No two days are alike at Nagel-Group. There is always variety, and I really enjoy that. My apprenticeship went by in a flash. I learned new things every day, and that was also thanks to my great work colleagues.
From the very beginning, I was welcomed with open arms and always with a smile. After completing my warehouse and workshop training, I was able to get my class C/CE driving licence. Nagel-Group is a fair and trustworthy employer. I can turn to my supervisors with any concern, and they always have an ear for me. All employees are considerate and value working in a peaceful and harmonious environment. Of course, there are also stressful days that are particularly demanding. But I like to just roll my sleeves up and get on with them – people appreciate you for that.
My job is special because even in these times of crisis (Covid-19) you get recognition from outsiders. I prepare myself and my truck responsibly, carefully and using all my experience, so that the vehicle and goods do not get damaged. The food industry never sleeps; there is always something to do, day or night. I never imagined in my past that one day I would become a professional driver. But the movement of goods from production, through transport to sales appealed to me, which is why I’m now a trucker. As soon as I get in my truck, I think, “Yes! This is where I belong.” The professional driver’s future is evolving from day to day. Whether it’s the technology packed into the highly modern trucks or loading and unloading at the customer’s site. It’s just a pity that the job description is still often underrated in today’s world (e.g. life in a truck). We professional drivers are working hard to break down these prejudices.
