Professional driver

"It's never boring behind the wheel."

"Andreas Schmid is well known as one of the biggest training companies in the Augsburg area. That's why I was happy to get an internship place here. I felt very good in my internship and that's why I began the training to become a professional driver here.

I went through several departments during my apprenticeship. The workshop was the most exciting place for me, as I gained an insight into the inner life of my truck there. Driving a truck for the first time was also very exciting. Another great thing during my apprenticeship was the Big Party, an event for all 1,800 employees.

I wish that more young people would do this apprenticeship. It's great fun not just to work in an office, but also to see a lot of the world. It's never boring behind the wheel."
