    Pros

    Soild innovation culture, your voice counts.

    Cons

    More than 70% of Excecutives (Managing Directors, Service Directors, Sales Directors, etc) are only from Sweden.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Scania has global presence but is not a truly global company. Increase Diversity in the management position globally, diversity in key positions at the Head office in Sodertalje, Not only Swedish people, it creates a disadvantage to understand a global market.

    Scania Student Intro Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Södertälje (Sweden)
    Anonymous Employee in Södertälje (Sweden)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Scania in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    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.

    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.
