The type and seniority of the role that you apply for will determine how many interview stages are required; 1, 2 or 3. This tailored approach allows us to find the perfect fit for the vacancy and for our organisation. It also enables you, the applicant, to get to know us better and find out more about Konecranes. We appreciate that interviewing is a two-way process and we encourage you to explore us during this phase.
During your first face-to-face interview, you will meet with two interviewers; the hiring manager and either, a member of their team or representative from HR. A section of your interview will include competency and/or scenario questions, which enable us to validate your application and gain a better insight into your experience.
You may also be required to complete a psychometric assessment, deliver a presentation, or complete a practical task on the day. For practical assignments, you will be fully briefed, so you’ll know in advance exactly what is expected of you.
We always give applicants adequate time to prepare and we strongly advise to do as much research as possible. If you are unsure about anything prior to, or during the interview, you are free to seek clarification; we never deduct points for asking for clarity, so we urge candidates to ask as many questions as they need.
For senior roles, there may be several stages to your interview, so you will be required to meet us more than once. Not only does this help you relax into the process, but you will also get a chance to really get to know us. The interview may include a psychometric, numerical or verbal assessment. Whilst these assessments may seem daunting, we really just want you to be yourself and answer honestly – our team will make you feel as comfortable as possible throughout the process.
First and second stage interviews normally take around 1-2 weeks depending on candidate and hiring manager availability. If a third stage interview is required, you will be notified in good time. As a general approximation, the application and interview stages will take no longer than 4-6 weeks in total.
