    Bmw are a great brand to work for.

    Worst thing

    Unacceptable targets, and expected to work days off , finish late, forego lunch breaks for nothing, just to hit efficiency target to get a sniff of bonus.

    The pay can be very rewarding if you put in the effort.

    Worst thing

    The stress that goes with wearing yourself out, the importance of high levels of concentration for long periods of time can also be mentally draining. People that can’t cope with either normally don’t make it in this business.

    • £12.00 per hour
    • 25 or older
    • More than 3 years experience
  • Best thing

    The workshop is clean and tidy. And it’s warm. I like the brand. Good annual leave.

    Worst thing

    It’s all commission based with a Low basic salary. The commission is not completely in your hands to earn it because it’s all dependant on what work you are given and if nothing goes wrong. Not knowing if your going to make enough money to live each month. Not having any lunch breaks and working late to try and hit your target. Working saturdays for free. And no paid over time. Management that look down on you and don’t care what you have to say. Equipment that doesn’t work and makes your job harder to do. Having to pay to park at work. Being on your feet all day long.
