    Frequently Asked Questions

    Would you like to join us, but still have a few questions? Here you will find the most important information about your entry opportunities, our application process and similar topics.

    Are the job vacancies on the homepage up-to-date?

    Yes, we continually update our job portal. This is why it only shows you vacant positions.

    How long does the job application process take?

    It depends on the job you apply for, because: the community stretches over multiple corporations within the Krones Group. And each of them has a slightly different recruiting process. However, you will always receive notification once your application has reached us. If we should need a slightly longer time to process your application, we will keep you informed with a status update.

    Should my application prove unsuccessful, will I be informed of the precise reasons for this?

    After a job interview, your point of contact from Human Resources will be only too pleased to give you feedback about how your interview went. Unfortunately we cannot provide you with any information for job applications declined without a job interview.

    If my application is declined, am I free to apply again?

    Of course you may! Tip: If your application for a particular position has been declined, it is best to apply for another job in the community. This will increase your chances of success. Or have you already had a job interview with us and your application was subsequently declined? Then we would recommend that you first request feedback from your contact person in Human Resources.

    Can I improve my chances if I phone about my application?

    No, a phone call has no impact on the selection process. However, we are only too pleased to answer specific questions if they are important for your application. Everything else will be clarified in the job interview.

    May I apply for several job positions simultaneously?

    Yes, you may of course also apply for more than one job if you would be suitable for a number of positions. However, it is important for us to find a common thread in your applications and primarily to visualise your suitability for the individual job profiles.
