  • Use one of the following browsers: Internet Explorer (10.0 or newer), Firefox (18.0 or newer), Apple Safari (6.0 or newer) or Google Chrome
  • Disable the pop-up blocker

I have forgotten my user name and password or the system is telling me they are incorrect, what can I do?

Your user name is the e-mail address you registered with. The password was chosen by you during your registration. If you can't remember your password please click here to request a new one. It will be sent to your e-mail address and is valid for 7 days. If you request a new password, please delete the cookies before you insert the new password.

I cannot log in because of too many wrong attempts, what can I do?

In this case, please contact or the person indicated in the job posting. In order to unlock your profile, we need the e-mail address which you have used for registration.

Please be aware that you cannot send applications to the e-mail address provided above.

My e-mail address is already reserved, even though I've never applied or registered online with EGGER. What do I do now?

Your e-mail address has already been used when you have applied earlier with this e-mail address via our application system. This is also the case when you have sent an application via e-mail or mail and indicated this address. It has already been used since our HR department has entered your application manually. Please request a new password here and edit your profile or submit a new application in this area. We look forward to your application.

I click on "to the job search" or on "Apply" and the window does not open. Which settings do I have to change?

A new window opens automatically if you click on "To job search" or "Apply" provided that you have deactivated the pop-up blocker. Please deactivate your pop-up blocker and try again.

What do I need to know if the system crashes before I complete my application? Your data is not lost!

The data you enter is saved until the last click on "Next Step". Please log back in to complete your application. However, in order to log in again, you must create a new password, because the password you received in the registration confirmation would only have become active upon "sending" your application. Request your password here again.

Which documents should I prepare in advance? What do I need to know when uploading my documents?

You can upload the following documents during the application process: letter, reference letters and references, photo, CV, certificates and complete application files.
The following file formats are allowed: .doc, .docx, .gif, .jpg, .pdf. The size per file is limited to 10 MB. Please upload not more than 10 documents. Where possible, we prefer one PDF file containing all your documents.

Has my application arrived?

After having sent the application you get an e-mail with a confirmation of receipt. When you have completed the application process, you can have an insight into your data.

How can I edit my application profile after I have submitted it?

In your existing profile you can verify the status of your application. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can always find the relevant contact person for each specific vacancy in the footnote of the job advert. Of course, we will keep you informed during the entire recruitment process and about further steps – individual contact with you is very important to us.

Following a rejection, is my application still being considered for other available positions?

If you choose to release your profile, you will have been registered for our talent pool, which means that you can be considered and contacted for job opportunities which match your profile in the future. If you complete an application for a job posting and are only interested in this position, you do not need to release your profile. In case of speculative applications, however, this release is important. If you do not wish this, you can always block or delete your profile.

How can I edit my existing applicant profile afterwards?

Via Edit existing profile, you may keep your profile up to date, add information, or upload additional documents, such as transcripts and other documentation.

Please log in to your existing profile with your user name and password. When you log in for the first time, you will be asked to change your password. The password has to contain at least 8 characters including at least one capital letter and one number.

When updating your information please remember that if you want to change your education, work experience or qualifications, you must first highlight the line in order to change it.
