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

    Pros

    The people I worked with were very supportive of me given that I was an intern - they understood what I wanted to do in my future and gave me tasks related to it; pay is competitive for an intern

    Cons

    Given that I was an intern, no cons; environment is noisy, but some people prefer it

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for supporting interns

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at BMW Manufacturing.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter for this position. I did a quick initial phone interview with the recruiter and then 2 weeks later I went for an in person interview. This interview lasted about 30 minutes as I talked with 2 managers and one of their assistants who was in the same position I would be filling. Overall, the interview went great. Everything was very laid back and about a stress free as an interview could be. A couple days later I got a call from my recruiter and was told that they wanted to do a second interview. This second meeting was more of a job shadowing so that I could get a feel for what I would be doing and so that I got a chance to meet some other people and talk to others that would be in my department. Again, I felt that everything went smoothly just as the first interview had. The only downside aside from not being offered the position was the lack of communication. I was told I could look to hear something in about a week after my 2nd meeting, but it ended being just over a month.
