“Klasmann-Deilmann integrates its new recruits well.”

So how are the young new recruits doing at Klasmann-Deilmann? We briefly interviewed three young people aged between 19 and 23, asking them three questions each – for example, how they came to be at Klasmann-Deilmann, what their day-to-day work is like and what their hopes are for the future. Two are trainees on vocational training schemes, and one has gone on to do a degree after such training.
