Recruitment process

We make a virtue out of hiring the right people for the right jobs. If you wish to apply for a job at ALD Automotive, we give you an overview of the recruitment process below.



We only accept applications through our recruitment system, HR Manager, where you can upload your application and your resumé. If relevant for your application, you can also upload other documents such as certificates of education and statements from references. 


Both HR and the recruiting manager read through all applications and choose the candidates to be invited to an interview in the initial stage of the recruitment process.

First interview

Typically, five to seven candidates are invited to a first in-depth interview. In addition to the recruiting manager, an HR Business Partner or another colleague will also attend.

The purpose of the first interview is:

  • to give a short introduction to ALD
  • to inform you of the scope and opportunities of the job
  • to give you the opportunity to present yourself and your qualifications
  • to enable the manager to obtain enough information to assess whether your skills match the requirements set for the job
  • to give you the opportunity to assess whether the job matches your own expectations
  • to align expectations concerning salary and employment terms

Second interview

After the first interview, two or three candidates will typically be invited to a second interview. The recruiting manager as well as a colleague from the department will be attending.

Prior to the second interview, the candidates will be asked to fill out a personality test and a proficiency test online. The purpose of these tests is to map your personal preferences in relation to the job function as well as to examine your manner and method of working. The HR Business Partner will provide feedback on the test results. During the interview, it will be possible to elaborate and comment on the individual test areas.


Before the final offer of employment, we may also obtain refereces from your previous employers, but only with your prior consent. The employment decision ultimately lies with the recruiting manager, and you will be notified verbally if we choose to offer you employment. If we cannot offer you a job, you will receive a written or verbal notice of rejection.

Introduction of new employees

ALD Automotive wishes all new employees to become familiar with their new workplace, including our culture and standards, as quickly as possible. An individual introduction program will be planned for you, which will include ALD Automotive’s organizational structure, mission, vision, and values, as well as an introduction to the professional duties of the job. You will also be assigned a Buddy, who will serve as your first point of contact during the first three months. Your buddy and your manager will be responsible for the introduction process at both the professional and social levels.

The introduction to your professional duties will include:

  • The professional objectives of the department and the position as well as an elaboration of expectations
  • Professional training through peer-to-peer instruction
  • Introduction to internal and external business partners

The introduction will take place over a suitable period of time with regular follow-ups until you have settled in and made a good start on your tasks and assignments.

Follow-up on the introduction process

Your manager will hold a probationary interview with you after 2.5 months in order to set goals and also discuss how well the mutual expectations are being fulfilled. HR will hold a follow-up interview after three months of employment. This interview will be used to obtain feedback on the recruitment process and introducton process as well as your general well-being as an ALD employee.
