    Aftersales Marketing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stuttgart (Germany)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stuttgart (Germany)

    (Translated from English)

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Daimler in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Es beginnt alles mit den Online-Bewerbungen, dann wird es ein Telefonat geben, um ein Vorstellungsgespräch zu vereinbaren. Die meisten Leute müssen nach Deutschland reisen, aber wenn du Ausländer bist, könnte es nur ein Telefonat sein. Das Gespräch selbst ist auf Deutsch, aber einige Teile sind auf Englisch.

    Das Gespräch selbst dauert fast 2 Stunden. Normalerweise beginnt der Interviewer mit der Erklärung des Bereichs, in dem man arbeiten würde, und wie dieses Praktikum aussehen würde (Routinearbeiten und zusätzliche Projekte), dann muss man alles über sich erzählen. Dann bekommt man eine Fallstudie, in der man ein Diagramm des After-Sales-Marktes erklären und verstehen muss. Dann werden einige Fragen gestellt wie: Was sind Ihre Schwächen; gefällt es Ihnen, in einem Team zu arbeiten; wie gut sprechen Sie Englisch usw. (Dieser Abschnitt könnte auf Englisch sein.) Am Ende lässt dich der Interviewer gerne Fragen stellen.

    Dann in 3-4 Wochen weiß man Bescheid, ob man das Praktikum bekam, und dann wird das zum Ausschuss abgeschickt, wenn sie zusagen.

    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.

    (Translated from English)

    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.

    Interview Questions

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed 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.
