My placement year at BSH was thoroughly enjoyable. I have gained a lot of experience that will be beneficial when continuing on my studies and in future job roles. I believe that the colleagues in my department and other interns have definitely made the year even better. The pandemic has also shown how well BSH has taken care of its employees during these times, and has given me the stepping stone to working from home.
I was a Customer Service Intern for 11 months at BSH Home Appliances. I enjoyed working for the company every day. Since day 1 we had separate events only for the interns - Induction days, face-to-face and online training and more, which gave me an opportunity to interact with other interns and to expand my knowledge of the company and gain / improve skills such as organisation, management, etc.; and I was also a part of a lot of company's and departments' events which again helped to get to know the people more and feel more incorporated with the company.
I enjoyed my time with BSH more than I thought I would when I first started it. The role I did in Supply Chain was a challenging role to say the least but the pressure and responsibility placed upon me meant was treated like a normal employee which made me feel like a genuine part of a very hard working team.
I really enjoyed working for BSH. It was a beneficial place to work, both for my development in the workplace and socially. Everyone I worked with was kind and always happy to help or answer a question. I feel as though I have learnt a lot working for BSH and I have been very happy with all the work I have been asked to do. BSH looked after their interns extremely well, especially during the pandemic when lots of interns were losing their placements.
I thoroughly enjoyed my placement year. It is a huge company to work for and it was a privelege to work for them. It had a very friendly and fun atmosphere but at the same time, everyone knew their job roles and were extremely hard working. If i was to get an offer to come back, I wouldn't have to think twice.
Really valuable experience working with the trade marketing team. Learned a variety of new skills and given a lot of responsibility thorough the year. Had really lovely colleges which supported me to understanding the role. Would highly recommend coming here for any student who wants to gain as much as possible from placement.
My university placement year at BSH was a very enjoyable year in which I gained valuable experience which I will be able to take with me for my final year at university, but at the same time it has provided me with knowledge and skills I can use in the future going forward when applying for post graduate jobs.
Really enjoyed it. As it was my first marketing job I have learnt invaluable skills, working methods and software that I will continue to use for the rest of my life. I also really enjoyed getting to know my team and feeling like we are all have a purpose in the business and that everyone is valued.
The placement was an amazing experience, giving me an exposure to different aspects of HR - employee relations, learning & development, and payroll. I rotated between the three teams and took part in different projects, which allowed me to have hands on experience of the processes in HR from the beginning to the end.
My placement experience has been more than I have initially expected. I have not once struggled to get up and get to work. My colleagues and other interns, alongside the work and duties I have been asigned have made my time enjoyable and worthwile. I would happily stay on and continue with my time here once my placement is over.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at BSH, with support from all areas of the business and incredible opportunities throughout the year, there really hasn't been a day that I haven't enjoyed. I've been able to develop some key transferable skills that will not only be able to help in my last year of study, but my long term career. I would recommend a placement at BSH to anyone!
When people ask me what it's like to work at BSH I can’t speak highly enough about the company. The positive culture within the company for me was evident from the first day right until the end of my placement. My line manager also played a significant role in making my placement year not only a memorable one but one that has allowed me to truly grow as an individual and develop many skills that can be applied to any business environment
I very much enjoyed my time working at BSH and would recommend it. The four core company brands (Bosch, Siemens, Neff and Gaggenau) offer a diverse marketing placement experience for incoming placement students. Over the last 12 months I have had the opportunity to work on some major projects that then were launched to thousands of customers. Intern activities and company-wide employee training(s) were also part of the BSH experience. The open and friendly culture harbored at the company allowed me to fit in quickly within my team and over the past few months, develop skills that I can utilize in my future business endeavors. Overall a highly-recommended experience.
I found my placement really interesting as it gave me an insight into innovation within a large enterprise. I found the opportunity to study innovation within an already established business as really insightful. It taught me about the challenges that have to be overcome in order for a large company to remain innovative. As a member of the innovation team, I have got to interact with employees from across the business from the senior leadership team to training which gave me a deep understanding of all the businesses functions.
The tasks were always varied and I was able to improve my employability skills. I would not change my placement year and would happily recommend BSH to any student looking to get a well rounded placement year and to finish the year feeling as though they have developed.
I found the job very interesting. The role opened me up to the world of analytics, showing me the importance of data to project progression and promotion planning. The innovation aspect of my role enabled me to be very creative and open minded. My fellow team memebers gave me multiple opportunities during meetings to give my own input and creative direction to a task.
Working in a dynamic team on topics such as Health & Safety, Business Continuity Management, Policy & Regulations and Risk Management gave a good opportunity to grow and develop from a personal and professional level. I have enjoyed grately my placement year because of working in different areas which gave me the opportunity to build relationships, become more mature, increase my professional and personal netwroks and support me in discovering my streghts, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.
