WORKING DURING COVID-19

How can I apply?

In our job portal you will find all vacancies of the PAYBACK GROUP. There you can apply directly to us.

How do I know if my application has arrived?

We register your application in our system and will always give you a written feedback about the receipt of your application.

What happens after I submit my application?

As soon as we receive your application, we compare your documents with the job requirements and check whether we are a good match. You will receive initial feedback or an invitation to a video call to get to know each other by phone or e-mail.

What does the first personal contact look like?

Due to the current Covid-19 situation, we conduct all interviews remotely via telephone or video interview. Two to three colleagues from the relevant specialist department will be waiting for you there. If you convince us in this interview, we will plan another video interview with you to deepen the discussions.

What happens after the first interview?

Depending on the position and the general conditions, the further procedure can be quite different. We use a diverse range of selection procedures: This can be a further specialist interview, the presentation of personal work samples or a full-day assessment center. The selection procedure is always tailored to the respective requirement profile from the specialist areas. We conduct all interviews professionally and provide you with rapid feedback.

BENEFITS & COVID-19

We place high demands on our colleagues. Therefore we believe that personal commitment and performance must be rewarded accordingly.

You are a top employee, perform your tasks with motivation and thus contribute to the lasting success of our company. We are higly aware that motivation is not a given - especially in the current situation. That's why we support you in many areas.

BENEFITS

The dining room

Before Covid-19: In our legendary canteen, Italian cuisine at its best is the order of the day. Every day, you can choose between meat, fish and pasta dishes, or put together your own menu of delicious salads, soup and fresh antipasti. As a PAYBACK GROUP employee, you can have lunch here at very reasonable prices and exchange ideas with colleagues from all areas of the Group. A "mystery lunch" is a great way to get to know colleagues from other areas.

Current situation:
All colleagues who currently choose to work from the office receive a free lunch in our EATING ROOM. Around our location there are many opportunities to eat outside and even (at a distance) together. The "Mystery-Coffee" is still available virtually and can of course be super used for "Coffee-Breaks" or "Walk-and-Talks".

The gaming room

Before Covid-19: Here you can compete with colleagues at table tennis or foosball during creative breaks. As a company with a digital focus, you can't miss the game console and legendary slot machines. A quick dry dip in the ball pool is guaranteed to get your mind fresh and remind you every day that working at PAYBACK GROUP is also a lot of fun.

Current situation:
Unfortunately, our GAME ROOM has to remain closed until further notice. However, we won't let that spoil the fun ...

COMPANY PENSION PLAN

PAYBACK GROUP offers you individual advice and attractive models for salary conversion. Whether it's direct insurance or a pension fund, the PAYBACK GROUP offers you a wide range of options for private pension provision.

The gym

Before Covid-19: Our in-house fitness studio is open for you around the clock, 7 days a week. With a balanced course program and the latest training equipment, our trainers ensure that your personal fitness is not neglected. As a PAYBACK GROUP employee, all offers are available to you for a low monthly fee. In addition, our professional trainers offer you massages and physiotherapeutic services.

Current situation:
We have adapted directly to the new situation and created the TURNHALLE 2.0. Here, all colleagues of the PAYBACK GROUP can take advantage of offers ranging from "HIT", to "Bauch Beine Po", "Yoga" and "Ernährungskursen" - and all of this is even free of charge!

SPEAKING OF FUN ...

Before Covid-19: At the Friday Get Together starting at 5:00 p.m., you can ring in the weekend together with colleagues in a relaxed way. Drinks and lots of nice colleagues from all areas are available for conversations, extended games of table tennis and table football!
And that's not all! We also like to celebrate our successes - for example at the summer party, our legendary Christmas party or at the joint ski weekend in the Kitzb√ľhel Alps.

Current situation:
We don't let Covid-19 spoil our celebrations and just meet virtually for the Friday Get Together! Everything else will be made up for as soon as it is possible again.

Family service

Our partners offer you a wide range of services so that work and family can harmonize as well as possible. Via the care.com platform, you can search for support from professional household help, childcare, senior care and pet care from our partner free of charge.

IN OUR EMPLOYEE KITCHENS ...

coffee, milk, tea and water are available for you free of charge. Your own drinks or food will find plenty of space in the refrigerators. 

Current situation:
For all colleagues who decide to come to the office, this offer is of course still available! For a coffee break, we have also set up virtual coffee kitchens, where everyone can meet informally for a little chat - (almost) just like before Covid-19!

REGULAR AND CHANGING OFFERS FOR COLLEAGUES

These range from discounted online offers to low-cost vehicle and bicycle leasing.

INFORMATION ON THE HANDLING OF COVID-19

What is everyday working life like at the PAYBACK GROUP?

At the moment, the entire PAYBACK GROUP is applying the "WFH" - Working from Home. Whereby "Anywhere" refers to anywhere in Germany and can of course also be in our office. Due to the current situation, we recommend that all colleagues work from home. To support this, our colleagues can borrow office equipment.

All meetings are held virtually and processes are designed digitally. Many digital innovations that were not planned until later were implemented promptly to shorten working distances and enable collaboration during this extraordinary time.

We continue to monitor the situation closely and adhere to recommended measures. On a day-to-day basis, we rely on increased communication to keep all colleagues up to date on current developments. It is important to us to maintain a constant exchange with each other and also to find out, for example through regular surveys, how each individual is coping with the current situation.

How do we support our colleagues? Parents, for example.

The closure of schools, kindergartens and daycare centers, which unfortunately also affects our company KiTa (KINDERZIMMER), presents parents in particular with a special challenge. As the PAYBACK GROUP, we are aware that it is therefore not always possible for many colleagues to work continuously and be available during core working hours.

For this reason, working hours can be made up outside of typical office hours by agreement within the team.  If this is not possible, we offer the option of flexibly and unbureaucratically reducing working hours or applying for leave.

 

How is cohesion fostered during this difficult time?

With our free offers in the TURNHALLE as well as in the ESSZIMMER, our employee app BUBBLE and more and more creative ideas from our colleagues (walk-and-talk, theme nights, baking together, game nights and much more) we keep the community together and continue to live our PAYBACK GROUP spirit.
