    I worked at BMW full-time

    Pros

    Great Product and clients to work with.

    Cons

    Due to changes and "Future Retail" they are no longer a premium experience for customers. I was told for 20 years we provided the best shopping experience. BMW and Dealerships have changed to a Toyota / Mazda operation of jerking customers around and clients was now telling me they hate it. I'm told now by every Client Advisor still there they hate it and it is no longer fun. Also pay cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Quit threatening to fire client advisors everyday. Quit having meetings everyday. Return authority back to client advisors and quit requiring multiple mgrs. to review every deal.

    I worked at BMW full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have no good things to say about this company but my friends are only ones who know the truth.

    Cons

    I am a white female in her twenties, an US citizen and I vote. Bmw and Mau have been hiding an identity fraud for over a year. This might be the first a Bmw supervisor and Mau Hr were allowed to but it happen switch my perfect good work record and identity number inside the Bmw plant without my knowledge or signature and replaced it with false number and work record. In this time after the switch they harassed and told awful lies about me. This went on for two months till they built enough lies; than they walked me out the door. In this time period I reported a problem of my number to an offline and Mau Hr was informed of my mistreatment. It was like they laughed in my face and nothing was done or looked into. My Identity is very badly messed up at this time and it can take a few years to set back my rightful identity. Bmw or Mau have never tried to make this right or find out who or where my identity went inside the Bmw plant. All my other bosses and team workers on both shifts knew I was hard working despite an injury I had gotten never missed a day with this. I was respectful, honest, and helped others in and out of work station and worked beyond my required job. I learned very quickly and I always made sure my job was done right. Why this Bmw supervisor and Mau Hr decided to do this I have no idea. I don’t wish this on anybody and with my identity so messed up, and my good work record destroyed, it is hard to obtain a job until my identity is restored. If it happened to a Bmw boss or Mau they would have had someone arrested. Why haven’t they came forward and made this right, they have all kinds of proof Bmw and Mau. One other thing when this switch happened I was hired and fired the same day and I was working my job and didn’t even know this. It didn’t show up till after I was walked out and got last paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to worker because may be tell you the truth about who they are?
