Manager, Procurement Interview

Anonymous Employee
Chennai (India)

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Daimler in May 2010.

Interview Details – I had to face 2 round of interviews, first with the reporting manager and then with the department head.
First interview was quite general in the sense as it focussed on the previous experience and domain knowledge (procurement in my case). Then I was also asked to present a small topic to see my presentation skills. Lastly it was salary nego.
2 round looked to me more as as formality as it is was more of HR questions like where you belong to, are you satisfied with the location, job profile, etc.

Interview Question – You are from north of India. will you be satisfied staying in Chennai keeping in mind plant is also 40kms away from the city.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – HR was hard on salary as well as designation negotiations. but if you still have a good profile and if you sense your interview was good try to negotiate as this is still a growing company and in need of good people.

Digital Marketing Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Daimler in April 2011.

Interview Details – Got to know about this job from a job agency. The interview was arranged fairly quickly. Met up with the senior marketing executive and the marketing manager. They were nice and polite but did not seem to be very digital savvy. The office is big and spacious, wear formal.

Aftersales Marketing Intern Interview

Anonymous Employee
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.

Interview Question – How does the Lubricant market look like in Germany and worldwide?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – no negotiations
