Interview: what should I know?

Congratulations! You have been invited for an interview with us and we look forward to meeting you in person. Face-to-face interviews of course differ from department to department. The following tips apply across the board, however:

  • Make sure you know how to find us and where to park beforehand so you can arrive on time and relaxed for your interview.
  • Ask for information about the interview process and your interviewers in advance from the HR department and/or area you are applying to.
  • Prepare for your interview. Research the REWE Group and the position you are applying for beforehand.
  • Go into the interview with a positive and confident attitude. See yourself as an equal participant in a meeting.
  • Be open and honest during the interview. You will, of course, want to show your best side. But try to be yourself and act as natural as possible.
  • Take advantage of the interview time to clarify any questions you have and to demonstrate your enthusiasm for the desired position.
