Job Security

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
One thing over the years at BMW was job security and the knowledge my position was valued.Pay was good and training was structured so you learnt a minimum of four roles.

Pros

Job Security

Cons

Distance from home

Poor establishment

The company has a very poor culture. Treatment of staff by management is awful.Also middle management are more interested in looking out for their friends rather than hard working people.Women are especially treated poorly on the shop floor.

Pros

Carpark.. salary

Cons

Awful management

Smash your head against the wall every day

I have worked at a bottom end garage, consider to be one of the worst dealerships in the country. And I currently work at a BMW dealership, considered to be one of the best. There is very little difference. Staff and customers get treated near enough the same.

Long hours, unrealistic expectations and bad management

My time working here was long days, working every Saturday with below minimum wage basic and poor commission along with bad management. Do not recommend or waste your time

Cons

Everything else

Production

I’ve worked for BMW Group for almost 6 years now and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every minute , the continuation of learning is very progressive and puts you in a good stead for the future.

Good all round company

Everything is what you expect at BMW, the workshop is clean, the people are friendly and helpful, management are always useful when having any problems ( which is not very offen ) so yes if I where to moved jobs it’s probably because of the distance from my home to work, if you have a car great if you haven’t, then I would think if it’s worth walking the 4.3 miles, if I was starting out from 18 then I would think twice but a great company to work for…………. Recommend this company to anyone

Great internship program

Overall an incredible place to work, very adaptive and collaborative with great managerial support. I had an amazing year at BMW Group UK and would be happy to work there again after graduation.With lockdowns and applying for a university, year in industry internship the interview process was longer due to the number of candidates and lockdown regulations.

Pros

Flexible working, supportive managers great progression opportunities

Cons

Quantity of projects/responsibilities

Cons

Management do not care an HR will mess around your pay check every month

Never work for this place.

DONT WORK HERE, THEY DONT CARE ABOUT YOU. Unfair treatment I’m the work place, if you don’t know any one “higher” your not good, they allow people to drive without a license, management put themselves before anybody else. They degrade you, be little you, control you.

Everyone is chilled

Working here is good and managers are all good and helpfull. Training is minimal but you lean as you go which would be the same in most of the companies.

Good place to work, great pay

Pay was great, management could be a little power tripping and making your job more difficuilt but overall good place to work, can be many quiet days where you're getting paid for not much work if that is yoyr thing and generally isn't extremelly busy at least in the IT sector
