Frequently Asked Questions

As an employee you have a work agreement/contract with your employer in which your wage will be regulated. This is regulated in Austria’s collective labour agreement for the tourism and catering service industry.

The wage depends on your qualification, skills, knowledge, working hours (40/48 hours), working days (5/6 days)

There is a legal minimum wage which is quite attractive.

For example: A cook with professional training receives a minimum wage of € 1.575 (for 40 hours/week) plus two bonus payments (holiday compensation and Christmas bonus) plus insurance.

We are always accepting applications. Apply here or visit our Infowebinar for more information.

After reviewing your application, we will invite you to a job interview (online or on-site) to discuss your career and opportunities with ATRACT.

Above all, you should be motivated and willing to work abroad!

We are looking for motivated people who like to develop professionally and personally and see their future in tourism and leisure industry.

Basic knowledge of German is definitely an advantage. If you do not speak German, English B1 Level is required.

Different positions require different levels of experience and education. Consult with your ATRACT representative during the interview process.

Before the seasons (winter/summer) we organize several camps that prepare you for the working world in Austria. Before the camp we provide an online Zoom meeting with the workshop “Living and Working in Tourism” and online German classes.

For the training camp in Tyrol, we meet in one of our member hotels (Sunday to Friday). ATRACT will cover 90% of the costs of the training camp (workshops, German courses, training sessions, etc.), including accommodation and meals.

In the camp we simulate the workflow (for kitchen, service, housekeeping) of the hotels in Austria and give you an insight into the life in Austria in a workshop about integration and personality.

Upon successful completion, you will receive a certificate and become part of the ATRACT community and will be matched to one of our member hotels for your first job in Austria.

German is very important for your life and work in Austria and speaking German makes everything much easier. You don’t have to speak German at the beginning, but basic knowledge of English (A2/B1 Level) is required. We can also switch to English in conversations, so you understand everything. You will get access to online German courses and live courses in the training camps. German courses are also offered in many companies, but it is important that you take care of the language acquisition yourself. We provide tools, but you have to use them!

ATRACT members provide private accommodation and meals for their employees. Some of the accommodations have their own cooking facilities.

ATRACT has different member hotels located in Austria, south tyrol and Bavaria and we are expanding continously. The hotels are of different types, from the small mountain guesthouse to the bigger wellness hotels. Some employ less than ten employees, some more than 50. We make sure you find the right employer for you.

Our crew members are part of the ATRACT community and form a network. It is important to us to have a lively exchange, feedback and help so that every new applicant finds a connection easily. Community events keep everyone in touch and experience the country in a variety of ways. Whether at the Christmas market or on a trip to the forest – the shared experience is important.
