The foundation for a properly qualified workforce is first-class vocational training for the staff. Krones has for decades now been offering motivated young people an attractive array of training options. In more than 20 different training and study vocations, over 500 trainees are prepared for their careers with training of rigorous excellence.
The granting of internships and thesis-writing opportunities is another important aspect of training and recruiting at Krones. We offer around 1,000 career entrants and students a look into specific job profiles and thus first opportunities to apply their theoretical knowledge in practice with numerous topics from the various areas of our business – in close collaboration with the respective universities.
Innovative training options
Together with several universities, Krones offers a sandwich-course option. The graduates acquire two qualifications after just 4.5 years: a completed vocational training course and an academic degree as »Bachelor of Engineering«. Krones offers sandwich courses for the following disciplines: mechatronics, electrical engineering and information technology, process engineering, environmental engineering and mechanical engineering.
With »Profile 21«, the latest career profile designed specifically for Krones’ field sales operations, the young people involved acquire within 4.5 years not only a professional qualification, but also the internationally recognised title of a “State-Qualified Electrical engineer”. After this, the career entrants are superbly equipped for the exigent requirements of the service business, and additionally possess the best possible preconditions for enjoying attractive development opportunities in their future career trajectories.
Since February 2012, Krones has been offering a trainee programme. This enables career entrants to familiarise themselves with and grow into the sophisticated remit of a project manager in sales within 15 months. The trainees are given spells in all specialised departments with whom they will later be working – both in Neutraubling and at the subsidiaries abroad. Each trainee is supported by a Krones project manager as a mentor.
