If you have any questions about your application to MISUMI, you will find the answers to the most important topics in our FAQ overview:

Application in times of the COVID-19 pandemic

As a company, we are taking the spread of COVID-19 very seriously and will do the utmost to protect your health and the health of our employees. We also very keen to continue our recruitment processes. That’s why we are now conducting job interviews by video or over the telephone. We have put together a series of questions and answers about the MISUMI application process below.

We would like to wish you the best of luck with your application. Stay healthy!

Yes! We are still planning to fill all the positions currently advertised. So we look forward to receiving your online application!

Due to the current situation, it may take a little longer than usual to receive a reply from us. However, we will try to contact you as soon as possible.

We hold all job interviews by video conference or over the phone.

Depending on the area concerned, the tool used to hold a video interview may differ. You will receive the necessary information sufficiently in advance of the interview.

In order to be prepared in the best possible way for the video interview, you should consider the following:



Check whether your technology is working beforehand (Internet connection, webcam, sound, etc.).



Ensure you are in as quiet an environment as possible where you will not be disturbed.



Look into the camera before the interview and make sure that you can be seen clearly. Make sure you have good lighting conditions (it should not be too bright or too dark).

If you do not have the necessary technical equipment, please get in touch with us as soon as possible. There is the option to have a telephone interview instead.

We will let you know what happens next. We ask for your understanding that the process may take a little longer than usual due to the current situation.

You can submit your application in digital form on our Job Portal. You can compile all the necessary data on this portal simply and without any time pressure and upload the relevant documents.

We are planning to offer new internships again in 2019 and look forward to hearing from you. Please consider which department you would like to do your internship in. If you have any questions, you can feel free to contact us in advance.

You can find all our vacancies here. If there is nothing suitable for you here, you can submit an unsolicited application online. If we then have a suitable position, we will get in contact with you. However, please also feel free to search for new suitable vacancies on a regular basis.

Yes, we look forward to receiving any suitable application.

A detailed application includes a curriculum vitae, references, certificates and a cover letter with your desired salary and availability.

In this digital age, we ask that you refrain from sending your applications by post and solely apply using our Job Portal.

First, you will receive a confirmation of receipt. We will then check your documents extensively and carefully. This may take some time. After this, we will contact you as soon as possible with feedback.

We take a lot of time when choosing our new employees. You may have up to 3 rounds of interviews at MISUMI Europa. We attach great importance to treating one another with respect and conducting an interview face to face. In some cases, it makes sense to run through a business case together with the applicant.

Candidates that we have met in person and interviewed in numerous rounds will receive open, personal feedback from us.

Yes, you can log in at any time and change your status.

We recommend that you take a closer look at our task and skills profile and find out about our company. An authentic and open approach is important to us.

Our tip: “Practice makes perfect.” Prepare for the business case interviews.

You are a good fit for us if you like to make things happen independently and are driven by achieving results. You should also be able to convince us of your ability to think in a structured way and define problems clearly.

If you have decided to apply to work at our European headquarters in Frankfurt, you can submit your documents in German and in English. As we are a company with a distinct international focus, the language at our workplace is English. You should feel comfortable with the language to be able to gain a quick understanding of all the necessary content.

Yes, we look forward to receiving another application from you.

All our new colleagues go through two welcome days to ensure a successful start together at MISUMI. You will also go through your own individual induction plan after this. Your colleagues will be happy to answer any questions you may have and provide you with support in your first few weeks.

MISUMI attaches great importance to the development of its employees. The actual period until the promotion is dependent on your performance.
