- The first thing you need to do is fill in a form on your computer or mobile. Enter your contact details and tell us about your work experience. You’ll also need to answer a few questions to show whether you’re suited for a job at Systembolaget.
- The next stage involves us inviting applicants who we think might be suitable for in-store work for an interview. The interview might be held in a store, or it might take place over the phone. Some of these interviews are held on a one-to-one basis, but we do also sometimes invite several applicants to attend a joint in-store meeting.
What happens at the interview?
During the interview, you will be given information about the job. You will be asked to talk about yourself and your experience in certain important areas, such as providing service. You will also be asked to talk about your experience of working as part of a team and of jobs that involve heavy lifting.
You will be given the chance to describe what you did in a particular situation and what you learned from the incident – both what went well and what you could have done differently. We are keen to know what you want, what you can do, and what your experiences have taught you.
To work for Systembolaget, you must be able to speak, understand, and read Swedish. You must also be able to hold a simple conversation in the sort of situations that most commonly arise during a working day. You must, additionally, be able to understand and read written information and instructions. This level of competence corresponds to level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) or level C in the SFI (Swedish For Immigrants) system.
At the end of the interview, we will ask you for the names of people who know you, e.g. from another workplace, and who can provide job references for you.
