Automotive mechatronics technician

"I feel inspired by the technology and the craftsmanship in the work with the vehicles."

"My Grandfather has been working at Andreas Schmid for 35 years. As it is important to me to have a familiar and stable employer, I decided to do my apprenticeship with Andreas Schmid. During my internship I was already allowed to carry out some smaller repair jobs on the trucks under supervision; changing tyres and rear lights for example. Then I knew that this was the right qualified profession for me. I feel inspired by the technology and the craftsmanship in the work with the vehicles. The best thing for me personally was to drive the truck that I had previously repaired.

After my apprenticeship I would be happy to continue working here as an automotive mechatronics technician. I can still learn a great deal from my helpful and kind colleagues in the workshop."
