Please send us your resume as soon as possible in PDF format with a maximum file size of 5 MB (you can find a program for creating and merging PDF files here).
Receipt of your application
Once we have received your application, you will receive an acknowledgment of receipt by email. We would then ask for your patience, as we need to examine each of your documents individually and coordinate the applications with the respective department. You will usually receive a confirmation within two weeks, but in some cases, this may take longer. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about your application.
If your application has made us curious about you, we will invite you to a telephone interview, depending on where the advertised position is located. You will receive an email invitation to an appointment. The telephone interview takes about 20–30 minutes and lets us get to know you a little. At this point, we would like to know more about your experiences, qualifications and knowledge, as well as your motivation for making a professional change.
Interview and personal meeting
If your application and/or telephone interview have made a good impression, we will invite you to attend a first interview in Kerpen, Germany. There, you will meet our colleagues from the Human Resources department as well as your future supervisors. You will be able to find out more about us and obtain a detailed insight into our company and the job.
Did you convince us in the first interview? Great, the chemistry seems to be right! In a second interview, we would like to complete the picture of us working together. At this point, the main focus is on your personality. You will have the opportunity to meet other colleagues from the team or management—a perfect opportunity to check that we are a good fit for each other.
Has the second interview confirmed our positive impression? Are your experience, knowledge and motivation ideal and is the chemistry right? Perfect! You will receive a contract offer from us with an attractive overall package. We will call you to discuss any additional details.
Soon afterwards, you will hear: “Welcome to A. Schulman!”
We look forward working with you and would like to help you find your feet quickly so that you soon feel part of our team.
