    Pros

    Great staff, always meeting new people, Usually there is something new each day when you go to work, Beautiful dealership to be in

    Cons

    Hours are different than what you would expect, some of the positions are less exciting then the selling aspect, the culture of the dealership is different than other positions

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. Although there wasn't a specific internship protocol I was on, this dealership made me feel like I had a set job every day.

    Too many derivates of the same car makes it hard for the employee to focus

    Pros

    Working as a driver for dealer trades was a different kind of job compared to others. You meet many great individuals from various BMW dealers and carry on a great interaction together. The BMW culture is very unique as the employees all share a passion for cars.

    Cons

    During rush hour times traffic can be really grueling so expect to have a lot of patience.

    Pros

    A great firm that runs itself like clockwork. The opportunities are there if you seek them, but must be consistent with personal performance.

    The management structure is rigid and personal mobility might seem difficult. Training and certifications are a plus

    Pros

    lots of exposure, and lots of new things to learn. Cool cars. Its a big name so that will open some doors in the future.

    Low pay. Hard to get in. and most of the times to move around the company or to start you need to know someone.

    Advice to Management

    focus on the benefits of the workers. They need to feel like the company actually likes them.
