1. Please give an overview of what your work experience involved:

10/10

The work experience was a great opportunity to learn about lots of different things involved when working at a car dealerships as a sales person. I learnt about loads of different things and mainly my role involved supporting car dealers in selling cars. It was a really great experience and i learnt a lot.

2. What training and skills development did you learn from your work experience?

10/10

Whilst I was there I learnt loads of different skills which I have been able to take away with me. I have learnt about communication skills and the importance of realising you must adjust your technique depending on the customer. I also learnt about your to do administration correctly for simple tasks.

3. To what extent did you enjoy your work experience?

10/10

I really enjoyed my work experience because it was very varied and gave me a chance to see if I would enjoy going into this role in the future. I was able to work with lots of different people and find out about lots of different departments which was interesting.

4. How well organised was your work experience?

10/10

The work experience was pretty well organised as they gave me time to speak with people in different departments to understand their job role and then i was buddied up with a member of staff who let me shadow him to find out more about his role which i was interested in.

5. How much did you learn about the company culture and what it would be like to work there?

10/10

I learnt lots about how the company was ran both from what i read but also from actually speaking to the employees on the business and finding out was they really thought. It was refreshing to hear so many positive reviews on a business and know they were all happy to be at work.

6. How much did your work experience help you in deciding on your future career path?

10/10

The role really helped aid me into deciding what i want to do in the future. This doing the work experience I have decided i would like to continue in education for some time longer before going into this field later on but at a higher level, possibly in a management position.

7. Were you paid or reimbursed for this experience?

10/10

I was not paid for this experience but it was entirely optional how long I was there and because I was keen to find out about the business I did not see this as an issue. i also did the work experience during school holidays so it did not actually affect my school work either.

8. Were there opportunities for networking and meeting other employees?

10/10

There were a few difference opportunities to speak with other members of staff and i really enjoyed doing this as it meant i got to speak to people from all different areas of the business so i gained a good understand of how the dealership department worked together for the business.

9a. Would you recommend Audi to a friend?

Yes

9b. Why?

I would recommend it to a friend as it is a great way to decide what you want to do in the future. Going somewhere like I did meant I was able to see different areas and not just one job role which was interesting as i appreciate a lot of work experience opportunities are more limited in what you can see.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Audi?

If i was to give advice to a friend who was to gain experience, I would recommend they go a visit the dealership and have a chat with the staff to see what options they have available. It might be that over a busy period they could pay someone with some skills to temporarily fill in a role and see what they think of it.
