    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Daimler in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    I got this information on the uni career site and applied through emails. I got an invitation for site interview in about 1 week. It was in admiralty, HK. On entering the company, out of the color and furnishing I got a simple but efficient feeling. One HR manager welcomed me very warmly with background questions and an internal formal table for me to fill. About 30 mins later, the interviewer came in, a professional and western feel lady. She was quite harsh on various behavior questions and scenario questions, very aggressive and pressure-giving. However she had no technical questions for me which made my advantage invisible. I was struggling on her questions for every small detail on my resume until an hour later I walked out of the conference room. One week later, I fortunately got the offer from her but decided to decline due to better choice. Though it was intern position, it was well paid. Mercedes Benz in HK is no doubt a professional and typical western cultured. It was a hard choice.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ monthsinterviewed at Daimler in June 2011.

    Interview Details

    Der Prozess war sehr langwierig. Der Grund war, dass eine externe Besetzung stattfand und es um eine Position mit Führungsverantwortung ging. Insgesamt gab es 6 Treffen an verschiedenen Orten. Der Inhalt kann nicht verhandelt werden, es gibt festgelegte Schritte.
    In den ersten Gesprächen gab es sehr schnell eine Rückmeldung, aber hinsichtlich administrativer Dinge bewegte sich alles sehr verzögert.

    The process was very tedious. The reason was that it was an external setting acted and it was about a position with leadership responsibilities. making a total of about 6 meetings with different locations. The content can not be negotiated, there are fixed steps.
    In the first interviews, the feedback was very timely manner, but in terms of administrative matters, the whole thing moved very protracted.

    Praktikant Automobilbranche Interview

    (Translated from English)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Daimler in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Einen Monat nach meiner Bewerbung bekam ich eine E-Mail mit einer direkten Einladung zu einem persönlichen Vorstellungsgespräch.

    Die beiden Interviewer (der Projektmanager und ein Kollege) waren sehr freundlich und erzählten viel von dem Projekt - ich glaube, sie redeten mehr als ich, was irgendwie seltsam war! Es gab ein paar der typischen Fragen zu Stärken und Schwächen und der Studienwahl. Vor allem waren sie aber an meinen Kenntnissen in der Industrie und dem Sektor, für den ich mich beworben hatte, interessiert. Dass ich mich für einen nicht-technischen Bereich beworben hatte, war ein bisschen überraschend und ich musste etwas kämpfen, um die Fragen beantworten zu können.

    A month after I applied they emailed me to invite me directly to an on-site interview.

    The 2 interviewers (Project Manager and a colleague) were friendly and talked a lot about the project - I think they talked more than I did, which was strange! There were a couple of typical questions about strengths/weaknesses and study choice, but above all they were interested in my knowledge of the industry and the sector I applied for. As I applied for a non-technical role, this was a bit of a surprise and I struggled to answer the questions.
