Our Recruitment Process
Valeo’s recruitment process includes several steps, from pre-selection to interviews and onboarding once hired. Country-specific differences also exist. At Valeo, we attach great importance to an application process that gives both the Group and you the opportunity for a thorough and mutual acquaintance.
We invite you to submit your application online or via the career portal. Your informative curriculum vitae and your references are the most important documents. We do not require a cover letter. You are unique! It’s time to show it.
We check your documents promptly and also include other open positions. If your application is convincing, it is time to get to know you better. We will invite you to a telephone interview, which will give you the opportunity to ask further questions. We will then forward your documents to the specialist department. In a technical interview (telephone) as well as in a personal meeting we intensify the first acquaintance.
The job suits you and you suit us? Then nothing stands in the way of your start at Valeo. Your personal onboarding process will ensure that you are integrated into the Valeo family in the best possible way. We want to help every new employee discover Valeo’s culture, technologies and methods. Welcome to our team!
Our Valeo Job Alert Newsletter
Below are some tips to help you improve your chances of joining Valeo!
Understand the Job
An important part of interview preparation is to take the time to review the job content and to get some information about Valeo. As you review the job content (available on valeo.com), make a list of the skills, knowledge, and qualities that you have and that are required for success in the job.
Anticipate and practice
Take the time to practice answering questions you will probably be asked during a job interview. You can anticipate the majority of the questions you will be asked - “How would you describe yourself?”, “Why do you think you would be great for this job?”, “What’s a tough problem you’ve solved?”... This will give you a chance to prepare and practice answers, and will also help calm your nerves.
Listen and ask questions
From the beginning of the interview, your interviewer will give you information, either directly or indirectly. It's important to listen, pay attention to all details and to ask questions. You're building a relationship with the interviewer rather than just providing responses to questions.
Explain your motivation
We want to understand your background and your motivations. Remember we’re not only evaluating your technical ability, but also your soft skills such as how you approach problems and try to solve them.
Speak with data
Every question should be ideally answered with an example that demonstrates you can do what you’re being asked about.
Don't be discouraged if you do not get the job
Remember that there are probably many applicants and only one will get the job. After having been interviewed, ask for a proper feedback about why you did not get the position. Learn from the experience and aim to be better at the next interview.
