Please note, however, that we can only process applications which were entered via our online system. This allows us to process your data smoothly and respond to your application quickly: it also saves you time and money. Filling out the application only takes 10 to 15 minutes. Of course you can include your files as attachments. Do you have a profile at XING or LinkedIn? Then you can also conveniently import your files there into our application-management system.
Please make sure your files are available in one of the following file formats: .pdf, .doc, .xls, .ppt, .pps, .rtf, .txt, .odt, .ods, .odp, .jpg, .gif, .png or .bmp (max. 7 MB per file). Each document must be uploaded as a separate file.
No matter whether you apply online or offline, we follow a clearly structured procedure when we go through your file, and it depends on whether you are applying for a vacancy or sending an unsolicited application.
If you have applied for a specific position, your file will be entered in our application-management system. Shortly thereafter you will receive a confirmation.
Your file will be sent directly to the appropriate HR department. This process usually takes two to four weeks.
The first interview helps us get to know each other and usually lasts around 60 minutes. In the interview, a representative from Human Resources and someone from the department in question (usually a direct supervisor) will present the position and the working environment in detail. If your qualifications are convincing and there is good chemistry between us, we will invite you to a second interview to discuss things in depth. The focus will then be more on topics outside of your field. The people taking part in this conversation will not only be the HR representative and direct supervisor but other employees as well, such as additional managers or representatives of the department. In some cases we may also invite you to a third interview.
If all of the interviews have gone well and we have successfully negotiated your contract, then there is nothing standing in your way as far as working at Fresenius is concerned.
Your unsolicited (“cold”) application is sent to a central pool of similar applicants. Please use the cover letter and the appropriate fields of the application form to indicate the positions and areas of technical expertise you are interested in. Suitable applications will be sent to the appropriate departments. If a match cannot be found right away, your file will remain in our pool of applicants. You always have the option of actively deleting your application.
The overall duration of the application process and the timing of each step also naturally depends on your availability. The time frame can vary, especially beginning with the first interview.
