However, we recognize the importance of flexibility in our global operations. Depending on the position and the geographical location, the application process may vary, and some candidates may experience a more streamlined process.

Your qualifications will be reviewed against the position requirements, and you will be notified if selected to continue further in the process.
First interviews can be conducted by phone or in person. Basic questions are typically asked during this stage, but some interviews can be more in-depth.
Where applicable, human resources will initiate fair and unbiased applicant assessments appropriate for the responsibilities and level of the role.
Follow-up interviews are more in-depth and can involve the manager, peers from other departments, members of the team and sometimes department leadership.
We initiate reference checks, education verification and where appropriate, background and/or controlled substance and medical fitness checks.
A member of the human resources team will contact the selected finalist with a competitive offer based on role, scope, responsibility and local market conditions.

Hi, I'm Julia, a hobby cook and a recruiter based in Raunheim.
I work for Oerlikon, a company that truly values team spirit and innovation in the workplace.
During my interviews, I felt highly appreciated as an individual, and it was evident how the company recognizes the importance of people. For these reasons, I accepted a role at Oerlikon without hesitation.
My advice to you is to be authentic and true to who you are. Show us your strengths and what differentiates you. Don't hesitate to ask questions – it's an excellent way for both of us to learn more about each other.

Hi, I'm Marc, a passionate soccer fan and family father. I am the team leader of the German recruiting team in the OSS division.
Why do I work for Oerlikon? The technological diversity of the product and solution range, the appreciative and down-to-earth corporate culture as well as the opportunity to leave my "footprint" inspire me. You are not a "number" with us.
A job change has an impact on all areas of a candidate's life. It is therefore all the more important that it is a good fit for both sides because I am firmly convinced: There is a "perfect match" for every candidate.
My application tip for you is: Think carefully about what professional goals you want to achieve and in which environment you feel comfortable. If you are invited to an interview: Prepare yourself very well and look forward to getting to know each other. We look forward to catching up with you.

Hi, I’m Kiran! I am a boy mom, I love to travel, and I’m Senior Recruiter based in Michigan.
I love working at Oerlikon because it is such a diverse company. We are in over 30 countries worldwide and have over 80 nationalities working here. Being a British Indian woman, a company that values diversity is important to me.
Having been in Recruiting for over 10 years, I would advise that if you receive an interview request, make sure to familiarize yourself with the company and the job you are interviewing for. We have some great videos that summarize Oerlikon and what we do and we want to make sure that whoever joins the team is just as excited as we are about the company.
