First, your Supervisor will get in touch with you to provide you with all the necessary details for your start. Second, your Supervisor will assign a Buddy to you. Your Buddy will also reach out to you in order to get to know you prior to your start. In the meantime, the Team Assistant will take care of your IT equipments so that you are all set up.
CF A offers a CF A University (training week) for all our employees worldwide at the end of each calendar year. There are also regional summits (3 days) which ususally take place in the third quarter of the Siemens fiscal year in the different CF A hubs. You will receive invitations to those events via e-mail.

The first time you join Siemens, we are obliged to check the identity of our new employees for salary purposes. If the ID check is not completed in time, your salary payment process cannot be initiated. Therefore, this step is key on your first day with us! The identity check will be conducted by your Supervisor on your first day. Please make sure to bring your original identity document (e.g. passport) with you and show it to your Supervisor. Your Supervisor will take all necessary steps to make sure the ID check is completed.
Depending if you relocate nationally, internationally or intercontinentally, we will provide you with additional support (e.g. Global Business Services, relocation agencies etc.). In case of questions, please get in touch with the responsible recruiter, who will provide you with all relevant information, guide you through the process and refer you to the appropriate point of contact for your request.
