Finance Intern Interview

Finance Intern

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed 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

Internship At Daimler
Stuttgart (Germany)

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed 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.

Aftersales Marketing Intern Interview

Aftersales Marketing Intern
Stuttgart (Germany)

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Daimler in December 2012.

Interview Details – It all starts with the online applications, than there will be a phone call to set up an interview date, most people have to travel to Germany but if you are a foreigner it might happen that it will be only a phone call. The interview itself is in German but some parts are in English.

The interview itself is almost 2 hour long. Usually the interviewer starts with the explaination of the area you would be working in and what this internship would look like (routine tasks and extra projects) than you have to tell everything about you. Than you get a case study where you have to explain and understand a graph of the aftersales market. Than you will be asked some questions like: What are your weaknesses or do you like to work in a team or how well you speak english (This section might be in english) etc. Finally the interviewer will be happy to let ask you questions.

Than in 3-4 weeks you will know if you got the internship and than it will be submited to the board if they do accept you.
