was a Reach Truck Driver (Former Employee), Atlanta, Georgia – July 15, 2014
Pros: it's a job
Cons: they want idiots that are easily controlled. bosch rarely hires anyone.
Not only did I get terminated for a miniscule reason, but they show no empathy and if you have had no previous write ups they will fire you regardless. No room for ADVANCEMENT. I not only drove a reach truck cause I was hand picked but when I had my accident that I reported instantaneously, they fired me for not wearing steel toe boots that I left home – more... on accident cause I'm expecting a child on the way and was at a appointment. My sister passed while I worked there, not only did they not believe me but asked for proof. – less
Pick and work a shift that is best for you. Depending on the department you are placed, deternines work schedule. I was a Visual Inspector and I liked it a lot. One thing I did not like was 3rd Shift. I realized it was not for me. Co Workers were very nice people. You would not walk past a person without greeting each other.

My journey with Bosch Group was amazing. I was given new responsibility and a new challenge every 3 years. I really enjoyed all my roles and was successful in accomplishing the targets given to me. May be that was the reason , my performance was always rewarded with higher responsibility. The production ramp-up experience gave me opportunity to develop – more... my leadership qualities under pressure and adverse situations. I was able to keep my team motivated especially in crises situation. This rich experience has made me confident to take any critical leadership responsibility in future. Moreover, during this period I could very well integrate myself with my International Partners and I realized my potential to work in diverse international teams. I was not only well acknowledged in professional relationship with my International partners but also was well received by them at personal front and could develop good interpersonal relations with them. – less
