    Product Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Herndon, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Volkswagen Group of America (Herndon, VA).

    Interview

    The HR manger that I worked with was an amazing introduction to the company. She was very receptive, easy to get along with and constantly keeping in touch which I greatly appreciated.

    As others have said the entire process is much more laid back than other companies. I felt totally comfortable from the phone screen to the in person presentation.

    Started as a phone screen with HR reviewing experiences, background, expectations and organizational overview. That lead to a phone interview with a panel of managers (including the hiring manager) that consisted of mostly behavioral questions. That lead to an in person care study presentation with a 4 person panel. All expectations were extremely clear and communicated well in advance.

    They are very direct and will ask you the tough questions so be prepared and know your subject matter like the back of your hand.

    Offers took less than 24 business hours to be communicated for all interviews and final offer.

    Multiple rounds of interviews including video and one on one skype, online assessments, sending in transcript and then being invited for on-site interviews. Interviewer was very nice, but asked confusing questions and then pushed me even further asking for more information repeatedly.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Volkswagen Group of America (Auburn Hills, MI) in January 2018.

    Interview

    The process was a smooth as anyone could have hoped. My recruiting contact was, and continues to be, one of the most helpful and experienced that I have ever dealt with. She was consistently available to provide me with everything I needed to move forward, and I am thankful to say that I eventually received a job offer. I could not have done it without her. The ability to humanize what is generally such a cold process is so welcoming for someone interviewing. I could not have asked for anything better, and I am very grateful.

    Digital Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Herndon, VA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Volkswagen Group of America (Herndon, VA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The interview took about two hours, with two rounds of interviews (three employees at each round, each round took about one hour). The interviewers gave great insight about the company and their goals. I was nervous and intimidated at first, but it didn't take long for me to feel comfortable talking to them since they took the time to introduce themselves and their roles to me. Only downside was since the interview was two rounds back-to-back, it felt a little exhausting having to repeat myself to the second round of interviewers. Nonetheless, I enjoyed the experience and was offered the position a week later. I immediately accepted and it's been one of the best decisions of my life!

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Volkswagen Group of America in May 2017.

    Interview

    First I met the manager of the department and chatted about the position, my experience and expectations. It was informal and the atmosphere was great. It went well and I got a topic to present on about 2-3 weeks later. The team was very friendly and we had great discussions afterwards. According to the management they needed someone ASAP and they would get back to me within a week. Then nothing. I called and sent emails after a couple of weeks. Finally, weeks later I got a response saying that they can’t offer the position to me without any further explanation. Luckily, I accepted another offer by then.

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Volkswagen Group of America (Lancaster, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Again, a set of HR people who are only interested to know how much $ one is making. They don't seem to care about anything else. I bet they don't have good and talented individuals on staff, which can explain why they cheated on the Emission tests and are now paying a big fine.
