We congratulate Sarah, our new skilled employee, on passing her final examination

Sarah Fleischer (23) was able to complete her training as an industrial sales representative at ARJES in January of this year. After successfully passing the final examination, the young specialist continued her work at the company the very next day, to assist our team in the technical purchasing department from now on. How Sarah became an apprentice at ARJES and what she experienced during her apprenticeship years is something she is happy to tell us herself.

“I trained as a veterinary assistant a few years ago, but at the time there were few local career opportunities in the profession. As I am very close to home and a change of residence was out of the question for me, I was looking for a new challenge in the region. Through the Training-Navi program in Bad Salzungen, I became aware of the company ARJES and the apprenticeship as an industrial clerk – a career choice that would bring me significantly more opportunities, earnings and employment possibilities.

In the 6 months prior to starting my professional training, which was to begin in August 2019, I gained experience as an apprentice in the ARJES office. Therefore, the first official working day of my training was no longer a “first working day” for me, as I was already familiar with the equipment and the upcoming processes.  As a prospective industrial clerk at ARJES, I was allowed to go through the individual departments of the company. I worked in sales, accounting, administration, the warehouse and service departments. Of course, there were also tedious tasks to do now and then, such as filing and organizing documents and other correspondence. But that’s also part of vocational training – so you must grit your teeth and persevere.

I am especially proud of my achievements, which I was able to apply independently in the service department from the third year of my apprenticeship. There I was tasked with the organization and planning for the production and preparation of our shafts. During this time, I learned to organize myself better and I improved my communication skills both within the company and with our dealers.

During the last few weeks of my training, I was already familiarized with my future workplace. The purchasing department was looking for additional staff. I was asked if I would like to take this position after passing my final exams. I have been responsible for technical purchasing at ARJES since January 12, 2022. Although I didn’t expect this at the beginning of my training, I am now very happy to be in this position and look forward to, what I hope, will be a long-term career with the ARJES team.”
