FAQ

What's the best way to apply?

You can send an application for any vacancy by e-mail to recruiting@e-trofit.com. Please send us your complete application (cover letter, resume, certificates, and references) by e-mail. You can of course also apply via a job portal such as Stepstone if a position is advertised there.

Can I submit a speculative application?

Please do! Send us your speculative application by e-mail to recruiting@e-trofit.com. When we advertise a new position, we also scan our pool of speculative applications for suitable candidates. Please make sure your application lists your possible start date and desired salary. It will make it easier for us to process your application if you indicate the areas and types of work you are interested in.

What application documents should I submit?

We need a cover letter, your resume, and relevant certificates and references from you. Please prepare all documents as PDF documents. We cannot open Word documents for security reasons.

What happens with my personal data?

We manage your application materials digitally in a database with protected access. It goes without saying that we comply with the provisions of data protection legislation. We will only store and use your documents for the purpose of processing your application. Only authorized persons will have access to your data. Your application will of course always be handled in strict confidence.

We will retain your documents for 6 months after completion of the application process due to legal requirements. If you give your consent, we will store documents in our pool of applicants beyond this period so that we can contact you again if suitable positions for you become available.

How does the application process proceed?

You submit your application documents – for example by e-mail or via a job portal such as Stepstone. By the way, sending all documents (cover letter, resume, relevant certificates, and references) as PDF documents shortens the process. Please remember to indicate any period of notice and your desired salary.

We will carefully review your application documents, compare your profile with the job requirements, and consult with the specialist department.

If the first impression is positive, we will arrange an initial interview with you. As we usually conduct this over the phone, it is vital to include your current phone number in your application documents.

We will get to know each other better in an initial online interview (via Teams, about 30 min.). And of course, you are welcome to ask us questions, too. We then discuss our impressions from the initial interview with the specialist department and decide whether to invite you for a second interview.

Follow-up interviews take place – wherever possible – face-to-face on site in Denkendorf or Garching. You will then speak to the line manager and have the opportunity to clarify further details about the position and the general conditions.

If you suit us and we suit you, congratulations – the job’s yours! We will start the onboarding process by sending you a contract of employment, and you will receive an invitation to an introduction day at one of our locations. This is where you will be given your laptop and company phone, as well as lots of important information about starting at pepper. You will also have the chance to meet your new colleagues.

Who are my contacts if I have any questions?

Our recruiting team on +49 8466 – 9041233 will be happy to assist you in the event of any questions or concerns regarding your application.

If you have any questions regarding a specific position, you will also find the details of the relevant contact in each of our job offers.

What is the interview process?

We will send you an e-mail invitation containing a link for the initial interview. This link will enable you to join a Microsoft Teams meeting with us using your web browser – very easily and without you having to install anything on your device. You can use your PC and webcam, laptop, tablet, or even your smartphone. And if things don’t work as expected, we’ll still make the call by phone.

We do not do pressure interviews! We want to get to know you as an equal and we attach great importance to a pleasant atmosphere for the interview. The aim of the interview is to assess your suitability for the job, and to find out more about your qualifications, professional experience, and career history. We are particularly interested in the ‘why’ behind each stage of your development. What drives you? What is your goal? We are of course also interested in your personality, motivation, communication skills, and the right team spirit. We will also give you an insight into pepper, our culture (by the way, we are all on first-name terms) as well as the associated conditions and benefits.

At the end of the interview, you will know more about pepper, you will be able to judge whether we are the right company for you, and we will have been able to get to know you better as a person.
