Like being part of a family.
Büsra Pinarci is a family person, and that is perhaps why she came to Bertrandt. Because already directly after her application – at the assessment centre – she was impressed by the familial atmosphere. “I was very flustered by the selection process – but immediately I felt content,” she says, describing her first intensive contact with the company. This first impression has not changed after more than a year as an apprentice at Bertrandt. Through her good relationships with her colleagues in the specialist departments and with the other apprentices, she still feels like part of a big family. “Everyone is there for everyone else: you can always find support when you need it.”
Her condensed training to become an industrial clerk will last in total two and a half years. And during this time, Büsra will do both practical and class work, being deployed in many different departments of Bertrandt Holding, for example TQM – Total Quality Management. Quality management encompasses many subjects, from corporate security to construction projects and data protection. And she has also had exclusively positive experiences in other departments too, such as personnel marketing and personnel development. “In contrast to many other pupils in my class, who are working in different companies, I have been able to get to know many departments at Bertrandt in person. This is a great help in deciding what I want to do after finishing my training.”
And there are good chances that her wish to stay at Bertrandt will be fulfilled. “I have heard that nearly everyone is taken on after training, if they want. And I do want, definitely,” she laughs.
This would not just be a pleasure for this future industrial clerk, but also for her colleagues. Because now and then, Pinarci brings back delicious baked goods like baklava, börek or pogaca from her parents’ home country, Turkey – either baked by her mother or her herself.
“In a way, I already live between two worlds. When I visit my family in Turkey, I miss my friends and colleagues here – and when I’m here, I miss my family. So I don’t have just one home.”
