    Graduate Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Volkswagen Group of America (Herndon, VA) in January 2020.

    Interview

    First, there is a one-way video screen with behavioral questions. Then, there is a video interview with someone from HR. Then, if the HR people like you, your application gets submitted to hiring managers to review. Then, if selected, you'll make it to the final interview round at the HQ in Herndon. The final interview is two days long, one day with lunch/company overview/group case study activity/cocktail reception with hiring managers. The next day is dedicated to panel interviews.

    The big con of this process is the time it takes - but it's understandable since they have thousands of applications. The process is really great considering - HR does an amazing job of keeping you updated, hitting timeline dates early, and answering questions.

    The group case study was very short - 45 minutes to analyze data and create a PP presentation on one computer in a group of 6-8 people. Then, you present in front of the group and hiring managers for 5 minutes. All around a pretty easy, but hectic, and you have to show your teamwork and presentation skills in a short amount of time.

    The panel interview was very relaxed - maybe it was because I met the people interviewing me the night before at the cocktail reception. The interviewers were great, kept things light, but also threw in some difficult questions.

    Senior Software Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Belmont, CA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Volkswagen Group of America (Belmont, CA) in December 2019.

    Interview

    A third-party recruiter (CyberCoders) reached out. I had the first phone interview in October. The whole interview scheduling and communication was very unprofessional and insulting both with VW and CyberCoders. They did not get back to me and made me wait until late December which they finally schedule the onsite. My onsite interview went well. VW recruiter called me and said the team loved you, we are going to send you the offer in early Jan (she also mentioned she can push people to send the offer it in Dec if I am in a hurry).
    In the first week of Jan, they told me there is some paperwork that they need to complete before they send the offer. In mid-Jan, I emailed them and asked about the situation and if they can expedite the process. I was surprised to hear the same recruiter said we never told you we are going to give you an offer, we are still interviewing!!!!

    Product Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Volkswagen Group of America (Auburn Hills, MI) in May 2019.

    Interview

    Don't interview here. The hiring manager wanted me to complete a 3-day homework assignment for the second round interview. Complete and total disaster they barely know what they're doing over there. But here is some context on their "homework" assignment - the first exercise was to redesign the roundabout in Swindon England. The second exercise was to redesign a locked door from the inside. The third exercise was to create a Yelp feature for their mobile application! I did all 3 of these exercises and still got rejected. Oh wait, I got rejected 3 weeks later after being ghosted. Its amazing how picky this company is - they want ethical candidates but they weren't ethical in their emissions scandal. Don't waste your time interviewing here. No wonder the company looks so dreary and depressed inside at their HQ.

    Interview Questions

    • Create a business plan for a yelp feature, also develop a mockup of your idea using using Invision.   Answer Question
