A successful start in our company begins with a successful application.

How long will it take to process my application? What will happen to my data? Can I also apply for a job if currently no suitable job is advertised for me?  Therefore, in the list below we have compiled all the important information for the application process and answers to all of the most frequently asked questions. Just take a look at the FAQ and the helpful tips.

Please send us your application documents with cover letter, curriculum vitae and references. This will help us obtain a detailed impression of you. 

In the ideal case you should apply using the online form attached to the job advertisement. After you have sent your online application you will then receive a confirmation of receipt. 

Your application will be carefully checked by different persons and technical departments. We ask for your understanding if under some circumstances the processing takes a bit longer. This is something we do thoroughly. This is the way we work. 

The application procedure is organized differently according to the respective job on offer. Usually the first step is a personal interview. 

If we are impressed with you at the first application stage, a second meeting takes place. In the second meeting representatives from the technical department are present in which you will later work. This gives you the opportunity to get to know your future area of work and some future colleagues and it gives us the opportunity to gain a lasting impression of your personality, competence, objectives and motivation.

We save your data for statistical reasons in our application database. If you do not wish this, please inform us. You can rest assured that we will treat your personal data as strictly confidential.

Ideally you should apply at least one year in advance to take up an apprenticeship. You can find out when to apply from the apprenticeship positions which are advertised. The start of the apprenticeships is oriented to the end of the summer holidays in the place where the company location is situated.

In Germany an apprenticeship usually lasts between 3 and 3½ years. This will depend on the type of profession, your school-leaving qualification and your personal performance. The exact duration of the training for your desired profession is listed in the description of the apprenticeship.

If you have very good results you can benefit from a shortening of the apprenticeship time. Decisive here are your average marks at the technical college and for most apprenticeships the consent of the company.

The remuneration during the training at MANN+HUMMEL is based on the current agreed tariff at the respective location.

Due to the fact that at MANN+HUMMEL the number of apprentices we take depends on our needs, after your apprenticeship there is a good chance you will be offered an employment contract.
