The aim of the initial interview is to get to know each other and to clarify basic expectations and questions about your potential employment at WILCO. It does not include any test procedures. It is important to us to have an open discussion atmosphere at eye level.
Usually, WILCO is represented by the direct manager and a specialist from our HR department. 
The initial interview takes place either on site (company headquarters in Wohlen) or via MS Teams.

Your motivation and expectations for employment at WILCO are just as important as the content and objectives of the position. 
During the second interview, you will usually also get to know your future workplace, the team and the next most senior manager. To round off your visit, we will be happy to show you around our exciting assembly hall.
Depending on the position, we also offer trial work (by the hour or for a whole day) or give you the opportunity to put your knowledge to test in a job-related practical exercise.
