  • i'd improve their workplace politics.

What I like about the company

I very much enjoy working for Benteler Automotive. They are very nice and willing to train, and offer many different positions to suit your needs.

What I dislike about the company

I disapprove of they way that their politics work within the company. It has to do with networking and knowing the right people. not based on work performance.
