    I worked at Volkswagen full-time

    Pros

    One of the best automotive industries with very high production figures. High tech equipment and a lot to learn. Especially about process design and optimization.

    Cons

    The Volkswagen India plant is although a high tech plant but it still is a manual plant and does not have the latest technology in use for production.

    Advice to Management

    Investment in new equipment will greatly boost production figures. Developing products according to the market you are targetting will go a long way in increasing the brand value.

    Interview

    Fairly standard process. A recruiter came to a college campus and interviews were held on site. The team was helpful and kind. The questions were not too difficult. Overall a good learning experience.
