WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR ...

young seedlings who are motivated to grow with us and share our passion for the natural raw material wood.

WE'LL HELP YOU GROW

BECOME RETTENMEIER® SEEDLING

You are about to graduate from school and are wondering what to do next for you? Perfect - we are constantly looking for young seedlings who are motivated to grow with us. We promote young talents who are just as enthusiastic about wood as we are. This is how we create the basis for many successful years together at rettenmeier®. 

In forestry, a seedling is a young plant that is released to grow in its environment and form deep roots - just like our trainees. We give them the opportunity to learn all the skills and abilities of the corresponding job description - in theory and practice - and still give them enough freedom for their own development. This is how our trainees become strong and deeply rooted rettenmeier® trees.

 

PRIO1: SUSTAINABILITY - ESPECIALLY WITH OUR TRAINEES

It all depends on the people! The people at rettenmeier®, their skills, creative ideas, motivation and much more, ensure our success. That is why the satisfaction of our trainees is especially close to our hearts. 

SUPPORT PROGRAM FOR OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE

Every year, particularly talented apprentices are accepted into our rettenmeier® talent program. This is an exclusive talent program in which we promote apprentices with outstanding performance and train them to become top employees with a passion for wood. First-class career opportunities for first-class trainees. 

 

JOINT PAID TRAINEE LUNCHES

All trainees to the table! We regularly organize a joint paid lunch for all trainees. This gives us an opportunity to exchange ideas across departments - because food is good, everything is good! 

 

JOBROTATION

Let's go on a voyage of discovery! In order to exchange experiences and ideas, to get to know cross-site work and to see our different production processes, a trainee exchange between our rettenmeier® sites takes place regularly. 

 

TRAINEES FOR TRAINEES

The high-quality safeguarding and development of our junior staff is of enormous importance to us. With "Trainees for Trainees", our apprentices have the opportunity to train each other - with the support of our specialists - on specific topics.

 

RETTENMEIER® HEALTH OFFERS

Health is the be-all and end-all. With our voluntary health offers in the areas of prevention, nutrition and exercise, we sustainably strengthen our employees. "Physically healthy", "Mentally healthy" and "Healthy together"!

 

REGULAR TRAINEE EXCURSIONS

Get out of the daily grind and into the fun. Twice a year, we take our trainees out on great adventures and strengthen the sense of togetherness. 

 

TRAINEE & STUDENT LOUNGE

Anyone who is expected to perform needs a break on a regular basis. The good news is that this is possible. In our "Trainee & Student Lounge", our seedlings can recharge their batteries, exchange ideas and engage in collaborative learning. 

 

REPORT CARD BONUSES

PAYMENT DAY for our trainees! In addition to our rettenmeier® talent program, we also reward very good school commitment of our trainees with an annual report card bonus - learning pays off!

 

AZUBI TRIP

Slovakia or Latvia? Once during the apprenticeship, the trainees go to one of our locations outside Germany. Fun, culture and rettenmeier®. 

DUAL COURSES OF STUDY

Theory at university, practice at rettenmeier®! A dual study program with us is the perfect first career step for all those who cannot decide between training and studying after graduating from school. With our dual study programs, both are possible!

FLEXIBILITY

Work-life balance stands for a balanced relationship between professional and private life. Our goal is to bring the private interests of our employees into a healthy balance with our requirements. Only those who live in balance can achieve extraordinary things. 

INTRODUCTORY DAYS

For apprentices, the start of their training usually means a change of life. To make this as pleasant as possible for the trainees, the two-day introductory days for all new trainees take place centrally at our headquarters in Wilburgstetten after a short familiarization phase at the respective training location. 

 

COMPANY EXAM PREPARATION

Preparing for exams is pure stress for many trainees. In order to start the exams as prepared as possible, we offer in-company exam preparation to work on weaknesses and build on strengths.

 

ERASMUS EXCHANGE PROGRAM

The dream of living abroad despite education? No problem! With the ERASMUS program, we make it possible for you to spend up to 30 days abroad, which we pay for in full!

 

GRADUATION CEREMONY

It is the moment that all trainees have been looking forward to for the whole of their training: graduation! Our seedlings have grown into a firmly rooted tree and this must be celebrated properly.
