A friend drew my attention to Rhenus; she had read a job advertisement in which they were looking for new committed employees at the Hilden site – with a focus on international transport.
You often get a first impression of the company environment at the job interview. My first impression was super positive. The interview was very friendly and I already got to know many of my current colleagues, some of whom I still work closely with today. So it was definitely the right decision for me to start working for the Rhenus Group.
Very uncomplicated. After a 6-month induction, I was entrusted with my area of work and was able to start working on my own responsibility. The team was very welcoming and I felt like part of a big family after only a short time.
Rhenus offers, among other things, opportunities to change within the group. If you want to try something new and aim for a different working area, you can always talk about it openly. I think it’s good that the employees’ wishes to change are taken seriously – I’ve experienced that differently before in my professional life.
Originally, I was employed in the Accounting department, but after a very short time I was allowed to take on tasks in the Dispatching department. In addition, I was given the team leadership in the central recording area, which was my responsibility for 8 years.
Currently, I work as a Dispatcher in the “Groupage Freight” department. This change came about by chance 3 years ago, due to a vacancy in this field of work. Since I see myself as more “international”, the idea of working in the national area was a challenge for me at first. At that time, I would not have thought that I would enjoy it in the long term. But today I know: every day brings new challenges and it never gets boring. I love it when things are a bit more lively, which is fortunately the case in the Dispatching department – the heart of the freight forwarding company. My colleagues are just great and I hope that we can continue to advance Groupage Freight for a few more years.
