What was your application process like when you applied to Meyer & Meyer back then?
My application process was simple and straightforward.
What stations have you already passed through during your time at Meyer & Meyer?
When I started at Meyer & Meyer in 2007, I started as an industrial employee at the Peine logistics center. At the end of my time at the Peine site, I was a divisional manager; today, the term group management is used for this. I then moved to the logistics center in Lehrte. After a few years as warehouse manager, I am currently responsible for the entire logistics center at the Lehrte site.
What does your typical workday look like and what challenges do you encounter?
Since conditions in logistics change every day, every day is different. Above all, you have to be able to react flexibly and quickly. That's why it never gets boring and new challenges have to be mastered every day. My job is a mixture of operational responsibility for the Lehrte site and all commercial issues. This includes, for example, meetings with customers and discussions with employees about profit responsibility and occupational safety. The strategic orientation of the site is also part of my daily routine.
What fascinates you about your job as head of the logistics center?
I can bring a lot of myself and my personality to the site. In addition, flexibility is an important issue for me.
What defines your team?
We have very different characters in our team. For this reason, we all complement each other very well. We all enjoy coming to the site because we have a good working relationship. This becomes particularly clear when you look at the length of service of the employees at this location. For many employees, it is over 10 years.
Why does Meyer & Meyer suit you as an employer?
Meyer & Meyer gives me freedom in many things. As a manager, that's very important in order to be able to develop myself and the team around me in the best possible way.
