FAQ – Your questions, our answers

Do you still have questions about applying at HSE? We have the answers here:

What happens to my personal data?

Of course, your application documents will be treated confidentially. Only the HR department and the colleagues from the respective department involved in the decision-making process can view the personal data. After the selection process has been completed, the documents will be deleted in accordance with the relevant legal provisions, in particular the GDPR. Here is our Privacy Policy.

Is the job still available / can I still apply?

All jobs listed on the Careers website are updated daily. We are looking forward to your application!

Can I also apply for a job on my own initiative?

Of course! Particularly if you are a career changer, we look forward to your unsolicited application.

Can I also send my application documents by post / in paper form?

We look forward to all applications, no matter how we receive them. However, we strongly recommend that you use our convenient online application form. We made every effort to make the application process as easy and time-saving as possible. Apart from that, you save costs for documents and postage when applying online – and walking to the mailbox. If you still want to apply by post, please note that the process takes significantly longer, and we cannot send the documents back to you.

I am changing careers. Should I even bother applying?

Yes! We welcome career changers.So what are you waiting for? Apply here!!

Can I apply for several positions at the same time?

Yes, if your qualifications and the requirement profiles match, then this is possible. However, for technical reasons you must upload your documents individually for each position.

What should I wear to the interview?

We are a relaxed company and we dress accordingly. Certain clothing is required for some positions in logistics centers for security reasons, but otherwise we wear casual everyday clothing.

For the job interview, it is best to dress in a way that is comfortable for you. A suit, tie, or dress are not necessary with us.

Who will be interviewing me?

In general, the manager from the department and the responsible recruiter conduct the interview. You will receive the names of your interviewers with your invitation to the interview.


Is the interview carried out on a first name or last name basis?

At HSE, we are on a first name basis. From day one. Would you prefer to familiarize yourself first? Then of course we can address each other by last name in the beginning.

What benefits does HSE offer its employees?

A lot of benefits! Some would even say that there are so many that it is impossible to list them. From 30 days of vacation, home office and flexible work, free parking, and massages – we have compiled a full list here.
