    Receptionist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Volkswagen (San Diego, CA) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was offered a position as a receptionist. However, one week later W---- called me and asked me specific questions about a DUI I had gotten as a teenager (I am now 25). Another week went by and I attempted to contact W---- and was ignored. Another week later I was mailed documents about the companies right to take back the job offer and another week after, they sent letter of Adverse Action. If my mistakes as a teenager was knowingly going to be a problem then I don't understand why I couldn't be granted the respect and professionalism of letting me know that during our initial phone conversation. I had turned down 2 job offers for this position. Since my DUI I have held 3 managerial positions for 3 multimillion dollar companies. I have more than proven that I have changed from the teen who lived in her car, to the 25 yr old married military spouse trying to support a family. I'm not making excuses for something I brought on myself, but I at least deserved professionalism and not to be avoided for a month, then given a letter in the mail. When being offered the job, the management team prided themselves on transparency. That was clearly a lie. You had two opportunities to be transparent with me and ran away from both.

    Interview

    I spoke with a very understanding recruiter who sent my resume directly to the most relevant team at the Wolfsburg headquarters. The interview was about an hour long and half technical, half personality match/ more ethics-geared questions. It was a pleasant and unintimidating experience. Be prepared not to have your electronics on you when you come to the factory or get your cameras taped over.

    Interview

    Walk in the park. Nothing else to add. Easy. Hire people for position with no experience and degree far from business. A lot of people let go from major automobile companies for unsatisfactory reviews end up getting hired at Volkswagen. It doesn't matter if you have a degree in biology, chemistry, or else, you will end up in business
