Bad management, but good people
Intern (Former Employee), GermanyMarch 15, 2015
Pros: cheap lunch, interesting project topic
Cons: many managers with poor leadership skills, very small compensation
Manager did not have leadership or organizational skills required by their position. Very difficult to move forward with project due to constant changing of goals and lack of explanation for changes. The colleagues were great and offered help and support when it was needed.

Seasonal Customer Service Rep (Former Employee), Fort Lauderdale, FLMarch 13, 2015
Cons: short breaks & fluctuating schedules
A typical day working for this company was somewhat challenging depending on what the member called in reference to, we had several occassions where the call volume was high but the goal was to handle all calls with first call resolution.
What I learned was about the Mercedes Smart Car & all the features it included which was very interesting for me due to me being unaware that the vehicle even existed.
Management & Co-Workers for the most part was very professional & also very helpful as well, whenever complicated situations occurred the assistance was very persistant.
The hardest part of this job honestly was if a situiation took place & all Supervisors were in a meeting & only Reps were on the production floor, it was a challenge because if it's an answer that you don't know with no assistance from a Supervisor this made the call now turn more difficult.
The enjoyable part of the job for me was assisting the members because Iam very passionate about assisting others.

Not the best place for freiwilliges-praktikum
Fertigungskoordination / Praktikum (Former Employee), Stuttgart, BWFebruary 28, 2015
With the new "minimum wage" law, Bosch will mostly prefer Students with compulsory praktikums, since they are gonna be paid less. Students that do not have compulsory internships in they programs, will apply for Freiwilliges-praktikum, and they will be paid double (but Bosch is most likely not going to recruit them!)

counter productive work place.
Factory Operator (Former Employee), ENGFebruary 25, 2015
Pros: n/a
Cons: everything
I've worked at the Bosch factory for two seasons now, the first time i was there it took a month to fully get in to the swing of things. This time around it took a matter of days to get in to it, which sounds like a good thing, but it's not. A day of training which is seemingly pointless, hours and hours of waiting for parts to come in or be found (yes, they have been days where we have stopped working for up to 3 hours while staff try and find parts IN the factory) Zero efficacy, zero organization and zero moral for any members of staff. Hard work is rewarded with nothing. They ignore their own rules and regulations (to when it suits them). The people I work with are great fun to be around and are the only reason I continue to work there. If you want a job that is easy (so easy that you are often paid to do nothing) then yes, this may be for you. Be warned, you will feel like a cleaner as that's what they ask you to do when the production lines are down.

Laborer (Former Employee), Morrilton, ARFebruary 21, 2015
Pros: paid time off
Cons: long hours
A typical day at Bosch was getting to my station, gathering my equipment and performing what was asked of me each day. The management was ok and my co-workers were awesome.

Sales Customer Service Intern (Former Employee), Madrid, MDJanuary 7, 2015
Pros: great team
Cons: interns were not treated well in terms of contracts and benefits
A typical day would start off with producing the daily sales report fr the previous day and sending this out to al of the sales reps across Spain and Portugal. After doing this I would have a variety of tasks that I would complete during the day which meant that everyday was different. The tasks could range from updating prices and discounts on products on SAP, maintaining records of invoices for each sector of the power tools department, obtaining mobile phones, SIM cards or laptops for members of the department.

Every other month I had to work with the managers of each brand of Power Tools in order to create campaigns for exclusive customers, and every week I had to send out information about the sales of these customers in order to analyse what they were buying.
