Mgmt plays God with your future and life, people leave w/o explanation, many in tears...

Suggestions for improvement

  • Daily hundle as we have too many departments, and each employee may not have a chance to get to meet each other or does not even know what department do what specific task. It would be good if there is a certain time in a day where a cross department exchange would be nice. Second, we have employee discount for accessories like clothings and parts, however, it is not that easy to get access. It would be nice if they have a separate online portal where employees can buy discounted products online with the ID numbers.

What I like about the company

Friendly coworkers. Supportive and responsible managers. Willing to listen and act. No dramas between coworkers. Comfortable working environment. Well work-life balance. Free coffee and tea. Great break room, and great OT pay.

What I dislike about the company

So far none The only thing is this company is fairly chill and this causes some lazy employess to be lazy and drag the work time out.

  • Let us text our managers if we aren’t coming in If we aren’t busy we should be able to be on our phones Need to give employees at least 7 sick days Every year we should be able to earn more PTO

What I like about the company

I love that we do quartley luncheons and we have a Christmas dinner. All of my teammates and my direct supervisor are fantastic.

What I dislike about the company

The policies are out dated and they need to offer more sick days and pto.

Company Culture

AWFUL!!! DRAMA FILLED!!

Support from management

ZERO!!

Teamwork

If you’re MAU, the BMW employees treat you like you're second class.

Career Development

Some of the section leaders don’t want MAU associated to move forward. THEY WILL HAVE YOU STUCK AT THE SAME LEVEL. I was told by my section leader that she didn’t have time to train me on more jobs. That creates burn out.

Overall compensation for your work

The pay was descent.

Office / Work Environment

Stressful...

Environmental Friendliness

The culture at BMW is absolutely TOXIC!!

Work-Life Balance

Long hours but the schedule does allow for plenty of time off.

Company Image

Everything always looks good from the outside. But once you’re in, it’s awful.

Workplace Safety

Pretty safe and clean.

Challenging Work

I loved the job but depending on who your section leader is, you won’t be trained to do very much. I did the same 4 processes for a year!!

Suggestions for improvement

  • If MAU reps would listen to their employees and act on the unfair treatment.

What I like about the company

Pay was always on time. Benefits where comparable to those of full time BMW employees.

What I dislike about the company

MAU lets their associates get steam rolled by BMW section leaders. They don’t fight for the health and safety of their employees. They’ll let BMW work you like a dog until you’re injured and then they fire you.

Job Security

If you get wrote up about anything H.R. is not for employees. H.R. sides with the supervisor

Suggestions for improvement

  • Human Resources has a peer review if a employee is fired. I feel it should not be peer's who don't even know what work you do.

What I like about the company

The money. That's it
