  2. Apply

    As soon as we receive your application, you will receive a confirmation of receipt within 24 hours. This contains a link to your personal tracking page, which keeps you up to date on a daily basis.

  4. Telephone Interview

    Our usual application process includes a telephone interview to get to know each other. You should plan about 20-30 minutes for this.

  6. Face-to-Face-Interview

    After a successful telephone interview, we would like to get to know you better in up to two further interviews in person on site or via MS Teams and align our mutual expectations. Occasionally, we hold selection days at selected locations. This is how we get to know you on site, you get a first impression of your future workplace and, in the best case, you can take home a concrete offer at the end of the day.

  8. You've got the Job!

    We are fast: Between the submission of your application and your start, only about four weeks will pass if you are available immediately! On your personal tracking page you will find more information about your start at Hays.
