I have been working at VW Credit full-time (More than a year)
Not 5 stars ONLY because nothing and no one is perfect.
+ lots of opportunity for people who are willing to work hard.
+ Everyone who works above you has done the lower level work to get where they are.
+ Regarding hiring from temp to permanent and beyond; favoritism is not personal but based on education and hard work. Having any degree and being a team player matters most, which actually contributes a positive work environment.
+ Competitive pay temp or permanent.
- You have to compete for your permanent role. Contractors have to interview for positions and may not get hired on their first interview so you have to be determined. It happens often but not guaranteed.
