After successfully applying online in ÖBB Jobs, you will receive a confirmation email so that you can be certain that your application has reached us and is being processed. We will check your document and compare your qualifications with the job descriptions of particular positions. If any documents are missing, we will send you an email asking you to send them to us. If we find your qualifications interesting and they match the requirements of a particular position, we will get in touch with you about how we will proceed. For selected positions, for example our trainee programmes, an assessment centre will follow after the initial meeting, in which you can put your skills and expertise to the test through various every-day working life exercises. For professions requiring special requisites, for example working with the tracks, aptitude tests will also be carried out after the first interview.
