Parts Logistics Intern (Former Employee) – Shippensburg, PA – 26 September 2013
The culture at Volvo allowed to self-exploration. You were given the opportunity, as an intern, to look into other positions and departments. Internal transfers are not uncommon in Volvo. There were self-development workshops several times a month. We were encouraged to take our one-hour lunch and breaks. The employees at Volvo are a family and care about what they do. It shows in their work.
They try to stay healthy in their cafeteria food options.
Service Technician international region (Former Employee) – Elskiltuna – 3 January 2018
North American companies have a lot to learn from the Swedes. Sweden has a very small population Yet Volvo Truck is the world's largest truck manufacturer The reason is simple. The company treats it's workers as family. Doesn't matter what you do you are treated with respect and made to feel as important as Company President
I travelled the world
Had to be very careful and understanding of other cultures. No room for error
