good company to work for
worked for BMW for nearly 20 years, first as a welder and then as a line operator. It is a fast paced work environment, and can be physically demanding but overall good opportunities and benefits.

I liked working for BMW
Rather fast paced job but it was really well organised no ifs and buts you had your list of duties and that's it. You got your induction, training, everything was explained and if you found some way to do your job better you could talk about it with your management. Not easy job by any means but really well organized. Only downside is that this line of work might not be for everyone.

Make It Temporary
Job was actually quite good for a couple months as management tries to make you stay. Getting BMW’s home almost every weekend etc. This changes quite dramtically after a few months and you become branded a non team player and the back stabbing crom the ancient staff beguns. Use it as a stop gap to do something else after 3 months but never let on to that.
Pros
Guaranteed bonus of £250 for 3 months plus any commission or bonus you make on top.
Cons
No work/life balance, nothing will ever improve

Amazing staff. Poor working conditions
Amazing and dedicated collegues who are not given credit or cared for. Working enviroments are very poor. Constant technical issues not allowing collegues to provide the service that management keep talking about. PC's and chairs broken, no work life balance as expected to work 40hrs a week including majority of weekends. Poor wages for the work expected.
HR unhelpful when issues were raised. Would not recommend to anyone.

High pressure role with continuous improvement expected
I spent 30 years within BMW Company. Most of my roles were customer focused and I worked hard to ensure that my customers quickly considered me part of their organisation.

Logistics is my fundamental background with responsibilities covering:


Inventory Control

Audit and Budget control

Team Management

Engineering Control

Functional KPI’s

Logistics System Developments

Good at work life balance and interesting work
They are probably the most advanced company I have contracted with in terms of remote working. I could dial in and work with colleagues in South Africa as easily as I did with those in the UK. The work was varied and interesting.
