The contents of the training:

For industrial salespersons, we have a flexible schedule for the training, i.e. there is no fixed sequence of when you learn which subjects. Every apprentice is guaranteed to become familiar with all relevant divisions of the company with their respective tasks and activities – only the succession of your path through the company may be different.

The finance department deals with invoicing of costs and services, the purchase of goods and work equipment and of course accounting. In the legal department, for example, you will learn about the various legal forms and structures of companies with their requirements and obligations. In the marketing department, you will deal with corporate communications such as advertising, PR, sales promotion and the like. Presentation techniques also play a role in this context. And in the human resources department, you will learn everything you need to know about employees, advanced trainings and the promotion of young talent.

In addition to theory, you will experience the real world of everyday life in all departments and you will become familiar with the tasks and challenges you have to deal with and how great it feels when a project is successfully completed.

In the second year of training, you will take an intermediate examination. In the third year, you will work on a slightly more extensive technical task on a specific subject are, which you will discuss individually with your trainer. Once you have completed all this successfully and had fun in the process, the only thing waiting for you is the final exam, for which we will prepare you well.

All roads lead to Rome - or do they: How do I find my dream job?

As varied as our training programs are, the path between graduation and starting training is often just as varied. Some of them already know in their school days exactly which profession their heart beats for. It may so happen that during a study course or an apprenticeship, you find out that you are not on the right track and that you are reorienting yourself. Or you probably even have a degree in your pocket and feel like you haven't reached the end yet. Every path is the right one, if you follow your gut feeling. Here, you can see what experiences our apprentices have gathered:

Stacy had concrete ideas for what she wanted to do after completing school: Become a teacher. But while studying in Greifswald, she missed her family and home so much that the need for a new plan arose. Her friends were already training to become industrial clerks and Stacy realized that this job would also suit her well. She got the apprenticeship position she liked at SWISS KRONO in Heiligengrabe: In a large company with many opportunities for further qualification even after the apprenticeship.

Together through the apprenticeship

If you add up all apprenticeship years and training occupations, a total of 45 apprentices are learning at our site. This is a big team and in the truest sense of the word, too. In addition to joint activities and annual excursions, the individual trainees rely on each other every day in their various training occupations. The work processes run hand in hand, which is why it is all the more important to know and understand one another:

The red warning signal of the floor production plant lights up. Machine and system operator Elias detects a fault in the system – a sensor holder is defective He discusses the further course of action together with the industrial mechanic Lukas and the electronics technician for industrial engineering Leon.
Industrial mechanic Lukas takes the sensor holder to the workshop to repair it. He then attaches it to the system and hands it over to Leon. The electronics technician for industrial engineering now adjusts the sensor correctly using a laser. After the machine and system operator restarts production, industrial management assistant Luzie can be sure that the ordered laminate is produced as planned and loaded onto the truck. She transmits her goods transport to Lukas, specialist for warehouse logistics. He can load the order and send it on its way to the customer.
