Our products are very popular. And to make sure it stays this way, we need to think ahead ;-) and expand our team.
The world evolves around workwear in the pretty Kinzigtal region between Frankfurt a.M. and Fulda – well, that’s how we see it ;-).
We have projects in the pipeline that are bound to be just what you are looking for, especially in the fields of IT, development and design.
Are you looking for a job for the rest of your life, or simply a stepping stone for something completely new? Apply in the classic manner or simply on the off-chance. Scared of commitment? No problem – we’ll take you on as a freelancer.
What else? Of course…:
Early Bird Yoga, Zumba in your break or Hot Stone for lunch? More the bodybuilding type? We have something for you, too. Culinary style from cool cafés to pop-up pizzeria with ingredients from the garden of Eden – our world is different, simply ‘workwear wonderful’. We live our slogan ‘Enjoy work’.
You think we are exaggerating? Honestly, it’s lots of fun to work at our company.
Psssst: You know someone who knows someone – you know what we mean. Pass it on."
It doesn't get better than this. Directly adjacent to the A66 and close to Frankfurt a.M., the world is our oyster – both nationwide and international. We have the largest German airport right on our doorstep, but also plenty of green oases to relax in. You will love it. :)
Logistics covers returns, the warehouse and incoming and outgoing goods. Our team from returns works on return shipments and complaints, registering these in the system and ensuring that returned goods are stored in a reliable manner. Our responsible warehouse team combines and correctly allocates products in individual packages and prepares them for shipping.
Securing customer satisfaction is this team’s main task. They are constantly in contact with the customer and ensure that they receive products which are perfectly crafted to suit their needs. In order to achieve this, they discuss requirements via telephone or email, create offers or work on the individual finishing of the purchased textiles. Our employees in Customer Service are very familiar with our goods and receive regular product training.
In the House & Co team, employees are responsible for welcoming our visitors and hosting business partners during meetings.
They also run the e.s.Café, preparing fresh coffee and tea for employees during breaks, providing support with decoration, and are also responsible for cleaning throughout the whole company.
The Personnel team is the point of contact for all employees. As well as running seminars, workshops and training sessions, they also supervise training and internships and manage applicants to the company. Time observation for payroll and health management for employees also form part of the Personnel team’s duties.
Store management and store conception form two tasks designated to our retail team. The employees are contacts for all organisational and design-related processes in our workwearstores®. They test to see which products are most in demand with customers and ensure that there is always enough product on site. The team is also responsible for ensuring that our concept is implemented in all workwearstores® in the same way.
The attractive marketing of our brands and products via our catalogue, website and mailing is an important factor. With the aim of informing existing customers about new products and gaining new customers, the teams analyse, plan and check our different markets and are always developing new designs – online and offline.
Our KITA is a day-care centre and a real paradise for the little ones in a workwear look. The lovingly decorated rooms offers many things for the kids to discover, and they can also run and play outside in the large garden. The KITA can accommodate 11 children below the age of 3. We also cooperate with a local day-care centre for older children. We are ready. The kids can come.
The internal and external communication processes are controlled by our PR department. From press releases to creating brochures and information for customers and employees, to formulating texts for the engelbert strauss website – the PR team ensures that our company has a uniform appearance both on and offline.
Our team in Purchasing is responsible for sourcing materials and products. They also plan and control material requirements. The employees communicate with our international suppliers, manage prices and conditions and focus on developing our purchasing strategy. One of the tasks of Purchasing is coordinating the order quantities.
Our site in Biebergemünd lies right at the heart of Germany. Thanks to the direct connection to the A66, the rest of Germany is easily reachable.

Not really a person who likes to stand still? Good. Neither are we. There is always a lot going on here. All operative processes start with our Atrium & Logistics. Colleagues from the sales, customer service and logistics divisions share the Location Route 66 with co-workers from IT, accounting and HR departments.
The campus which has been occupied since 2015 at our site near Frankfurt a.M. is a combination of unique open rooms and sophisticated architecture.

1994 – A milestone in the company’s history. The Atrium & Logistics were specifically built right next to the A66 motorway. The existing building directly next to the campus is the heart of the company. All operative processes are steered from here. Most of the building is occupied by the sales, the customer service and logistics divisions – the remaining offices belong to the colleagues in the IT, accounting and HR departments.
1,200 employees work in close proximity. This makes central decision-making that much easier.

We get asked a lot of questions about the application process.
The most frequently asked questions are listed below.
How do I know if an advertised vacancy is still available?
All jobs listed in our vacancy portal are still available. We update this portal every day.
I have already applied once. Can I try again?
If at first you don't succeed……. Of course you can apply again. That is no problem at all.
I really like the look of two jobs. What should I do?
It is of course possible to apply for several different positions. Simply write down the jobs you are interested in on your application, preferably on the front sheet and in the reference line of your letter. We will then check your application together with the departments.
How should I submit my application?
There are lots of options. You can submit your application quickly by e-mail at email@example.com or in the classic way by post to the following address: engelbert strauss GmbH & Co. KG, HR Team, Frankfurter Straße 98-102, 63599 Biebergemünd. Anyone who prefers more personal contact is very welcome to come by in person to hand the application in at the reception desk.
What should the application contain?
It's up to you really. ‘Perfectionists’ are very welcome to enclose all their documents in the traditional way. ‘Creative’ characters can submit whatever they have to hand. If we are interested in an applicant and require more information, we will simply ask.
I have submitted my application – what now?
As soon as we receive your application, we send you confirmation of receipt, either by e-mail or post. Then our HR team and the relevant department check the application thoroughly. This takes time. We want to meet all those who make an impression – in a video interview, in a telephone interview or in a face-to-face interview.
What is a time-delayed video interview?
This allows us to get to know applicants better by video before the personal interview. It also gives applicants the opportunity to give their written applications a personal touch and provide more information about themselves. Be it at home on the sofa or outside in the garden, each applicant can decide when and where the interview should be recorded.
How does the video interview work?
It's very easy: We will send the applicant an e-mail link for the video portal, which needs to be opened. First of all, the applicant has time to familiarise himself/herself with the tool and can practice answering selected questions and watch the recording. The answers to the exercise questions are not saved or sent to us. The applicant then decides himself/herself when to start with the real recording. The applicant must answer various questions about himself/herself, professional experience and the vacancy within a defined time. The answers cannot be deleted or repeated in the final interview. Then the interview is submitted via a mouse-click.
The video portal isn't working. What should I do?
If this doesn't work, contact our technical support at firstname.lastname@example.org.
When will I hear back from you?
We will either invite you for an interview or send you a rejection within 3 weeks. If we need any longer than this, please do not hesitate to call us on 0 60 50 / 97 10 303 to ask about the status of your application.
Sent in an application but haven't heard anything yet?
It may be that the spam program picked it up. If you do not receive an e-mail from us, please call us and ask on 0 60 50 / 97 10 303 and we'll be happy to help.
Any more questions?
You can reach the HR team on 0 60 50 / 97 10 303 or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. Just contact us and we'll be happy to help you.
