To come along CMA CGM’s adventure, you will experience four recruitment steps:

1.   The application:

Choose your job:

The first step in the recruitment process is the choice and selection of the job. You will choose the job among the list of the open vacancies, according to your skills set and to your professional project and ambition.

2.  The screening step:

Once you have applied on our career site, your application will appear in the recruiter dashboard. The recruiter will read your resume and cover letter and will make a first selection of applications. If your resume is part of this list, you will step forward in the process. The recruiter will call you directly or send you an e-mail to fix a first phone call. There is no standard harmonization on the length and on the questions he or she will dedicate to this step.

If after this step you are selected, you will enter in the heart of the process: the interview. If you are not selected at this stage, you will receive an e-mail informing you that your application has not been chosen for this job.

3.  The interview step:

The interview step is divided into three moments:

  • With Talent Acquisition teams: you will meet physically with your recruiter during an average one-hour interview. If your recruiter is certified in “Thomas PPA”, he or she will ask you to pass a behavior test and will present you the results and discuss about your personality. If your fit is confirmed, you will be invited to meet with your future manager.


  • With the manager: this interview has the objective of presenting yourself to your future manager and daily interface in your job, and to offer you the possibility to ask concrete and specific questions. It may happen that the manager presents you other members of the team and sometimes other direct or transverse reports according to the scope of responsibility of the job.


  • With the HR Business Partner: the last interview is with the person which will be your Human Resources Business Partner, in charge of your onboarding, contract interactions, mobility steps, and current HR life during all your professional life within CMA CGM Group.


4.  The Job Offer step:

The job offer is the last step of your candidate experience. This includes receiving an offer letter stating the position’s title, the salary, the start date, and other terms and conditions of employment that are based on the agreement between the company and the candidate. It should be clear that you understand the terms of the offer. That’s why your recruiter will call you before sending the proposal to answer to all your questions.

If, after each stage of the process, your application is not selected for pursuing the recruitment, your recruiter will provide you a response. You will receive a questionnaire from Happy Candidates in which you can share and evaluate your candidate experience.
