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.

Mar­lon Wol­ters com­men­ced trai­ning to beco­me an Indus­tri­al Mecha­nic last sum­mer and expec­ts to qua­li­fy in Janu­a­ry of 2018.

Kim Karotki: Mr Wol­ters, why did you deci­de to train to be an Indus­tri­al Mecha­nic?

Mar­lon Wol­ters: I had done an internship in this line of work and real­ly enjoy­ed it.

Kim Karotki: What brought you to Klasmann-Deilmann?

Mar­lon Wol­ters: I was loo­king for a voca­tio­nal trai­ning place online and found Klasmann-Deilmann. The com­pa­ny made a gre­at over­all impres­si­on on me strai­ght away, so I app­lied.

Kim Karotki: What goes through your mind when you come to work?

Mar­lon Wol­ters: I often ask mys­elf what chal­len­ges might await me today. My work is usual­ly very sti­mu­la­ting.

Vera Höl­scher has been trai­ning to be a Busi­ness Admi­nis­tra­tor for Mar­ke­ting Com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons sin­ce the sum­mer of 2014. She recent­ly pas­sed her inter­me­dia­te exams.

Kim Karotki: Ms Höl­scher, what in par­ti­cu­lar do you like about Klasmann-Deilmann?

Vera Höl­scher: I real­ly appre­cia­te how well the com­pa­ny inte­gra­tes new recruits and how hel­pful ever­yo­ne is – wha­te­ver you might need assi­s­tan­ce with.

Kim Karotki: What do you think your ver­dict will be when your trai­ning is over?

Vera Höl­scher: I expect I’ll look back on my trai­ning here with hap­py memo­ries – howe­ver much the­re is to do, you can always sha­re a laugh. And I’ve found some gre­at col­leagues here.

Kim Karotki: What has been your most memo­r­able expe­ri­ence so far?

Vera Höl­scher: The annu­al Inter­na­tio­nal Plant Fair in Essen – that real­ly was unf­or­gett­able. And it was inte­res­ting to see Klasmann-Deilmann from a qui­te dif­fe­rent point of view, to see the big­ger pic­tu­re and gain a broa­der per­spec­tive on one’s day-to-day work.

Niklas Albers has alrea­dy been trai­ned as an Indus­tri­al Busi­ness Admi­nis­tra­tor at Klasmann-Deilmann and, in the sum­mer of 2014, began a com­bi­ned voca­tio­nal trai­ning und degree pro­gram­me. This is due for com­ple­ti­on in the sum­mer of 2017.

Kim Karotki: Mr Albers, you stay­ed on at Klasmann-Deilmann after your trai­ning. Why?

Niklas Albers: I wan­ted to deve­lop mys­elf pro­fes­sio­nal­ly by doing a degree. Klasmann-Deilmann gave me the opti­on of a com­bi­ned voca­tio­nal trai­ning und degree pro­gram­me.

Kim Karotki: What do you like most about your day-to-day work?

Niklas Albers: The fact that it’s so varied. I enjoy the high­ly effec­tive com­bi­na­ti­on of theo­ry and prac­tice, and expect to con­ti­nue to face sti­mu­la­ting chal­len­ges into the future.

Kim Karotki: And how will your future look when you’ve com­ple­ted your stu­dies?

Niklas Albers: My first choice would be to con­ti­nue to work at Klasmann-Deilmann.
