I would not exchange this work place that any other, there very much professionalism here. If I were to leave now it would only be for personal goals as now we are challenged by economic struggles.

They need to look at the basic salaries, though working for this company is great and the product sells itself but salary is not up to standard, Volkswagen is a great brand amongst other brands, I really enjoy being a VW employee, the professional training that the company provides for their staff,

Volkswagen Callcentre is a very strict environment where it demands target, they are strict in timing and work ethic, it takes alot of discipline and hard work to work your way up. However, they are very friendly.

What a wonderful work experience to have been part of. the amount of information I learnt on how to deal with day to day tasks that FNI's take for granted were massive. This has given me the edge on the dealership floor.

Weekly presentations to management and the board members. Lots of negotiation and interaction with the suppliers. Great exposure to a fast paced business environment. The reporting manager was a very difficult person to report to, not a people's person.
Pros
Good corporate experience.
Cons
Not enough hours in a day to complete what is required from you.

Take any information use it wisely, apply safety and knowledge that you have been given to apply on working sit or space plus ask if you aren't sure what to do.

VW is a company that manages to cater for local residents in terms of offering them opportunities to be part of their team. I managed to grasp as much knowledge as possible and was able to apply my mechanical experience on my civil engineering exposure.

The company needs an individual who is a self-starter and works with little to no supervision. Room is given to individuals to explore and experiment. A good place for grads to gather the required skills and knowledge required in the industry. Great interactions between management and employees.

Volkswagen takes good care of its employees, they understand the importance of a healthy workforce. Each and every employee has that feeling of pride, they feel proud to be working for Volkswagen. Volkswagen portrays a good image of itself to the public and works hard at maintaining that image. Sometimes the work can get to much and very tiresome but the spirit of comeradery among the workers can be very rewarding.
Pros
Good training and development
Cons
Lines run very fast with targets to reach
