Application Process

How we do it

You want to become an apprentice right here at Douglas? Cool. We will take you through the application process, step by step.

  • First Step: Pre-Selection

    You handed in your application with all relevant and required documents? Great! We will check if you really didn’t forget anything because it’s important to us right from the start, to receive a complete application from you. Why you would like to be trained at Douglas as well as your school grades are of particular interest to us. A self-made video from you about yourself is a perfect way for us to get to know more about you as a person. But don’t overthink it and take all the time you need. After all, there’s no second chance to make a first impression. We from the NEXT GEN are all digital – so why not apply with a reel?
  • Short Trip: The Short-Term Internship

    The last obstacle will throw you into the deep waters. To make sure whether you have what it takes to become part of the NEXT GEN BEHIND BEAUTY, we would like to see you in action. During a 3-day internship you not only get an exact impression of everyday life at a Douglas store, but we get to know a lot about you, your personality and your behaviour in a team. After the internship we won’t let you wait for long and inform you as soon as possible, whether you successfully mastered the application process and you will finally be part of the NEXT GEN at Douglas.
  • Challenge Accepted: The Douglas Challenge

    The first obstacle is out of the way? Then it’s time for you to take part in the Douglas Challenge. But don’t worry, because we’re not asking for rocket science and you don’t even have to take a road trip – you can easily take the online test from the comfort of your home. The questions are centered around the everyday tasks in retail. Plus you will learn interesting facts about Douglas as a company and our store organisation.
