First Encounter: Job Interview

You have sent off the application documentation and completed the online assessment – now we have to ask for your patience. The time it will take for you to receive feedback from us depends on various factors, such as the number of applications that we receive. Our HR department or the Recruiting Center in Germany will generally contact you in approximately two to three weeks. In some countries, such as Germany, if you have impressed us with the results of your online assessment, you will be invited to a telephone or web interview.

In other countries, the final job interview will take place with a representative of the specialist department and an employee from the local HR department. This interview will give us an opportunity to meet you in person and learn more about you. Of course, there will also be enough time in the interview to answer your questions.

This phase of the process can take a number of weeks since multiple applicants will usually receive an invitation to a personal interview. We appreciate your understanding on this. After all, in the same way that you are searching for a suitable employer, we would like to find the right person for the job.

In some locations and for certain jobs, you may be invited to an assessment center before a final interview.
