Jan-Pascale, Apprentice / Vocational Training at Lorenz Snack-World
Industrial Mechanic, 3rd Year Vocational Training, Location Hankensbuettel
- What made you decide to do your vocational training at Lorenz Snack-World?
I had always wanted to be a mechanic but then I decided to become an industrial mechanic because there’s more you can do with that. I came to Lorenz Snack-World through a relative that also works here. He told me all about the company and it made a good impression on me. What was great was that they got back to me very quickly – within two weeks!
- Which areas have you gotten to know so far and what projects or larger tasks have you worked on?
First you get a basic training in filing, drilling, spinning, milling, welding and burning. In addition, you spend a lot of time in the production halls in order to get to know the production process. Towards the end of my training I was given first small tasks in production, for example the connection of a pump. We prepared ourselves thoroughly – in practice as well as in theory – for the mid-term exam. We were encouraged to ask the trainers whenever we had questions. After the mid-term exam, I was given more tasks in production. For a while now I have been doing accompanying shift work through which we trainees really gain production experience and are fully integrated into daily work. I also have tasks to complete on my own – I am in charge of the phone line where all the production requests come in and call the assistants for support only when I don’t know the answer to something.
- What have you learnt during your training, what has left an impression on you?
The diversity has impressed me! Of course there are a lot of repetitions in the basic training work, but there is always something new in production. And there are so many development opportunities.
- Would you recommend the vocational training at Lorenz Snack-World?
Yes – for sure!
- What would you tell your friends is the reason for starting a training at the Lorenz Snack-World?
At Lorenz you get a good, comprehensive training and are entrusted with various tasks. You get to know the production process in a way you wouldn’t as a simple “snack consumer”. And the atmosphere at work is also very good.
