Sixt is dynamic, flexible, innovative - and our application process is too. In terms of recruiting, we like to try new ways (keyword: time-shifted video interviews). This makes it possible for you to answer our questions without worrying about an interview appointment when it fits into your personal schedule.

Apply now in just a few steps on our career page - feel free to include your XING or LinkedIn profile.

As soon as we receive your application we will send you a confirmation email. The HR department will then preselect candidates in coordination with the relevant department. 

There will then be a video or telephone interview - from anywhere, at any time as far as possible. During this interview you will meet an employee from our HR department and be given the details of the position. You will have the opportunity to introduce yourself and present your CV. We will also ask you a few questions about your desired position. 

The next step is a day in the assessment centre together with other candidates. You will be given various exercises and group work as well as a final individual interview with your first feedback. You can also clarify any questions here. 

If you applied for our management trainee operations programme, you will complete a practical day at a Sixt station. On this day you will meet your future colleagues and we will assess whether you fit into the team. In turn, you get an impression of the tasks that may be waiting for you. 

If all goes well - and you're happy too - we look forward to welcoming you to the Sixt team. You will get all the information and documentation about beginning the job - and then you can get started!

Next is the first in-person interview: you will meet a representative of the relevant department here and an employee from our HR department. We will get an idea of your qualifications - and of course the motivation for your application. You have the opportunity to learn more about Sixt and ask your questions about the position.

If the first interview was successful, there will then be a second interview. This is a more in-depth interview and you will meet more colleagues in the department. Now it's all about your professional skills and whether you fit into the team. Following this there will be (depending on position and area) a short technical test. 

If all goes well - and you're happy too - we look forward to welcoming you to the Sixt team. You will get all the information and documentation about beginning the job - and then you can get started! 

APPLICATION TIPS

 

What makes your application a successful one? How much does Sixt put in you? Take the following tips to heart for your application to have the best chance:

Please apply online using our application form! Be as precise as possible in your profile, your goals, and your motivation - then you have a good chance. It is best to answer the following questions: 

- Why does Sixt excite you?
- Why are you the right person for this job?
- What would you like to contribute to make Sixt a little bit better every day?

We also want to see in your CV what experiences qualify you for the position. Likewise, we are interested in other things you are involved in (e.g. in social or cultural areas) and relevant personal interests. 

Important: all documents with references and certificates (e.g. the last two school reports, internship certificates, etc.). Ensure you have a professional application photo that makes a good first impression. Observe all formal criteria - it is better to read it three times than overlook a spelling error.

 

Have you entered your current contact information correctly? Check your email regularly after applying - this is how we will answer you. If you receive an invitation from us, remember to respond in good time as to whether you can keep the appointment. 

Interviews are of course terribly exciting. But don't worry: we just want to get to know you. Of course we will question you, because we are very interested in you and your application. You can also use the opportunity to ask us anything you can think of about the position and Sixt. Tip: research our company and the job thoroughly in advance. We want to know: Why Sixt? Why this position? Why you?

These themes are waiting for you in the interview:

 

1. QUESTIONS ABOUT YOU

Based on your CV, tell us something about your career and how it all happened. We will also ask you what skills or characteristics distinguish you and what your weaknesses are. We want to know: are you a team player or a lone wolf? And what is the perfect workplace for you? We are also interested in how you imagine your professional development.

 

2. QUESTIONS ABOUT SIXT

Of course, we want to know how well you've already dealt with the Sixt company and the area in which you want to work.
