My colleagues sent me the employee magazine regularly. This made me feel like part of the team. That was really nice.
Viega accompanied me during my studies and had a decisive influence on my career path. Even during my bachelor's degree at the Südwestfalen University of Applied Sciences, I was able to take a look behind the scenes at Viega. The first contact then turned into a six-month internship at the production site in Attendorn-Ennest - among other things in the area of Lean Management. I was immediately captivated by the topics that my colleagues here were pushing forward, and that was the starting point for my final thesis. I wrote it - of course - at Viega, but at another production site, in Elspe, in order to expand my Viega experiences.
For my master's degree, I moved to the Technical University of Dortmund. The contact with Viega remained. What was particularly nice was that my colleagues regularly sent me the employee magazine "Viega Intern". This not only kept me up to date on the most important developments in the company, but above all, I felt like I belonged to it.. When I got the chance to write my master's thesis at the headquarters in Attendorn, I didn't have to think twice.
I fully joined the company as a trainee in the Supply Chain Development & Controlling department. The programme lasted 18 months. The highlight was a stay abroad at the Viega site in the USA, in addition to the diverse seminars and insights into the various company divisions. All in all, it was an enormously exciting time that shaped me and prepared me for my current job as a lean management trainer.
