Fragen zur Bewerbung



To make sure your application is well received...
we have compiled some information for your application to Motel One.

You will find an overview of our job advertisements for our hotels under current vacancies/jobs where the actual vacancies are listed according to sectors or hotels.

Please apply online. You will find the contact person for you application in the job advertisement. 

What is the correct way to apply?

The recruitment process at motel one is decentralized, that means that if you apply for a certain job offer at one of our hotels, your contact person would be the Hotel Manager or Assistant Manager (contact person is always mentioned in the job add), and not Human Resources.

If you find a suitable job in our job list, please fill in the online application form in order to apply. After submitting your application you will receive an automatic acknowledgement of receipt.

Following this, we will carefully review your application and get back to you as soon as possible.

We prefer receiving applications via our Online application system, as we can then answer your application faster and more efficiently. If you still prefer sending your application offline via post, please direct your application to the responsible hotel.
