Application Process FAQS

When we receive your application, the recruiter and manager read your CV and cover letter. The manager decides whether to invite you for a first interview and informs the recruiter. You receive an invitation for a first interview from our HR support or recruiter. After this interview, the recruiter and manager discuss the next steps. You will be invited for a second interview if there is a positive outcome.
In some cases, you will also be asked to take an assessment. If we decide to offer you the job, the recruiter will contact you to make an offer. Once you have accepted the offer, we will start the screening and administrative processes to get you started at OMRON.

We aim to complete the process within five weeks (from job application to job offer). As you will understand, this will depend on your availability, that of the manager and other people involved in the process. After that, completing the screening process and drawing up your contract takes another 2-3 weeks.

We understand that you are keen to know what's happening with your application, but we, of course, have to treat everyone's application in the same way. This is why you can expect a response no later than two weeks from the closing date for applications. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the recruiter mentioned in the vacancy text.

We aim to ensure all local candidates are considered during the application process. However, we also consider candidates from around the world and may offer sponsorship for qualified candidates based on the need of the company, market conditions and location of the position.

Working at OMRON and Practicalities FAQS

We are committed to diversity and inclusion and have initiatives to promote a diverse and equitable workplace. Learn more about our diversity efforts on our website.

Yes, our company recognizes the importance of flexibility in today's work environment, and we offer hybrid work options to our employees. Our typical hybrid work schedule is designed to provide a balance between in-office and remote work. The specifics of each employee's hybrid schedule may vary based on their role, team, and individual preferences.

Our goal is to create a work environment that allows employees to choose the work location that best suits their needs while ensuring that we maintain effective communication and collaboration across the organization. We encourage open communication between managers and team members to tailor hybrid work arrangements to individual and team requirements.

It's important to note that not all functions or departments within our organization may be able to adopt a hybrid work model. The suitability of hybrid work varies depending on the nature of the work and specific job requirements. In some cases, functions or departments that require continuous on-site presence, such as roles in manufacturing, laboratory research, or client-facing positions, may not be eligible for hybrid work due to the critical need for in-person interaction, access to specific equipment, or the nature of the tasks involved.

If you have questions about the eligibility of a specific role or department for hybrid work, we encourage you to reach out to our HR department or refer to our official company policies for further information. We are always looking for ways to accommodate employee needs while maintaining our commitment to business excellence.
