So, you have applied for a position with us and would now like to find out what happens next and when you can expect to hear back from us?
Confirmation of receipt
If you submitted your application online, you will receive immediate confirmation of our receipt of your documents. If you submitted your application by post, we would ask you to bear with us a little longer. We will register your application and send you confirmation of receipt as quickly as possible. If you do not hear from us within a week, please feel free to call us to enquire as to the status of your application.
Review of your documents
Your application documents will be reviewed by our employees. Given that we consider each application individually, the amount of time required for this process will depend on the number of applicants for an advertised position, so please allow us some time to come to a properly informed decision. We only start reviewing applications for our trainee programmes once the application process has been concluded.
We aim to get back to you as quickly as possible, however please feel free to get in touch with us at any time if you feel you have been waiting too long for a response.
Given that we are looking to fill a number of different positions, the selection process may vary depending on the position you have applied for. Generally, we will invite you to attend a one-on-one interview,
however for applicants for our trainee programmes the initial meeting is held in a ‘job lounge’ setting. This involves a larger number of applicants interacting in a relaxed environment,
and enables us to have a brief chat with everyone and make their acquaintance. We will then invite you to attend a recruitment day, during which we will have the opportunity to become better acquainted and you will be able to ask us any questions and get a feel for our company and what could be your new job.
As we know how nerve-wracking a selection process can be for most people find interviews, we try to make the experience as pleasant as possible for you. What is it that we expect from you? We would like to see the real you. We are looking for people who are passionate about the retail trade. Before you come to your interview, ask yourself what aspects of the job you enjoy most and where you see the greatest potential for personal development. How do you work best and what qualities would you bring to the position? Do you identify with our values and, if so, which values in particular? We are of course happy to answer any questions you may have with a view to giving you the best possible idea of what you can expect as a Gebr. Heinemann employee.
