I worked at BMW of San Francisco full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The prestige of working with BMW, comprehensive medical coverage, and the initial warmth of the company are great. If you are a complete novice, you will learn alot about auto maintenance.

Cons

The company would like to say its culture encourages inter-employee cooperation, but the way it conducts business doesn't. In order to preserve its bottom line, everyone is rushed to get the job done. Further, service is made to look incompetent when sales or phone personnel are not on the same page regarding what can and can't be done.

Advice to Management

It would be great to have transparency and communication between all the company's verticals so that promises aren't made to customers that can't be kept. Value the contributions of the little guy-- valets and carwash guys seem to get overlooked. Adopt a company culture where there is wiggle room in the hectic schedule so that "I'm too busy" becomes, "sure, I can help you out with that question."

    I have been working at BMW of San Francisco full-time

    Pros

    The environment and the people in it make working here a great experience. Free parking in the city is also a huge bonus. Affordable Medical, Dental, Vision, 401k, Life Insurance. There's room for growth and advancement as management promotes from within.

    Cons

    Can be a high-paced, stressful environment but that's the automotive industry. You just need to find the right people up for the challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Be as open and transparent as possible with your employees. Have frequent discussions with each employee about their goals/future at the company.
