bauMax application tips


Before applying for a job at bauMax, in order to be as well prepared as possible, you should obtain information about our company, mission statement, locations and, above all, our job profiles.
The best possible application documents are the key to a successful interview.

Which factors should be taken into account in your application documents?

Professional qualities
Please ensure that your application documents are prepared in a professional manner – they are your visiting card!
Any spelling or grammatical errors, contradictory statements, an incorrect contact person or the name of a competing company do not make a good impression!

Personal qualities
Your application should highlight your personal qualities. What could you contribute to bauMax? Which special abilities would give you an advantage? Remember that the personnel manager will have to read large quantities of applications - for this reason you should state at the very beginning which position interests you.
The golden rule is the layout should be appropriate for bauMax and the relevant position.
