    Internship At Daimler Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stuttgart (Germany)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stuttgart (Germany)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Daimler in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    A month after I applied they emailed me to invite me directly to an on-site interview.

    The 2 interviewers (Project Manager and a colleague) were friendly and talked a lot about the project - I think they talked more than I did, which was strange! There were a couple of typical questions about strengths/weaknesses and study choice, but above all they were interested in my knowledge of the industry and the sector I applied for. As I applied for a non-technical role, this was a bit of a surprise and I struggled to answer the questions.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stuttgart (Germany)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Daimler in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    It all starts with the online applications, than there will be a phone call to set up an interview date, most people have to travel to Germany but if you are a foreigner it might happen that it will be only a phone call. The interview itself is in German but some parts are in English.

    The interview itself is almost 2 hour long. Usually the interviewer starts with the explaination of the area you would be working in and what this internship would look like (routine tasks and extra projects) than you have to tell everything about you. Than you get a case study where you have to explain and understand a graph of the aftersales market. Than you will be asked some questions like: What are your weaknesses or do you like to work in a team or how well you speak english (This section might be in english) etc. Finally the interviewer will be happy to let ask you questions.

    Than in 3-4 weeks you will know if you got the internship and than it will be submited to the board if they do accept you.
