    Product Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Volkswagen (Detroit, MI (US)) in May 2019.

    Interview

    On three occasions I have had interviews with Volkswagen. The 1st time I interviewed here, it took two weeks to schedule a phone interview. The interview went well and I waited for feedback. Two weeks later I was sent a rejection notice from the recruiter. The 2nd time I interviewed, it took a few weeks to find out if they were still interested. We had the interview but they ghosted me. The 3rd time was recent, same manager from the first time but for a different role. Similar to our first interaction we had a phone interview and that went well. The hiring manager gave me a 3-day assignment. The recruiter said the assignment was the second round interview. I completed the assignment in 3-days and waited to hear back. One week later and there was silence. After sending an email, I was told they would follow up with the manager. I was notified that the manager took an extended vacation. One week later, the hiring manager said they would give feedback in a few days. Needless to say, the hiring manager never kept their word. Someone eventually followed up but again, that was another week. Their interview process is very unprofessional. They'll exploit you for free labor too.
    Lesson learned.

    Product Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Volkswagen (Auburn Hills, MI (US)) in April 2019.

    Interview

    I’ve interviewed at Volkswagen three times over the course of a year. Two by phone and one in person. My review is from the perspective of a candidate at a staffing firm. Just recently, the hiring manager wanted me to complete a 3 day assignment for the 2nd part of the interview. I completed it in its entirety and they ghosted me. To my knowledge, many of the employees there were hired in after being a contractor first. There are no issues with that approach. However, requesting that candidates work for free without any feedback says more about their work-culture than anything.

    Apprentice Program Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Volkswagen (Chattanooga, TN (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Online application apprenticeship program in Chattanooga. Responded a couple days later for interview. Interview questions was pretty basic. And then you have 2.5 minutes to read a list of directions and put together a water hose and electrical wiring. This thing looks really rough. Most of the holes look stripped out. I feel bad for the kids that never picked up a screwdriver. One lady did not want to be there and the other lady was really nice. Even though the instructions had a different time on how long it should take someone to build you get 2.5 minutes. Or that is how long they gave me.

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Volkswagen.

    Interview

    I was brought into a 2 person panel interview where they spoke very high level technical terms. Administered a complicated MS Excel test with very little explanation or backstory about the test. Given 25 minutes to complete then right before the test began I was given 20 minutes. I was granted 3 questions about the test (be sure to ask all three questions because this is a test too).
