Das sagen unsere Mitarbeiter
Katharina Franzen - Personnel Officer
After leaving school, I decided to do a two-year qualified apprenticeship as an industrial clerk. At KRAH, I was able to shorten my training period and thus start my professional life one year early. After being offered a job in scheduling following my apprenticeship, I applied internally for a vacant position in human resources because I realised during my apprenticeship that this was an area that I was also very interested in. There I started to take on tasks and more and more responsibility as a personnel clerk. At first, I focused on the training certificate so that I could take over the responsibility and organisation of the training in the commercial area. Then I completed a part-time advanced training course to become a certified human resources specialist so that I could develop personally and carry out the tasks of a human resources officer in the company.
I really appreciate the friendly working atmosphere here. During the changes within the company, I was as supported by my colleagues as I was during my part-time further training.
Janet Golombiewski - Staff organization
Continuing professional development
During my training as an industrial clerk, I gained extensive insight into all commercial areas of the company despite the shortened training period. I was particularly impressed by the family atmosphere in the company; every team immediately gave me a very friendly welcome! As I particularly liked the HR department, I decided to work in this area after my training. At KRAH, I can continue my education to become a human resources specialist while working and thus expand my specialist knowledge. After the further training, I can work as a personnel officer and take on more responsibility.
André Stahl, intern as part of "GapYear Südwestfalen
During a two-month internship at KRAH, I got to know different areas of the company. I enjoyed working in each area and did not expect to get to know so many people personally in such a short time after the internship. Every single employee I worked with was very nice and helpful and immediately saw me as a new employee and not as a trainee. That meant a lot to me personally. The employees of the company seemed like a big family to me, and they quickly accepted me into it.
