How does the application process work at Keller & Kalmbach?

You will receive confirmation of receipt of your application by e-mail immediately upon receipt. 
We will first check that your documents are complete and that they generally fit the advertised position. 

Sometimes, e.g. if we have received a large number of applications, the first step is a short phone call with your contact person from the Human Resources department at Keller & Kalmbach.  
This is followed by an initial personal meeting on site. Two of our employees will conduct the interview with you. These are usually your future supervisor and someone from the Human Resources department or a second person from the specialist department. After the mutual introduction you will have the opportunity to talk about yourself, explain your motivation for the job and get answers to all your questions about the job and the company in a relaxed atmosphere.
If both sides are still interested in working together after the first meeting, we will invite you for a second interview. If both sides then continue to come to a positive decision, a concrete contract offer will follow. 
Our aim is to keep the application process as lean as possible and still give both sides enough time and opportunity to make a good decision. 

How do I prepare for the interview?

We would be pleased if you convince us with your skills and interests. Show us why you want to join Keller & Kalmbach and why the advertised position is the ideal one for you. Do not hesitate to prepare your questions. We would also like to take this opportunity to show you why we are the right employer.

How long does the entire selection process take?

The duration of the selection process depends on many aspects, including the number of applicants, the number of interviews and the availability of the people involved. We make every effort to ensure that the selection process is as fast as possible, but at the same time allow the necessary time to make an informed decision. We take sufficient time to get the best possible picture of you and to offer you a comprehensive insight into the position and our company.

I have not found a 100% suitable job offer? Can I also send a speculative application?

You can't find a job that suits you perfectly, but would still like to apply to us? With pleasure! Especially with unsolicited applications, a short letter of motivation will help us to find out what you are looking for. Here, too, we will check your documents very carefully and clarify any open questions from our side with you by telephone if necessary.

Can I reapply to Keller & Kalmbach after a rejection?

With pleasure. Just because it didn't work out for a certain position doesn't mean that we are not interested in you. At a later date you may well be the perfect candidate for the position in question.
I found another job myself. How can I withdraw my application?
If you no longer wish to be considered for a position, simply withdraw your application. Simply send us an e-mail.
