What we offer
Open Communication and Feedback
An open communication and feedback culture is very important to us. An important part of this culture is the so-called “Stimmungsbarometer” (Opinion Barometer).
Stimmungsbarometer is an instrument of the Volkswagen Group to anonymously collect employees’ feedback regarding their satisfaction with the company. Employees have the opportunity to proactively make suggestions for improvements.
Feedback reports are prepared for all functional areas and are then discussed between the employees and their superiors who jointly determine appropriate improvement measures for the future.
Comfortable Working Environment
Besides an attractive compensation system, VWATD offers a new and modern plant, state-of-the-art machinery and technology as well as a high standard for a comfortable, clean and safe atmosphere. The commute to and from the plant, provided by the company, consists of a fleet of modern buses providing safe and comfortable transportation. VWATD provides housing or support in finding suitable accommodation for colleagues from abroad. Newly established canteens offer a rich variety of Chinese and Western meals available free of charge for all employees. For first-aid, we established an on-site clinic where a Chinese and English speaking doctor is available 24/7, as well as a German speaking doctor (on demand).
International Working Atmosphere
Being part of one of the largest car makers in the world, internationality for us is a given. In addition to high technical qualifications our workforce also boasts strong language competencies, which means a casual mix of conversation in Chinese, English and German among colleagues, regardless of their origins, is a part of our daily work. For us, internationality and diversity are not goals, but daily common practice. Meanwhile, we initiated the International Talent Exchange Program, which aims to create a pillar of employee development within the Volkswagen Group. It provides employees with the opportunity to see other parts of the Group, gain international experience, further develop their skills and build relationships within the Group.
Competitive Compensation & Benefits
In addition to an attractive basic salary, VWATD offers its employees additional benefits. This includes an annual bonus, which consists of a 13th salary and variable company and personal performance bonus. We believe that good work should be rewarded. Furthermore we offer (depending on the position and contract type) a supplementary medical insurance, housing, a company car or a possibility to purchase a vehicle from our partners at a reduced price, a company phone or a financial subsidy for use of a private device and much more. Of course our shuttle service, canteens and on-site first aid clinic are available free of charge for all employees.
