The application process at Eppendorf

From the online application to the first welcome. Our application process is very straightforward and convenient via our application management tool, as this allows us to receive and review applications centrally. An application is therefore only possible online via our application tool.

For professionals

Our recruiting team will review your online application and respond to you individually. If we are impressed, we will invite you to an initial telephone or virtual interview to get to know each other and discuss your motivation for the job. If there is a good fit, we will schedule a second interview, ideally in person on site. Depending on your position, you may also be invited to participate in a further selection process to get to know our company and the specialist department better. If we are a good match, we will send you a contract offer within a few days.

For apprentices, students & trainees

To apply, simply use our applicant management system and you will receive a confirmation of receipt. After we have received your documents, we will review them and get in touch with you once we have made an initial selection. The duration of the assessment process depends on the number of applications we receive. We value your personal impression, motivation, and curiosity as the most important factors. We are excited to have you as an apprentice with us upon successful completion of the application process!

For university students

After receiving your application, we will schedule an initial interview, either digitally or in person. During this approximately one-hour exchange, you will have the opportunity to meet with the responsible Human Resources contact person and a colleague from the specialist department. The purpose of the interview is to learn more about your qualifications and motivation, as well as to answer any questions you may have about Eppendorf and the position. If we're both on the same page about working together, we can't wait to meet you in person and coordinate everything on site!

As long as these positions are still advertised on our website, they are vacant.

We really value getting to know you as a person. What are your priorities? What do you expect from your future employer? What motivates and inspires you?

During our application process, we conduct at least two interviews, possibly case studies or participation in an assessment centre, to get to know you well. This helps us ensure that we make the right decision and that you are convinced that Eppendorf is the employer of your choice.
