    Pros

    -Nice colleges
    - Very interesting industry

    Cons

    Opel is a very traditional company with no interest to follow the trends in the market. Nobody is willing to change anything they are still working with business practices of the previous century. The company has a lot of financial issues to solve and is not hiring young graduates. So, i would not recommend Opel for an Internship.

    Advice to Management

    Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Adam Opel (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Very well structured interview with several managers of various departments. Asked only few technical, but primarily behavioral questions. All in all, they were very friendly. The interview lasted approximately an hour.
