    Interview Details

    Phone Screening, Skype Interview, and then In person 2 day interview. Great program, but it takes a long time to go through the interview process. You will not speak to a non HR hiring manage until the last step.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Volkswagen Group of America.

    Interview Details

    Was asked to come in to interview on very short notice, which I was not expecting however I had a couple of days to prepare. Interview laid back and they made you feel comfortable. Questions were standard, mainly going over resume and current/previous roles. It seemed as if they wanted to see if I was the right fit for the position.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Volkswagen Group of America.

    Interview Details

    Their process is in the stone age. They rely on people who are not qualified for their position in HR so things move slowly without proper communication. Fortunately one of the worst is gone after many years. She has been replaced with someone who is as inept and unqualified, but because this company is too lazy to do the work they rely too heavily on their HR.

    Interview Details

    The online application was easy and quick. I was contacted within a week or two of submitting my application online. First, I had a phone interview to discuss my availability and a brief review of my past experiences. Next, they called me in to do an in-person interview. The interviewer was extremely friendly! She made me feel comfortable in the interview process and I didn't feel too nervous. Most of the questions were about detailed explanations of my past experiences and skills. She also had asked a couple behavioral questions.

    Written Correspondence Advocate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Volkswagen Group of America in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    VW is a contract hiring firm. The firm is very prompt which is great. The interview was quick and easy, other than being magically no longer qualified for the position I had come in for and was hired into a position that I can't seem to get out of and into the position I really did qualify for. A bit misleading. Good people though

    Manager - 10E Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Volkswagen Group of America in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was very surprised at the low level of professionalism and process at such a large and established corporation. The recruiter was a nightmare to get back in touch with. She wouldn't return my phone calls, she wouldn't respond to my emails, and it was all on her initiation. It took us four days to reconnect to have the phone conversation and set up the in-person interview. The most surprising incident was receiving an auto-generated rejection email after an in-person interview. I work with this company on a daily basis, and I was encouraged to apply for the position at the behest of a Volkswagen employee. I know that most in-person interview candidates receive a phone call if they make it this far. The only really enjoyable experience was the actual in-person interview. The interviewers were awesome and professional and asked great questions.

    Interview Questions
    • The recruiter actually asked me the heritage/origin of my last name. I'm pretty certain this is a confidential no-no as far as interviewing goes.   View Answer
