Used Car Sales Consultant (Former Employee), Oakland, CA – July 12, 2013
Pros: great environment, fast pace, efficient, great hours, great knowledge
Cons: hot summers outside
A day at BMW starts out with me going into my inventory log to see what vehicle are still in stock and how many days they are in inventory. Then, I proceed to the accounting screen to see how much each vehicle has costed the dealership to make sure that is does not put us in the negative for profits. After, I login to the pricing screen to adjust prices – more... properly to attract the consumers with the best service and prices around. Finally, depending on what day of the week I log into the auction sites to preview vehicles and do research to make sure the cost is low to be able to provide my manager with the proper information so that there is profit for the dealership after service is done. Working here I have learned proper time management, multi-tasker, efficient, fast, detail oriented, and budget efficient. It is nice leaving a company where management always ask you will you ever come back. Management at BMW really knows how to work with employees when stuck, or need the proper guidelines when seeming lost. My coworkers are the best part of the dealership because they make coming to work that much exciting. They are all energized and ready to work as a team when needing the help. The hardest part of the job is the long summer heat waves when I am outside adjusting inventory prices. – less
the productive life of working in the car industry
Marketing Internship (Former Employee), Cairo, ON – January 31, 2014
Pros: working with cars
Cons: long hours
As a car fanatic, this job was just out of this world. I got the chance to release a new car with the marketing team. This was a dream come true. I also analyzed all the competing car brands, allowing me to submit a list of information regarding all the newly released competing cars. The management team was very clear from beginning to end, allowing – more... me to do an even greater job than they expected. – less
BMW Mississauga (Former Employee), Mississauga, ON – May 14, 2013
Pros: got to look at nice cars
Cons: didn't get to work on said nice cars
This job was not so enjoyable for me only because i found myself standing around alot of the time watching, instead of learning hands on and actually doing work. I can understand where they were coming from though. Cars are expensive.
BMW Brazil (Former Employee), Brazil – June 25, 2014
Pros: all are smart and taught me everything they knew
When I was given the opportunity to work with BMW I do not know exactly nothing. As I am very determined in just one month I was already doing the work of a professional. I am very grateful for the BMW, I just walk away because I receive a job offer almost irrefutable.
