STEP 1: Apply
Once you've identified an opportunity, we invite you to submit a resume online. A member of our internal recruitment team will review your credentials against the requirements of the position. If our recruiters find a potential match, they’ll schedule a call to learn more about your skills and experience. Bring your questions — this is your opportunity to learn more about the role and our chance to hear more about you.
STEP 2. Assess
Depending on the role, location, and timeline, we may initiate our dialogue with you via telephone, virtual interview, or through a traditional in-person interview. We recognize an interview should serve a mutual benefit. We invite your questions.
STEP 3: Offer & On-boarding
It's decision time. Offers are generally extended live via telephone from a member of our internal team. (You will receive a communication from a member of our team if you are not selected for a particular role after the interview process has concluded).
Once you've accepted an offer at Wabtec, you will receive additional details about your on-boarding experience, including access to our online portal to begin the on-boarding process. It’s important to know that a Wabtec offer of employment is contingent upon completing a successful pre-employment check. This process differs by country. Please don’t hesitate to ask your recruiter for details.
Resume and Interview Tips
Remember, the purpose of a resume isn’t to show everything you’ve ever done. It’s your opportunity to showcase your major accomplishments as they relate to the job in which you are applying.
- Align your skills and experience with the job description.
- Position the most relevant points first where they are most likely to be read.
- Be specific about projects you’ve worked on or managed. What was the outcome? How did you measure success? Highlight your achievements by including results and supporting data.
- If you're a recent university graduate or have limited work experience, include school-related projects or coursework that demonstrates relevant skills and knowledge.
- Update your resume frequently to ensure your most recent accomplishments are captured.
- Stand Out. Don’t hesitate to advertise what makes you unique. Showing who you really are is what could be the thing that sets you a part and gets you hired.
- Know Our Business. We encourage you to become familiar with our industry, the challenges we face, and the competitive landscapes in which we operate.
- Prepare Your Examples. We don’t just want to understand what you did, we also want to understand how you did it. Review the job description and identify examples of your work that best match the types of experiences we need for that position. Be sure that your examples have a clear situation, task, action and result.
- Interview Us. You're in the process of making a decision that will impact your career for many years to come. Take this opportunity to ask questions about how we develop our organization, people, and vision.
