Good entry level pay, no opportunity to grow.

TOS/Forklift Driver (Current Employee) Greer, SC

ProsGood pay. Good benefits. Attendance issues are the only real way to get fired. They do a good job of catering the basic needs.

ConsThey can call a mandatory 1 hour of overtime everyday, and mandatory production days whenever they feel like it. If you're schedule isn't very flexible, there will not be much wiggle room. The shift hours are long, making going to school while working there almost impossible. Depending on which staffing agency you come in under, your chances of being hired on to BMW Staff are greatly affected. Those coming in on the logistics side, Tier One Solutions, have no opportunity to be hired on full-time. The various staffing agencies that partner with BMW also will not compete with one another for employees. That means, if you want to make a lateral move from one agency to another, you must first resign from your current position before the other agency will even acknowledge you for hire. For most people who aren't lucky enough to come in under the MAU title (best chance of getting hired on directly) there are only two options: Quit, or get fired.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe management is alright...but they will not step up to bat for their hourly employes. Everyone generally agrees that how BMW recruits and hires full-time staff is very biased, nepotistic and even a bit racist. But nobody is willing to take a stand.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Low Pay but Nice Co-Workers and Environment

    I have been working at BMW


    Pros: Work Life balance, International colleagues, Fun product, reasonable Employee Car… Cons: Low pay for branches outside Hilliard, Ohio headquarters. Geo pay is given to employees, but not enough to compensate for standard… Advice to Senior Management: Increase base pay to allow NJ colleagues to purchase residences… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More

    Overall a good place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Woodcliff Lake, NJ

    I worked at BMW


    Pros: Smart, dedicated, passionate, nice and fun employees. Work is interesting and challenging. Nice facilities, location and offices. … Cons: Difficult to maintain a good work-life balance with family and personal interests. Workload is often excessive, all consuming. Most "emergencies"… Advice to Senior Management: Address the workload crisis. The company was already very lean before US headcount was reduced so the existing employees were required to take up… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
