We love the fresh impetus that you, as our career entrants, bring to the company and are eager to capitalize on it, while allowing you to learn from us. During your internship or vocational training program, or on your entry into the company, you will be provided with the tools you need to make a success of your first career phase. We in turn will learn from you and your perhaps unconventional ideas. By creating a mixed age structure comprising fledgling professionals and experienced employees, we create a corporate culture that benefits everyone, both young and old.

Compensation and benefits.
It goes without saying that we offer our employees an attractive salary. We also provide them with a wide range of supplementary benefits, which vary depending on location, position and business area. We serve as an employer in over 60 countries, offering numerous benefits in line with the specific country standards and requirements. In Germany, for example, all our employees receive Christmas and holiday pay as well as a company pension. In the USA, we offer our employees health benefits and, in our large plants China, we put on shuttle busses for our employees to travel to their workplace in comfort, without needing to use public transport. Many of our locations also offer their own canteens. In countries where collective bargaining agreements are in place, we regularly renegotiate these agreements and coordinate important decisions with employee representatives.

“Like so many others, I wanted to go into teaching. But because teaching degree programs were so sought after, I ended up looking around for something else and getting a job with a company specializing in large gear units,” explains Britta Mehring. The 26-year-old engineer has been working on the innovative MULTI elevator system for a good six months now and is delighted with her decision to choose a career in technology over a career in schools.
