Applying for jobs at TK Elevator

Our hiring process, and tips for your first weeks in the company

We want to make the job search and hiring process as easy as possible for all involved. Here is some information on how we organize the process and what you can expect from us. Jump to the bottom for tips for your first days and weeks as a new colleague.

This is what our hiring process looks like

Once you found a position on our job board that excites you, apply right there online or use one of the other application methods mentioned in the job ad. If you have all your information at hand, this will only take you a few minutes. Soon after, you will then get a confirmation notification that we have received your application. If you apply via email, we will confirm receipt within a few days. In total, the overall hiring process usually takes around six weeks, but this can vary depending on the job and the location to which you apply.

Our recruiters will carefully review your application and qualifications and get in touch with you to discuss details. For some positions, the recruiter might also schedule a telephone conversation to clarify first questions. 
The recruiter will then send your application on to colleagues in the department that you are applying to. They will review your professional qualifications and check them against the job description. 

If we think that you, the selected position and our company might be a good match for each other, we will invite you to a first personal or virtual interview. During the interview, we will talk about your professional background and get to know each other better to determine if we are a good fit for one another. This is also your opportunity to ask all the questions that you might have for us about the company, the team or specifics of the job. At the end of our first meeting, we will discuss next steps and the remaining timeline of the hiring process.

Once we have made our decision, we will notify you immediately and discuss the job offer details. As soon as this is sorted and all relevant committees have given their approval, you are ready to start as a new colleague at TK Elevator! Should our decision not be in your favor, we will also notify you as soon as possible.
