I enjoyed my placement massively. I work in Product marketing which I have a passion for, so my day to day job is already enjoyable, Furthermore my team mates are outgoing and they follow the "work hard play hard" motto which means we often meet outside of work. This plus the fact that we're 40 undergards means it's very much like uni, and the opportunities in and out of work have meant that this has definitely been a great year!
My placement was really enjoyable. The work was repetitive every month, but I believe that is the same for most finance roles. The people I worked with made it more enjoyable, it was a great team in a great office. The perks of the job were really good, including the car and financial bonus. The path from undergraduate to graduate is really poor however.
My work placement at Volkswagen Group UK was an enjoyable year and a fascinating insight into the automotive industry. I gained a lot of experience which will be invaluable when applying for graduate schemes. Volkswagen Group UK was a great company to work for as my role was varied which kept the year interesting and stimulating.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Volkswagen group, as it is such a diverse place to work being home to 5 international brands. Everybody I have met has been great to work with and really keen to help undergrads get the most out of their time here.
Throughout the duration of my placement I have enjoyed working at Volkswagen. The work was challenging throughout meaning that there was never a moment were you felt you weren't pushing yourself. In addition the people are what the made the difference in enjoying my placement, since the people who work at Volkswagen are down to earth and truly nice people. By working in a close nit team this meant that I did enjoy my placement year.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my years placement at Volkswagen Group UK. The group has a brilliant friendly and helpful culture that allowed me to fit right in, I have been lucky enough to have numerous opportunities where I could demonstrate my skills, improve my professional network and gain more experience. I've loved my placement so much I have applied to return as a graduate and really hope that I am successful!
I really enjoyed my placement at Volkswagen Group. It is a fantastic company with amazing products. The focus they put on employees development and training really resonates with me. The exposure being an undergraduate has in the business along with the opportunity to undertake different projects is a lot more than I thought! I enjoyed my placement as I really enjoyed my job role – I found it very interesting. Also I was given a wide range of work to do which increased my knowledge on not only the car market but also businesses on a whole. My team also had a great team environment/atmosphere which made me want to come back the next day!
My time spent here at Volkswagen group has been invaluable, the stereotypical attributes you hear about at university (e.g. teamwork etc.) have been put to the test and I really feel like I have come out for the better. Working for a large company has lots of benefits and this made the year even more enjoyable. There have been good days and bad days but the good days have definitely outweighed the bad days.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Volkswagen Group working specifically for Skoda. The responsibility I was given was immense and it was great doing something I was passionate about; Digital Marketing. I have learnt so much which can now be applied to my dissertation back at university. Volkswagen Group was great to network and build lasting relationships, not just in your own brand but others aswell around Volkswagen Group.
My placement at Volkswagen is being extremely enjoyable. As I am constantly exposed to real work rather than projects, I am truly immersing myself in the experience of working for a large firm. Furthermore, my department constantly organises socials and day's out, so I still have a university experience so to say
