Training at winkler
Who are we looking for?
At winkler, we are generally looking for employees who are capable of implementing and living our brand promise "If it's from winkler, it'll be right".
People with a positive attitude to life. People who are open, communicative and reliable and prepared to continue writing winkler's company history, already over 100 years old. If that sounds like you, you sound like us.
We are particularly interested in two kinds of qualification: engineers with sales in their blood (from automotive/commercial vehicle or agricultural engineering backgrounds, for example) or sales staff with good technical knowledge – both these suit winkler very well.
The ideal, of course, is a background in the commercial vehicle spare parts business. But we will also give committed and communicative people switching industries a chance – for example, if they come from sectors like buses, hydraulics, tank/dry bulk truck, electronics/diagnostics, compressed air and the like.
Warehousing and logistics
Ideally you are a trained warehousing/logistics specialist. But we also like employees who trained as automotive mechanics or in retail. Above all, if they have knowledge of the goods management/logistics sphere or are simply interested in it.
The basic prerequisite for all employees in warehousing and logistics is: we are looking for colleagues who like to get actively involved and are tough.
In our Technical Centre, we are aiming for expensive parts with a long value-creation chain, because that is more ecological and energy-saving than fitting new parts.
For this, we are looking above all for true specialists in commercial vehicle repair, hydraulic cylinder repair and welding. As our Technical Centre facilitates a great many solutions outside common standards, such as special repairs or welding work, for example, we especially welcome employees who look beyond the ends of their noses, enjoy a puzzle and are not afraid of complicated technical challenges.
