Process and Project Engineer for Steam Power plants-Vorstellungsgespräch

Anonymer Bewerber im Vorstellungsgespräch in Köln
Kein Angebot
Negative Erfahrung


Ich habe mich über eine Vermittlungsagentur beworben. Vorstellungsgespräch absolviert bei Tractebel (Köln).


The worst ever experience I have come across. This is the worst company to work for. I work in Germany and had gone for an interview discussion for possible work-profiles that they could have to suit my earlier several years of experience.

Completely racist management. I was told by one of their Heads that they prefer taking 'German looking or European looking' people. I am brown skinned. Off-course, he meant that I don't 'look white' enough as he used the word 'looking'. He said that they have many customers in Asia and Africa and the customers like to interact with German/European 'looking' people during meetings and that is how they get most of their business and hence I should 'understand' their problem. He said that their clients from Asia and Africa don't understand who is a pure German and who is a European Non German and hence, they consider all European 'looking' people as Germans. They employ people non-European 'looking' people only and only if they have no other option.
This tells a lot about the old thinking way in which the company is run and I doubt the future of such a company. If a company requires German 'looking' people to prove its worth infront of the clients, I can imagine the rest.

My suggestion to the management would be - Please grow up and don't use such cheap and traditionally old strategies to get business from customers. It is sad to see a man at such a high position say that. There are better ways of getting business by means of best quality work, good soft skills and creating a good brand name. Management level people are supposed to be visionaries and set new trends (and Not be lame followers and follow some non-sense trends). Please stop calling yourself a 'International' Company hereafter. Even if your strategy might be getting business for you practically, it is NOT a good way to get business.
All this while when the Head was saying all this to me, the HR was just standing nearby and watching the drama with a smile.

Dear applicant,

We have read your feedback on glassdoor regarding a short get-together you had with representatives of Lahmeyer International on a recruiting day in Cologne while having lunch.

We regret very much that you got the impression that foreign nationalities are not welcome in our company. As you can see from our webpage our projects take place mainly abroad in Russia and CIS, Central Asia, Middle East, Turkey and East Africa.

About 10% of our engineers in Bad Vilbel are non-Germans and are highly appreciated in our international projects. In our headquarters we employ more than 30 foreign nationalities with a variety of skin colours.

The get-together during lunch most probably did not give you enough opportunity to explain all your qualifications. Therefore, we would like to invite you to a face to face interview in our headquarters in Bad Vilbel. From our side we will point out the competencies we need according to our customers’ requirements. As we are an independent provider for engineering services our focus is on offering suitable knowhow to our customers. Finally, both sides should have a full picture of each other and should be able to decide how to proceed.

We kindly ask you to get in touch with us. Please send an email to with your contact details. Please suggest a selection of dates when it will be convenient for you to meet up with us at our headquarters in Bad Vilbel.

We are looking forward to hearing back from you soon.

Best regards,

Cornelia Peters
