CANDIDATE SELECTION, INTERVIEWS AND FEEDBACK
How do I find out about current vacancies and submit my CV?
The list of our current vacancies may be found at our partner’s HeadHunter web site. Just click on the «Respond» button and your CV will be submitted to our HR managers. Even if there are no current vacancies at UPECO that you are interested in, you may send us
your CV — we will review it and put you on the list of possible candidates.
When and how do I get feedback on my CV?
It takes us 2-5 working days to review your CV and make a decision (the exact period depends on the level and complexity of the job). However, you can always get in touch with the HR department at UPECO to find out if your CV has undergone review.
How long is the interview?
The interview usually takes about an hour, but there are no strict timeframes.
When do I get feedback after the interview at the company?
Our HR manager will give you all the necessary information during the interview. Usually it takes up to one week to make a decision.
Will I get any feedback in case of a negative decision?
Yes, we will give you feedback in any case.
If I haven’t been selected for a particular vacancy, may I compete for another?
Certainly. Different positions and projects at the company require different professional skills. If you have not fulfilled some criteria for one position, we may consider you as a possible candidate for another project.
How long does the recruitment process take? Who will be interviewing me?
We are very careful in the selection and assessment of candidates, therefore the recruitment process consists of several stages (usually from 2 to 5 depending on the complexity of the position and job duties). For more details see Section «Your way to UPECO»
Can I go through several selection stages in a day?
Yes. It is possible. We try to combine interview stages to minimize the number of our candidate’s visits to the office and to facilitate the decision making process.
WHAT WE EXPECT FROM CANDIDATES
Who is an ideal candidate?
The UPECO team unites open-minded, independent and responsible people who strive to grow, have the main competencies the company requires and share our values.
Which cities may candidates come from?
We welcome candidates from different regions of Russia, and from countries where we have our representative offices.
I do not have any professional experience. Do I have a chance to get a job at your company?
We are looking for people with different levels of experience. Young specialists are eligible for selection to entry-level positions with a possibility of further growth and development within the company.
May I apply for the position of a brand manager or junior brand manager at your company if I do not speak English?
In order to develop and launch products, UPECO maintains international cooperation and uses the global language of communication, therefore it is very important for employees involved in marketing to speak English. However, it is not an obligatory requirement, so feel free to send us your CV.
PROFESSIONAL AND CAREER OPPORTUNITIES AT THE COMPANY
I am interested in international business. Which advantages will I get working at your company?
UPECO is a Russian company with a western outlook on business practices. Working at our company is a much more interesting process than in any typical international enterprise. Our employees set and solve strategic tasks on their own, instead of locally implementing the strategy developed at the head office. Moreover, we work in a global environment so that our employees have real opportunities to gain global experience. Our employees regularly participate in international expos and conferences, and visit foreign manufacturing sites.
What training and development opportunities does your company provide?
We strive to provide as wide a range of opportunities as possible for professional and personal growth. We organise internal and external training programmes. For more details, see Section «Success through growth»
What career opportunities does your company have?
— this is the key principle of our company culture. The «More opportunities» principle applies in full to both professional and career development: we give you as many opportunities as possible, and the rest depends on your potential and enthusiasm. For more information, see Section «Success through growth»
MANAGEMENT, SALARIES AND EMPLOYMENT BENEFITS

How is the salary calculated?
The salary at UPECO consists of two parts: fixed and variable. We carry out surveys
and keep an eye on market trends and practices at other companies so that the income level at our company corresponds to the market wage rates. The amount of money you earn depends on the employee’s position level, professional skills and type of activity.
Does your company have employment benefits? What do they include?
