Vanessa Bär, training as a chemical laboratory assistant

What I very much like about my apprenticeship at Zschimmer & Schwarz is that we get a deep insight into the company's different departments. Whether in analytics or development, we get to work independently on tasks everywhere, and as a result develop our skills and learn a great deal.


Tim Groß, training as an IT specialist in systems integration

As my father also works at Zschimmer & Schwarz, I have known the company since I was a child. But that's not the only reason why the insights into the company I'm now getting during my apprenticeship are so wide-ranging and interesting. I'm also getting to know colleagues from all areas, the work is very varied, and I enjoy it every day anew.
