Application process

  • How is my application evaluated?
    We evaluate the qualifications of the applicant and compare these with the requirements of the job, with the goal of finding the most suitable candidate. The final hiring decision is reached by looking at all the available inputs: CV, letters, references, interview outcomes, and assessment results.
  • When can I expect to hear from you?
    We try to get back to applicants within a few days, but please bear with us if it takes a little longer to respond.
  • Do you use assessments or tests?
    As one of the early steps in the recruitment process, we ask all our applicants to complete two standardised assessments:
    • The Professional Learning Indicator (often referred to as PLI) is a timed 12-minute Cognitive Ability exercise which provides some insights into how a candidate will acquire the new knowledge that is required in the job.
    • The Predictive Index (often called PI) is an adjective check list that asks the applicant to firstly describe how others see them, and then also how they see themselves. This gives a broad and fairly reliable picture of the applicant’s personality.
     Both of these assessments must be taken in the language which the candidate is most comfortable in. This is most often their native language, and it is very important for us to ensure that there is no language barrier when completing the assessments.
  • What happens if I’m invited for a first interview?
    The purpose of the first interview is to develop a good understanding of your personal qualities, skills and experience as well as what motivates you. You will also have the opportunity to learn more about us and our culture, so that we can jointly evaluate how you will thrive within the Group. During the interview, you will also receive feedback on the assessments which you have completed. This interview is most often conducted by an HR professional.
  • What happens at a second interview?
    In the second interview, you will most often have the opportunity to meet the manager of the position for which you have applied. In some cases, the interview may even be with managers from several departments. The managers you meet will be interested in hearing more about you as a person, as well as your professional achievements and ambitions, and how you see yourself in the role for which you have applied.
  • Do you charge any application fees or other fees?
    The A.P. Moller - Maersk Group as a matter of practice, does not charge any application, processing or training fee at any stage of the recruitment process. If you encounter vacancy announcements with our name on it, requesting payments of any kind, these are fraudulous. If you have questions as to vacancy announcements you may have received, please refer to this website, and to the contact person listed in the vacancy in question.
  • How long does the recruitment process take?
    The entire recruitment process usually takes 4 to 6 weeks, although this can vary depending on geographic location.
