Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says

"-Swabian-dominated regardless of what HR materials claim. International employees are often at a disadvantage. -Few people are offered a roadmap on how they can progress throughout their career. -Mercedes unit profit margins are no longer the same as they were in the past and products are relying more on gimmicky technology which is not sustainable."

Former Employee - Owner says

"No Employment Development Plan Totally biased towards German Nationalities HR policies change as per convenience No plan to nurture local talent"

Specialist (Former Employee) says

"Too much of stress and no change in work style No good leaders available for showing carreer path Work life balance is low Stressful life for all employees"

Solution Architect (Current Employee) says

"most idiotic company ever, you need to shoe cleaner to live there, additionally, you will never have growth managers are the use of nothing cause they are living in Daimler because they cannot find job anywhere else."

Stablerfahrer (Former Employee) says

"Ganz einfach Fremdfirmen Arbeiten in Daimler für 10€ 13€ Wol Daimler mit Arbeite vorher haben die diese Arbeit Gamacht für 24€ 26€ Das heißt gibst keine Gerechtigkeit sie müssen das verbessern und nicht die Leute wie Sklaven behandeln"

Automation Development Engineer (Current Employee) says

"I learned much about the automobile industry. It offers me the opportunity to expand my skill set. And interact with very skilled automation engineers."

Facilities Supervisor, Project Manager (Current Employee) says

"But they were not honest. They have very different cultures in the different work areas. you can go one mile from the headquarters and be in 1960, with toxic masculinity, Diva culture, bullying, bad, bad, and I mean very bad management.benefitsEverything else is a con."

Helfer (Former Employee) says

"die Arbeit da war gut und die Mitarbeiter waren serh nett"

Assembler/Production (Former Employee) says

"Let me try to use 150 charaqcters to describe my job at DaimlerChrysler. It's really easy to finish this by saying that they closed the assembly plant I worked at and shipped the entire operation to Mexico."

Accountant (Former Employee) says

"Daimler hires lots of contractors. I met someone there who had been a contractor for 19 years. Don't expect to get on permanently if you accept a contract position here.Montgomery building is nice.No job security."

Receiving Associate (Former Employee) says

"Management is the worst , Corporate cares nothing for co-workers and their well being. This company has a major over turn in employment ..starting pay is descent , their is NO moving up within , or do they ever listen to their employees for other ideas..they allow certain employees to bend the rules , even allow for others to offer drugs ..its a pay check and nothing else.. look else where.VacationManagement .."

Receiving Associate (Former Employee) says

"Management is the worst , Corporate cares nothing for co-workers and their well being. This company has a major over turn in employment .look else where.VacationManagement .."

Warehouse Worker (Former Employee) says

"Management wanted top pay out to hirer only low paying temps. HR rep was total witch. Good money but benefits got expensive. Mandatory ot always. For a company that made over 300million a year alot more could have been done for employees. No Christmas party or bonus. Got turkey coupons at thanksgiving that was taken away. Cooperate greed is going to kill the company.They always wanted more for less.Good pay. Time off.Bad management."

Warehouse Specialist (Former Employee) says

"I feel the employees views and ideas could be taken more seriously. I also feel that who building should be on the same page. All in all its a ok place."

Physical Therapist Assistant (Former Employee) says

"This place has closed and building is gone. Was a fun place to work except manager was terrible."

Montagearbeiter (Former Employee) says

"Bei Daimler werden Schwarzakten von Mitarbeiern geführt, Menschen ausgespielt, und Mobbing am Arbeitnehmer geduldet- gar gefördert. Nie wieder dort arbeiten!"

Systems Engineer (Former Employee) says

"I worked in the Portland IT admin group for 6 years. Half the group was FT Daimler people, half contractors. All the crud work was given to the contractors. The FT people really dissed the contractors on regular basis. Especially the German management. We got tired of the euros coming in to look at what we were doing, bragging about the months of time-off they had and running down the north Americans doings the work in Portland. Every year there were layoffs of the contractor staff. Not a nice place to be."

Logistics specialist (Former Employee) says

"I worked there as a temp and worked hard at my job. i didn't see eye to eye with there safety director and didn't have a job for long after that. the end"

1st und 2nd Level Supporter IT (Former Employee) says

"Sowohl als interner als auch externer Mitarbeiter ist man bei Daimler nur Zweite Wahl, man hat nichts zu sagen bekommt eine schlechte Bezahlung und alle Mitarbeiter werden nicht ernst genommen Verbesserungsvorschläge werden ignoriert und man ist der Hiwi, darf trotz Qualifikation minderwertige Arbeit leisten und bekommt keinerlei Interen Informationen weil die Internen Angst um ihren Job haben. So soll man dann gute Arbeit leisten. Entweder Lohnverzicht 40% oder gehen, ja gehen ist die beste Alternative, lieber Zeitungen austragen als bei der Firma arbeitennullschlechte Beahlung, Stasi Methoden, Schlechtes Arbeitsklima"

Vertrieb smart (Former Employee) says

"Selbstdarstellung von Geschäftsleitung/Führungskräften etc. waren wichtiger als fachliche Kompetenz"

Warehouse worker/ lead (Former Employee) says

"The problem starts at management and goes all the way up , you report drugs, weapons and discrimination and it’s disregarded people getting injured to sue , hr is a joke, people harassing you and I’ve seen it all there. They play the race card big time at Daimler and promote those not deserving because of it. Best to work for one of their competitors they treat you better and have a more positive work placePayManagement, drugs, reverse discrimination"

Senior Design Engineer (Former Employee) says

"The best two things about working here are the great people stuck there with you and the awesome location in Portland, Oregon. There are also a handful of engineering careers there which would be awesome to have. In fact, for anyone not a design engineer it would probably be a darned decent place to work. The reason for the low score is the hypocrisy of being an OEM manufacturer where the design engineers are at the bottom of the totem pole until they become managers and forget what makes the hardware turn. So analysts, accountants, actuaries, programmers, IT specialists, secretaries, coordinators, manufacturers, marketers, drafters, data experts, managers, security guards, and general office resource experts hop on in and have a blast. Design engineers, flee while you can. You'll be jealous of the CAD drafters working under you and get treated like a juvenile monkey until you become an engineering manager. Collaborating is very difficult within design engineering for many reasons, not least of which is sour management worsened by German leadership and distrust. German employees are highly preferred for any roles affording a trace of innovation. Note : Manufacturing engineers also have much better roles here than do design engineers. They are highly visible, autonomous, and oblivious to hardware release rules.Great co-workers and great locationCorrupt upper management"

"RE Mercedes CEO & Brighton
Reply Louise Ts' review.

Your review is just confirmation to what I have gone through with this garage.

They may well have thought that you being a middle/late aged single woman then they could bully you into buying what they wanted to sell you which they did. No customer care at all, selfish staff, not thinking of you but their commission. You certainly saw their excellent customer service at its best.

They also deliberately act in this manner to the disabled customers that have already purchased off of them in the first place so they have already made a vast profit!

They will deliberately give you duff information and this garage is one of the best. I asked one of their staff about the battery/ies in the key fob used on my Mercedes. The reply I received was absolutely amazing and shows they do not care about their customers at all and will deliberately lie to and deceive them.

Much the same about the condition of your car tyre. Give you a load of bull as they did. They certainly NEVER gave a thought about your safety or even checked. A great excuse, it is cold! Too lazy to check at all. These cowboys should be sacked if this is the way they treat humans. Totally disrespectful.

I was told that the battery/ies was charged by a residual voltage when the key was plugged in?
Absolute load of rubbish, no such facility, no such thing exists. This is a stark reminder that if this garage gives you a load of bull about a key battery/ies then giving a load of bull about a car comes naturally.

The fact that they were going to bring a car down which was not even what you required just confirms that the £££ signs were showing to them and not the customers’ requirements at all. They could not be bothered to check the specifications at all.

I took my brand new car in for its’ first service, the disgusting condition it was in when I went to collect it. It was totally covered in dirt and filth and they were actually allowing me to take it away in that condition and shows they did not care at all. To show how bad it was it was even worse than any vehicle I drove round Stanley Airfield, in The Falkland Islands, where the roads were not even made up!!! When I enquired about it they said they cleaned another car next to it!!

I digressed. Being disabled which they were well aware of I decided to get a basic service done as I was going into hospital and the car was going to be garaged an put on SORN, which it still is. I went to collect the car and was surprised to find more than one person dealing with the matter. I was not allowed to take the car.

The posse was to bully me into paying excess of £500+ over and above what had already been agreed to. I recorded the initial agreement and still have it. At NO TIME did they ever ring me to discuss any additional charges as they would have been told NO NOT AUTHORISED AT ALL. Mercedes has caused me severe Mental anguish and distress.
Why would anyone pay any additional amount to put any car into storage and most certainly in my case when I was going into hospital. The latest is from Mercedes CEO that I have to produce identification to get information sent to me the owner at the registered address of mine. Unintelligent individuals again.

I have been onto the so called Mercedes Head office, CEO, to get information on my vehicle and spoke to two incompetent individuals who just read off NODDY lists. Once again lied to as to their position put onto a Rebecca Henry who is as good as the Mercedes standard, lied to me. I was supposed to get a call back on Saturday 29th February 2020 in the afternoon. An evil individual who deliberately added to the mental anguish that Mercedes was and is causing. Why contact them again? It was to get my car converted as I now have only one leg. I WISH I HAD NEVER EVER DEALT WITH MERCEDES."

I was told that the battery/ies was charged by a residual voltage when the key was plugged in? They did not know that they were speaking to an electronics engineer, I did not say anything at the time but I certainly would these days.
