    At Webasto, employees join a global success network

    Manufacturer of sunroofs and auto components enjoys its second straight year on Top Workplaces list. The next time you press a button to open your car's sunroof, you might want to pause and say a little thank you. Chances are, you have someone in your community to thank for helping you enjoy the good weather as you cruise along.

  • Did you know that in Michigan, 1,414,700 people are struggling with hunger – and of them 356,930 are children? Someone you know may be hungry; your co-worker, your child’s classmate, your elderly parents. Charitable deeds are abundant around the holidays and are often forgotten in the summer months, but hunger is not isolated to one day or season. Our Webasto family recognizes the community’s need for food security. Together we collected 304 pounds of food for donation – this effort will provide roughly 720 meals! We are proud to have collaborated with Gleaners. Thank you to all who donated!

Webasto – Why Work With Us?

ONE Webasto - Corporate Program

How we work together...

Webasto's rich culture is one of our most treasured qualities.  WE put our people first - always. The many ways we communicate with and listen to our colleagues is a key driver of our business success! WE  live by our ONE Webasto values globally and here in the Americas region, our daily behavior and interactions are guided by Our Compass, a cultural road map developed by our own colleagues. This the essence of our  colleagues and our warm, welcoming culture. 

Behaviors are guided by Our Compass

Philipp Schramm, the CFO/Vice President of HR & IT is awarded 2017 Game Changer by Workforce Magazine. 

 The Vision component "Our Inspiration" describes our culture. It defines how we work together in the context of globally applicable values and principles for leaders and employees.  

We have established a global network. Therefore, we are always close to our customers, so we can be a strong and reliable partner. Our collaboration is increasingly networked across continents and business units. A shared understanding of how we work and act together is the basis of our success. 

Drawing on existing, regional culture programs, we have developed five global Webasto Values. They form the action framework for how employees conduct themselves with one another and with our customers and business partners. Our shared corporate culture creates a bond across cultural boundaries and provides us with an identity. This enables every employee to feel he or she is part of Webasto.

    ECommerce Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fenton, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview


    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Webasto (Fenton, MI).


    Pleasant group of people. Nothing out of the ordinary. After I quit my previous job and accepted a position at Webasto, they tried to drug test me on my first day. When I refused they fired me. Poor planning made this whole experience a lose/lose for all parties involved and a giant waste of time. My wife was 4 months pregnant and now I was out of the job because these clowns neglected to tell me there was a drug test until my first day.

    This company does not seem like it communicates well as an organization.
