Salzburg AG recently launched the Giving Energy-Living Energy program designed to increase the number of healthy lifestyle options at work.

Recruitment: Salzburg AG has no age limit for recruiting employees. The company seeks qualified, motivated employees, regardless of age.

Salzburg AG uses competence tests and assessment examinations to determine if a new employee will fit the company's needs. Upon hiring a new employee, Salzburg AG works to enrich the new hire's job experience and incorporate them into the team.
