    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.

    Internship At Daimler Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.
