    Pros

    International exposure, opportunity to see many of the Daimler locations worldwide. Exposure at higher levels of management. High level of autonomy with regards to scope of your individual 15-18 month CAReer program. Opportunity to learn several different fields & functions, a rare opportunity to experience various jobs in order to see what you enjoy/dislike or find a talent you didn't know you possessed/lacked. Great opportunities for networking within Daimler by meeting so many trainees from around the world.

    Cons

    High amount of travel could be inconvenient for some. Pay is not as high as at some companies, especially coming out of business school (however what you lack in pay you get in international experiences/travel & the opportunity to try multiple job functions). The position is theoretically a fast track to a management position with higher pay, if you don't make manager though your salary will remain low.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Daimler.

    Interview

    On site interview with two managers, one of which would be my manager. Was invited to attend assessment center interview the following week. The assessment interview was held on site and lasted all day. Involved variety of individual and group assessments that were observed by 2-6 managers as well as HR rep. Very competitive and somewhat stressful process. Received a call the following week with an offer.
