What exactly does your current role at Volkswagen at the Kassel location involve?
I started my training as a mechatronics engineer in September 2013 and successfully completed it in January 2017 with my final project, "Hydraulic Test Bench," in the hardening shop. After my transfer, I also worked as a machine operator in the hardening shop in Hall 3. But I’ve worked in Hall 1 since July of last year. Together with Halls 3 and 4, it is one of the largest hardening shop production units in Europe. More than 360,000 gear parts like shafts and wheels are hardened each day. There, I manage and order hardening grates, check stocks, regulate the flow of incoming orders, am entrusted with organizational and administrative tasks, and even take care of one or two other special assignments.
