With Märtens into professional life

A field report on the training

Jannis Schneiders is 21 years old and currently in his third year of training as an industrial mechanic. We asked him in an interview how he likes it at Märtens in the workshop.

How did you decide to apply to Märtens and what convinced you?

I have always been enthusiastic about crafts and knew the profession of industrial mechanic through my father and through friends. One of them was working at Märtens at the time and I had also already become aware of the company online. Then I did a one-day internship and felt at home right away.

  • How was your start in working life at Märtens?

Great, I settled in quickly because my colleagues always took care of me and showed me everything and helped me. There was also a great get-to-know-you excursion with the whole department.

  • What are your tasks?

I help to manufacture machines or parts of machines for our own production. In addition, sprockets for our customers' systems also come from our workshop.

  • Is there anything you would have expected differently?

I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to take on responsibility so quickly and create and implement my own designs for projects.

  • What do you enjoy most about working at Märtens?

The versatility and my colleagues. The cooperation is harmonious, we also have fun sometimes and do things together in private. I feel like going to work every day.

  • Would you recommend Märtens for an apprenticeship?

"Yes, I would start here again at any time. The tasks are varied, the working atmosphere and the working hours are good. In addition, one has a one-year takeover guarantee after graduation. "

Does that sound good?

There are currently still places available at Märtens for the start of training in 2022 - including a brand new apprenticeship as a mechatronics technician (m/f/d). The main contents are electrical engineering, mechanics, control engineering and computer science.
