This is how we’ll get to know each other
Find out here how we plan on getting to know each other.
Getting to know each other
You have been told about the advantages at BLS and know how you can personally benefit from them. But maybe you are not totally convinced yet that we are the right fit. In this case, you should speak to someone who knows what makes BLS tick and what it’s really like to work at BLS. That’s what our ambassadors are for. Just arrange a chat.
Or follow us on our social media channels and take a look behind the scenes of the diverse BLS world. Because we are more than “just” a rail operator.

Getting to know you
At last, we get to know you in person. This is always an exciting moment, for us too. So show yourself as you are on the other 364 days as well. We will do that too. We don’t attach any importance to status symbols and we don’t do dress codes – except in jobs with direct customer contact or for reasons of work safety. The first time we meet, you’ll get (almost) everything you want, including all the important information about your desired job. The only thing we cannot offer is the reimbursement of your travel costs. That is your investment in getting to know us.
The second time we meet, we’ll talk in more detail. You’ll get to know other personnel, such as work colleagues, the next manager up and other key personnel. And you’ll find out what package you could expect to receive if we take you on and go home with a specific salary offer.
Depending on the position, there’ll be a trial day or you’ll prove your qualities at an assessment centre. Finally, we like to ask your current or a former boss what makes you stand out and what motivates you.
This process gives you plenty of opportunity to check whether you want to help steer BLS into the future and whether the job advertised is really your dream job.
We are agreed
We are now in the home stretch and are ready to put our money where our mouths are and offer you the job. Our word is our bond; we are happy to confirm with you the key points of our future collaboration by email and send you the employment contract by post.
If – for whatever reason – we find we don’t match, then we’ll inform each other in a constructive way about the reasons, so that both sides can benefit. Not by letter, but in a chat over the phone.
