    I worked at VW Credit as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of my first internships and they were still willing to hire me. They taught me my job and when I had work it was a good day.

    Cons

    Many days went by when I had nothing at all to do which was extremely frustrating. I would sit hours without nothing to do and I never really felt a part of the team, The interns were never introduced to each other so we had to it ourselves and HR made no effort to help with interns.

    Advice to Management

    A more formalized intern program is needed and bosses needed to have an idea what is expected of them.

    I have been working at VW Credit full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The good managers are REALLY good and invest in your future with the company. Learn & Drives let you experience the vehicles our customers are driving. If you work hard and learn VW politics (different than regular office politics) you will move quickly and be given a lot of opportunities.

    Cons

    Lifers tend to be the most toxic employees but no one does anything about them because that's 'how they are'.
    Management sweeps any negative feedback under the rug and attributes it to one or two disgruntled employees.
    Competitive to the point where you can't trust your peers - they will always be talking about you behind your back.
    Mentality that you are either friends or enemies-'professional relationships' don't exist

    Advice to Management

    Company is forgetting that happy employees will breed happy customers and result in more business. Benefits are getting worse and so is the service our customers receive.

    I have been working at VW Credit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has a family feel and great benefits. In addition as the largest car maker in the world they have the budget and scale to provide some opportunities.

    Cons

    The cons are much as you would expect in any organization of this type and size. It is difficult to say more as I have been with VW Credit, Inc. for so many years.

    Pros

    The people make this company great especially in the credit department. Management is mostly hands off and doesn't micro manage, wealth of experience in my department from other lenders too!

    Cons

    There are not many cons of working here, i guess it would have to be the hours, weekends and some holidays are required.

    I worked at VW Credit as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I guess if there had to be some pros, they would be bathrooms and furniture. Pretty much it. Some co-workers were friendly.

    Cons

    Most higher ups are snobby with their attitude. And for new hires, they politely called us stupid if we "were to ever want to leave this amazing company." Place is run like jail. Have to take breaks and eat only when they say you can. You're watched always, whether it be computer monitoring your activity at all times or you just being watched in more general terms. Reminded me of Soviet Union. Saying people are "drinking the kool-aid" is becoming old, but this place truly is like some weird cult, especially with managers and such.

    Advice to Management

    Get off high horse. You are not that cool. Stop being snobby toward workers and acting like you know all and get angry when we don't know same as you.

    I worked at VW Credit full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, Travel, Bonuses, Vehicle lease options

    Cons

    Unfortunately there are some people put in management positions that have no place being in charge of others. I unfortunately reported to one of them. I was constantly harassed, made fun of due to my ethnicity, and even called "gay" on a few occasions even though I am/was not. This manager happened to be one of the extreme cases of these kinds of problems. HR was fully aware of her conduct and even went so far as to hire a 3rd party consultant to help remedy the situation, but to no avail. Work/Life balance was not respected. Some managers offered comp time, while others like mine expected you to work night and day with no thanks.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of the abusive managers you still have.
