miss work, are late a lot. And the manager of repair don't know how to treat people. It's their way or no way even though she don't have a clue of what it takes to repair. Too much overtime that is not necessary. They have a system called Bose Ethics that IS NOT FOLLOWED! It's hard to get full time but also hard to get fired..it is the worse company I have ever worked for as far as how the good employees are treated and the lazy ones get away with everything..staying on the internet, foul mouths, walking around talking for 20 min. There is no consequences for bad behavior!! Or doing things you are not supposed to do!
Great family-team atmosphere where our awesome supervisors/managers always had the time to help us and led by servanthood/leadership role module examp

Sales Specialist (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – August 14, 2018
A typical day includes greeting customers and making them feel at home in our store. Assessing their needs and demonstrating the best solutions for them. Explaining our return/exchange and warranty policy. Presenting the opportunity to extend the manufacturers warranty period or to add "Accident Protection." Cashiering, stocking shelves and generally maintaining the Sales Floor to project a professional image.
Fun place to work, excellent employee discount program.
Retail, limited opportunities for upward mobility. Wages not commensurate with abilities.
Call Center Operations Manager (Former Employee) – Framingham, MA – August 9, 2018
Bose was an atmosphere where most decisions were made with both the employee and the business in mind. This drove better productivity and results. Bose provided me the opportunity to enhance my call center technical skills to compliment my call center operational skill.
Employee focused. Commitment to employee engagement
Product Support Specialist II (Former Employee) – Framingham, MA – August 7, 2018
A typical work day is about 7 hours of responding to customer questions and concerns via email or telephone. Depending on the day there may be product demonstrations, hands on time with products for increased awareness and or troubleshooting, and usually a quick chat with your supervisor about how the day is progressing.
Employee focused, excellent compensation as well as perks and incentives
Going to work here was a treat. I enjoyed going to work every day. My co-workers communicated I had temporary roles, such as acting team leader. Continous improvement, with managers that would listen to you with creative criticism. Workplace culture was wonderful, you could talk to anyone, and we all knew our jobs and if we needed help, they would help or find someone who could.
Technical Writer/Editor IV (Current Employee) – Framingham, MA – July 25, 2018
My position at Bose grew over the years into my ideal job. I came in as the only Technical Writer in the Design Center and built the job into what it was, including organizing the work, creating templates for documentation consistency, creating a style guide, and was responsible for my own schedule, which revolved around the Designers' deliverables.
There was a lot of opportunity for me to work from home and go in just for meetings.
I enjoyed the documentation part best -- working with the Designers to show how to build the new products and record manufacturing defects and how to correct them, to working with the Usability Group Writers to edit the user documentation, user quides, online help, safety sheets, and so forth.
Company ethics and values, technical competence, innovation
