Advantages of an apprenticeship at AL-KO

Induction process
Induction process

The induction stage at the start of your training is intended to help you quickly get your bearings at AL-KO. The agenda for this includes getting to know your colleagues, a welcome from the Executive Board, introduction to the company’s rules, factory tours and group work.

In the first six months, our industrial trainees are taught the essential basics of metalworking such as milling, drilling and filing in the AL-KO apprenticeship workshop. There are also courses in turning, welding, pneumatics, hydraulics, electro-pneumatics, CAD and CNC technology.

Further training

Alongside departmental work, we also promote trainees’ continuous learning process through regular feedback discussions. Another firmly established component of the training is our Junior CAMPUS program: Under the motto “Learning for future”, our trainees are supported through a wide-ranging program of seminars. AL-KO trainees attend seminars focused on both technical topics and social skills, in line with the role they are training for.

AL-KO is “small enough” that our employees quickly make new contacts in the form of colleagues throughout the company, but still “big enough” to guarantee that training is wide-ranging. Because they regularly change departments, trainees at AL-KO are constantly learning new subject matter, meaning that overall correlations in the company are quickly understood. Fixed contact people support our trainees through the period of their training and are available to answer any questions they may have.

Healthy and subsidized staff canteen/meals

Company pension scheme
