    Interview process

    The whole process ran very smoothly with regular contact from Mercedes-Benz to check how everything was going. I felt that there was quite a strong personal touch throughout. Having applied to quite a few different schemes, that's NOT always the case!

    I had a telephone interview which included my motivations for working for Mercedes-Benz UK. I was also asked about how customer-focussed I was, and asked for examples of when I've delivered excellent customer service. It was clear to me just how much emphasis Mercedes-Benz put on their customers from the questions asked! This was conducted at a Dealership which gave me a chance to see how the business operates at the practical level.

    I was also interviewed as part of the Assessment Centre by a member of the HR team, this was conducted at Mercedes-Benz world, the UK Mercedes Brand centre and museum which was awesome! This interview was more geared towards my career path and previous extra-curricular and work experience.

    Most difficult question

    Also at the assessment centre I was asked to prepare a presentation based on some data provided to me. The time-frames were tight so that's what made this particularly difficult.

    Interview tips

    Thoroughly research the company values and structure of their operations in the UK. Mercedes-Benz in the UK is actually 3 companies who all work together under one umbrella! There is such variety on offer in the graduate programme too so be yourself and be honest about what you want to get from the scheme.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    The assessment centre ran very smoothly. It was conducted at Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey (which I urge you to check out if you're applying!). We had time to mingle as applicants before it started which helped to ease nerves. There was a group presentation, an individual presentation and an individual interview. I found the assessors very professional and personable.
