        Former Employee - Business Manager in Ashford, Kent, South East England, England

        I worked at BMW full-time for more than 8 years

        Pros

        Full training given for everyone in every department which should keep standards high across the board

        Cons

        Old school commission structure which I think it’s time is well and truly over, sales team work extremely long hours for no extra, they do not have ‘overtime’ but expected to work weekend for launches, sales events, prospect evenings.

        Advice to Management

        Management should come up to date with pay plan and hours, everything is always brought up to date with the cars and training but why oh why still the old mentality on the sales ?
