    Interview

    Applied online to the Scania Student Intro program, got called a week or two after the application deadline, and asked to come to their recruitment day. The day consisted of group work with other applicants, lunch with employees, an interview, and a tour of the offices. I was interviewed by an HR person and a technical manager. No technical questions, mostly about my personality and education. Two days after the interview I got called and was told that I was accepted into the program.

    • Do you prefer to have few close friends or many, not as close, friends?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    First of all, the salary of the summer job was very low and non-negotiable (SEK ~105). The second reason is that I did not feel like signing up for both summer job and master thesis work, without knowing anything about what they would consist of and how I could affect them.
