    Current Employee - Rework Associate in Greer, SC

    I have been working at BMW Manufacturing Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Very good benefits and pay. Clean high tech work environment.

    Cons

    Very long work hours. Mandated to work "days off". Not much family time. Long term, career employees are not perceived as being valued by management. You're just a "number"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your long term, career employees like they're more valuable than a contract or temp worker who just started two months ago.

    I have been working at BMW Manufacturing Corporation as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The base pay is something that makes a lot of people gravitate toward this job, but the people and the being able to move about (in certain areas) is nice as well.

    Cons

    You are on your feet for most of the day save for breaks, but you are working in a manufacturing field.

    Former Employee - Mechanical Engineering Co-Op in Spartanburg, SC

    I worked at BMW Manufacturing Corporation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I was lucky enough to have a very great manager who allowed me to explore and really dig into some great projects. Opportunity to work with a very cool product.

    Cons

    Some people are very set in their ways here and day to day business seems focused on deflecting blame for problems to other internal departments. The location is not ideal either. Greenville is an OK city but nothing to rave about.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more about working with other departments instead of arguing about who is to blame.

    I have been working at BMW Manufacturing Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The company is very stable. It offers lots of opportunity for horizontal movement to keep things interesting. The vehicle lease program is fantastic. There are plenty of opportunities for travel to Germany and other plant locations, as well as doing long-term assignments abroad.

    Cons

    Can be a bit slow depending on where you work. The Germans don't always treat Americans as peers, but more like labor workers.

    Pros

    BMW gives you many opportunities to learn about different area of the operation. You not only learn about logistics, you learn about production and assembly.

    Cons

    The parking lot is too far from the building

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more round table with the employees to get more feed back on what they need out on the production floor.

    I worked at BMW Manufacturing Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You can have a direct impact on the quality of a high dollar product.
    Good benefits.
    Mostly good fellow employees.

    Cons

    The few bad apples have entirely to much influence and know how to work the system.
    Time spent working 3rd shift is way to long...often 10 years or more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people that actually care about the quality of the job they are doing. If you look it is not hard to find them. Understand that the ones that are just "there" are hurting your quality and production.
