We asked – an interview with our apprentices:
The working day of a vPOOL apprentice
As apprentices at vPOOL, we can learn the trades of office management or forwarding and logistics services. The training takes place over a standard three-year period, during which time, our experiences in both the company and trade school provide us with an outstanding foundation for working life. At vPOOL, we spend time in a wide variety of departments during our training, from customer service to case management and bookkeeping. Our focus changes depending on our progress and the occupation for which we’re being trained. In each department, we start out with training from experienced employees and then, little by little, we can start taking on our own tasks. This prepares us for our start in the trade, and we’re happy to be able to help out.
Challenges – What challenges have you faced?
One major challenge during training is figuring out how to balance school and work. After a day at work, sometimes your motivation to study hard at school is strong, sometimes less so. But there are also stressful and less stressful times here, and lots of opportunities to reconcile the two areas.
Changing departments is also something that always involves new challenges, for example with the very different systems or international contacts you have to constantly adapt to. But these changes are also what teach us new things and allow us to gain a lot of different perspectives during our training.
vPOOL at its best – What do you like about your work and why do you like working at vPOOL?
Switching from one department to another and the diverse tasks mean that our working days always have variety. And once we’ve been properly trained, we can also work independently – for example, we might take care of individual customers ourselves. Aside from that, there’s a really good, collegial atmosphere at vPOOL, and we’re always welcomed with open arms. Last but not least, there’s the good job prospects, of course: apprentices who make a good impression during their apprenticeship have a good chance of becoming a permanent member of the vPOOL team afterwards.
