Getting a Job with BMW Manufacturing Corp.

SPARTANBURG, S.C. - 08/13/2002

Learning about job availability at BMW Manufacturing Corp. has been made simple with the introduction of a “Careers” link to the factory website, www.bmwusfactory.com. This new web feature allows potential employees to browse opportunities and even apply online.

“We receive thousands of resumes per year for a relatively small number of available positions at BMW,” said Melissa Washburn, Project Leader for Recruitment Marketing and Communications at BMW Manufacturing. “This web-based system allows us to enhance the efficiency of our recruiting process at the plant.”

The “Careers” link enables individuals to seek professional or technical positions, co-ops, and internships. Production and equipment service positions are not available at this time.

To apply, simply log onto www.bmwusfactory.com and click on the “Careers” link. Applicants may create a profile, which documents a candidate’s experience, skills and abilities. Once a profile is created and a position becomes available that best matches the interests and qualifications indicated on a profile, candidates may be invited back to apply. Candidates, however, should visit the site regularly to check for open positions and to ensure that their profile information is current.

“The best way to be considered for a position is to show your interest by actively applying for it,” Washburn said. “The system assists our recruiters in identifying the best-qualified candidates from the information contained in their profile.”

“One of the most exciting things about the careers site is that it allows candidates to have complete control of their information,” said Elizabeth Jende, Section Manager for Recruiting at BMW Manufacturing. “If the candidates keep their information up-to-date, it will remain in BMW’s system allowing us to have accountability and quality control, which is a big plus.” Since the “Careers” link was added in March, the page views have steadily increased each month with more than 17,000 page views in July.

“BMW Manufacturing is always committed to the goal of identifying world-class talent to support our world-class automobiles,” Jende said. “Adding this career link allows us to open up the avenue to strengthen that goal.”
