If you succeeded in convincing us during the pre-screening process, you would be invited to a personal interview. The interview is primarily focused on getting to know you better, both your qualifications and your personal traits. You will also be offered a chance to get an idea of how BASF operates as an employer.
If you won us in a personal talk, we will contact you via phone and talk with you about the further procedure. We have an attractive total offer which consists of a competitive salary and appealing additional services. You will have many opportunities to develop your personal and professional skills at BASF.
How long does the whole application process take?
In general it takes 2-3 months between a candidate sending the application and receiving the job-offer. The length of time is however influenced by a number of factors and varies depending upon the job posting. For example, finding an interview date can sometimes be complicated since many people are involved; or perhaps you have applied especially early – as a result the process can also take longer.
