Once you have sent us your application documents, the responsible departments will usually make a preliminary selection within 14 days. In order to initially get to know each other, we often arrange a phone interview or an interview in person at one of our branches or at our head office in Gummersbach.
We conduct an online applicant test during initial interviews with career starters and graduates, in order to find out more about your personality or professional suitability. You will need to attend an Assessment Centre to join our trainee programme.
If your application is successful, we will then clarify any questions and possible contractual details in a further discussion at the branch. The contract will then be concluded in person or, if necessary, by post.
- Who do I contact if I have questions about the status of my application?
Each job vacancy lists the responsible contact who will be happy to help you. For technical positions, you can contact the Personnel Officer in the respective branch. Speak to our Internal Recruitment colleagues if you are applying for a position in the back office, recruitment or sales or a position in our head office. Below is an overview of all branches in Germany, Austria, France and Spain.
- Do I need to apply multiple times if I am interested in more than one job advertisement?
Please let us know in your cover letter if you are interested in several job offers within a single branch. Should you be interested in positions in different branches, we would recommend that you apply for at least one position in each branch.

A rejection always relates to a specific position and has no impact on other positions or other branches.
