Industrial Management Assistant, 1st Year Vocational Training, Location Neu-Isenburg
- What made you decide to do your vocational training at Lorenz Snack-World?
I wanted to do my vocational training at a large and successful company – Lorenz Snack-World was a perfect fit. Through the interview, I gained a very positive impression of the company and of the training on offer and, up to now, I can truly say that I made the right decision.
- Which areas have you gotten to know so far and what projects or larger tasks have you worked on?
Already over the first 6 months at Lorenz Snack-World, I have gotten to know the HR department and Procurement as well as having spent 4 weeks in Production at the plant in Neunburg vorm Wald. From the beginning, a lot of trust was put in me and I was treated as a true team member. In the HR department, for example, I was placed in charge of developing a new assessment form. In the procurement department as well, I was integrated into daily business and I had tasks like checking prices with suppliers or negotiating smaller contracts.
- What have you learnt during your training, what has left an impression on you? The industrial management training is so diverse and you learn different things in each new department. Take the different working methods that you can apply for example - at the beginning of my training I took part in a MS Office training and now I can apply those programs better. After my first two months, I was sent to the factory in Neunburg vorm Wald. The huge machines and the production hall were very impressive – especially because usually you know the end product but don’t really think about all the steps involved to produce it.
- Would you recommend the vocational training at Lorenz Snack-World? What would you tell your friends is the reason for starting a training at the Lorenz Snack-World?
I would definitely recommend the vocational training at Lorenz Snack-World because I am happy here with the knowledge that I am receiving very good training. I would tell my friends that I am learning a lot through the training and that this is good preparation for a later career. The people I work with are always there to help and that gives me confidence while I’m working and makes it more fun.
