Fast paced. Pay is not fair starting with MAU.

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Extremely strenuous work environment. Heavy lifting. You won’t be hired on no matter how ambitious and hard you work unless you are a brown nose. They drama doesn’t end. Very high turnover rate. There’s a 3 point system they work off of. Even if you had COVID, Court or was admitted into the hospital if you miss 3 days you’ll be terminated.

Bump this ish!

Great if you like to feel like you were jumped by 20 people for months to a year. Management is awful. Pay isnt worth it honestly. The people on the line are cool though.

Worst for manufacturing engineer as contract

They renew the contract for 1 year only, no chance to become full-time even after working for over 7 years, someone from Germany got full-time in less than 1 year ..how ? you know it.No training for job, Double and triple workload, bad management and no support from them...you will be a number for them...favoritism within group and handover uncomplete work from Germany to US planner, other departments are not easy to work with as planner. high turn over.for short time it's OK for experience only.Pay and culture is not worth to engineering degree at all.still don't know why majority of contract engineers are foreign born immigrants ?

Pros

you will work very hard to learn how to build car and experience politics

Cons

Less pay and no benefit to contractor, no future for contract engineer

Great place to work if your only worry is benefits.

No clear career progression path, Strong corporate politics, competency level of manager doesn't always parallel with given team, lack of diversity at 2% for entire org etc.

Not as good as it seems from the outside

Employees could be treated a lot better. This company makes to much money not to care about the people that are making them the money more. To much stuff to list and I've been in multiple positions there.

Long hours, selfish management

While the pay here is great, the environment is toxic and management is very selfish. It’s not about what you know there, it’s about who you know. 10 hour shifts are exhausting and it takes a toll on your body after a while.

Too much favoritism but the pay and benefits are great.

Great benefits, poor management and very unorganized for such a large company. Favoritism is a huge issue in almost every department and hard work goes unrecognized.

Nothing great to say

No life working here and you are just a number they don’t care about you or your well-being they want you to dedicate your life and get hurt and keep working

Not a fun work place.

At BMW it don't matter how good of a worker you are . It just matter if whoever in charge like you are not. Some good worker get a head. But some bad worker that don't half work get good jobs because of favoritism.

Beware physically challenging, too many cons

I just started working here 2 months ago. The benefits are good. I currently work with MAU (which is what they use to hire people at first then later on you can get hired eventually at BMW). I make 18.50/hour, but supposedly they're raising it to 19.50 soon. You get all the benefit goodies: dental, medical, eye. But when with MAU you get the typical benefits you probably pay now with regular employers. Versus BMW when hired on it's a huge difference. Instead of like a $250 copay for a family you'll maybe be paying $75 instead. You also get small discounts at some places, but it's usually only 10%.Schedule of days can be like this.You work 4 days in a row one week.The next week you work split days like Monday Tuesday then off Wed Thursday then back on Fri Saturday.The next week after that you work 4 days in a row but then you have your 5 day weekend (Friday to Tuesday)Then it starts all over again.Anyway, over to the cons. It's physically demanding. I'm extremely tired by the time I come home. We work 10 hours a day, with 40 min lunch, 2 10 minute breaks. As a line assembly my schedule is from 7am to 5:40pm. (Mandatory overtime can range from 30 mins to 2 hours, depending on company needs) But it's terrible cause the plant is so big it takes about 2-5 mins to get anywhere from your line to the bathroom. Most of the time you have to speed walk or run to do what you need to do before you start working. It takes me 10 mins walking fast to get to the cafeteria and by the time I come back with food I maybe only have 10 mins to eat. The line starts exactly when breaks are - 

Pros

Medical, dental, eye, 5 day weekends, pay decent

Cons

Super short break, speed walking required to make it on time, management doesn't listen, you're on your own you need to fend for yourself

Not worth your time honestly

Ok company if you like to get stuff taken from you. Pay Is good but management kind of sucks because they only think of themselves and not the workers

Cool place

Everybody helps each other grow and learn. Whatever your interested in management will help you get there and reward you with doing more then expected.

Stable Pay. Overtime if wanted. No Room For Growth if you’re not buddy buddy with management.

Stable Pay. Overtime if wanted. No Room For Growth if you’re not buddy buddy with management. They know who they want for new positions and advancements. If you’re not one of their buddies it’s not happening.

Good pay

Good pay for the work, just no time for family or the ability to take time off to do things with them, you are literally just a number to them, if you get injured or start developing an injury they drag their feet and do everything possible to avoid sending you to a real doctor

You are just a number.

Unless you know the right person, you are repeatedly reminded you can be replaced anytime. Feels more like prison than work.Mid level management thinks that the more they keep their subordinates downtrodden, they safer their job is.

Pros

Great health benefits

Cons

Everything else

Horrible management

Treat you like trash and expect you to clean up after other people. The company doesn’t care about you and will fire you if you get sick or something important happens

Cultural Shifts

You job satisfaction relies on your team and manager. Some will support very well, and drive you to succeed. Others are not well experienced for management.

Decent money if you don't value time at home.

Management is beyond awful, conditions are worsening daily, overworking is common. The only bright side to this place really, is that they shutdown twice a year for 2 weeks, but most of the time you get paid for 30% of the break.

Pros

2 weeks off in December and July.

Cons

No sick days, See the plant more than you will probably see your family, No free food, Overpriced food, Strenuous work, Long hours, Bad management, Injury-prone

Trying both too much in some areas, and too little in some

The plant is the most successful one in the BMW Group, and make amazing quality BMW X-series. The plant has so many "startup-like" qualities, but in the end it runs like a manufacturing facility that's been stuck in it's way for 25 years. Pay is fine depending on your area of work, and you do get a leased BMW for a heavy discount. If you don't care about cars and don't take advantage of the lease program, you would probably feel underpaid. Work from home is at the discretion of each manager real direction from upper management at the plant on alot of topics.

Pros

Lease program, company outlook, benefits, yearly bonuses, alot of opportunities to learn and network

Cons

No Paternity Leave/bottom of industry maternity leave, Pay, Bureaucratic processes, slow moving changes, inconsistencies across department in terms of management
