Frequently Asked Questions
For an application to our Kassel site, please use our online application system.
For all other sites, you have the choice between presenting yourself via our online application system, by e-mail or with a traditional postal application. The addresses of the respective sites can be found here or directly in the job advertisements.
The contact persons and their contact details at the respective sites can be found here.
Please register through the online application system and assign your application to the relevant sites.
If you apply online, please fill in at least one application form completely. Independently of this, you can attach further documents, in particular personal letters or an additional tabular curriculum vitae. Moreover, we expect at least these two documents if you are making your application by e-mail or post. In order to support you application, please enclose or attach all important certificates and official documents.
The performance, skills, creativity, commitment and mobility of our employees are important conditions for our success. For this reason, your letter should elaborate on your motivation, the aforementioned success factors and your salary expectations in addition to the position you are applying for with us. In the case of speculative applications, please indicate the area of work you are interested in and why.
It is especially important to us, that you assess yourself realistically and honestly, and communicate an image of yourself that is reflected later at interview.
Please include in your letter or CV your contact details (if possible, also an e-mail address) at which you can be reached.
If you are not applying online or wish to additionally attach a CV to your online application, this should be in tabular form and chronological sequence and reflect the most important stages in your education and career until now. Any chronological gaps should be explained briefly but intelligibly.
If you have professional experience or have already completed an internship in the past, a short list and description of the duties you performed is very helpful. In the case of exam results, please always indicate the grades and points you received.
In addition, we are also very interested in any additional skills you may have acquired, e.g. IT or language skills, and in your hobbies, of course.
As soon as we have received your application, we will send you a confirmation of receipt (if necessary, also by e-mail). Your application will then be examined in one or more specialist departments. This may take a while, since we of course wish to ensure that your documents receive the attention they deserve and can be examined in detail. We will contact you again as soon as possible and, if necessary, inform you about further steps.
By making a comprehensive application, you give us the opportunity to gain a really good impression of your personality and qualifications. If questions remain open, we will contact you, if necessary by phone.
If you are a suitable candidate, we will invite you to an interview, which will be conducted by a representative from the personnel department and at least one representative from the specialist department, normally the competent superior. Please allow for at least two hours of conversation with you.
Depending on whether we have already managed to gain a comprehensive picture of each other during the first interview, a second interview may be conducted.
In the selection process for the Commercial Trainee Programme, you will be invited to attend a one-day assessment centre if you are a suitable candidate. Within this framework, individual and group tasks will be set. Finally, a short interview with specialist questions will also often be held.
In this case, you are welcome to make a speculative application. In the online application system (currently for the Kassel and Bernburg sites), please select the site and professional group for which you wish to apply. You can then create or expand your profile and also attach your own documents.
For all other sites, please select the relevant contact person for a speculative application as well as their contact details from our map.
