Volkswagen Is Germany's Most Attractive Employer

Volkswagen Is Germany's Most Attractive Employer 
First Place in Overall Rankings 
WOLFSBURG, GERMANY -- (Marketwire) -- 03/12/13 --   Volkswagen is
Germany's most attractive employer. This is a result of a survey of
about 13,000 people working in 17 sectors conducted by Focus news
magazine and the Xing professional and career network. 
The survey initially covered 820 companies with 1,000 or more
employees. Statisticians interviewed employees on experience with
their employers via Xing, viewed opinions on the Internet and took
awards into account. 
In the second stage of the survey, 6,300 employees from 17 sectors
were asked for their assessment of employers. Participants could give
assessments of their own employers and companies in the same sector
on which they felt competent to voice an opinion. Following this
stage, 379 companies were still in the running. Volkswagen took first
place not only in its own sector but also in the survey as a whole. 
"At Volkswagen, skilled workers and engineers, managers and Works
Council members form a strong team. Our cars generate enthusiasm
among our customers," said Dr. Horst Neumann, Member of the Board of
Management of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft responsible for human
resources. He underscored: "We offer our employees first-class
training and a variety of development possibilities. Each individual
employee can be sure that good performance and business success will
pay at Volkswagen." 
Commenting on the study, the editor-in-chief of "Focus," Joerg Quoos,
said: "The strength of our survey is that we interview the people who
know companies best, their employees." 
Each year, the Volkswagen Group recruits about 10,000 recent
university graduates as well as more than 3,500 apprentices. 
There are a variety of entry possibilities including the StartUp
Direct and StartUp Cross trainee schemes, the program for doctoral
students, direct entry for people with more than three years'
experience and opportunities for internships, study projects and
undergraduate theses. 
Applicants from disciplines including the following have good
prospects: Electric traction, lightweight design, vehicle
electronics, mechatronics, electrical engineering, computer science,
mechanical engineering, automotive engineering, sciences, industrial
engineering and economics and business studies.
