WE ARE FAMILY!

JÖRG, MEDIA DESIGNER

“In our team there are no chiefs to follow. Instead, plenty of freedom and trust that you will do your job to the best of your ability. This is unique!”

STEFANIE, BUSINESS INTELLIGENCE EXPERT

“I like how everyone here works together on projects and decisions and develops solutions as a team. You notice how much the colleagues identify with the company in the way they work together.”

ALMIRA, GINA CATEGORY MANAGEMENT ASSISTANT

“At Ernsting’s family, everyone is allowed to be exactly who they are. All fashion styles are welcome and there is no uniform style that employees must adapt to. This struck me as positive from the very beginning and is one of the many reasons why I felt so comfortable and welcome in the company from day one!”

FRANK, IT COORDINATOR

“At Ernsting’s family, an IT specialist is involved and integrated right from the start! We are not 100 per cent programmers, but also to a very large extent process consultants and system consultants – and of course application developers. We are always challenged by new projects with great and unique complexity, which is great fun.”

ONUR, LOGISTICS EMPLOYEE (PICKING)

“I came to Ernsting’s family from another career. I used to work as a hairdresser. Since then, I have never regretted daring to make a new start. I have the opportunity to personally develop further and I have a great work-life balance.”

LINA, SALES ASSISTANT

“At Ernsting’s family, I can bring my strengths to the table and implement my own ideas. I really appreciate the trust placed in us as a store team without team management on site.”

ERIC, INDUSTRIAL ENGINEERING ELECTRONICS ENGINEER AND FORMER APPRENTICE

“As part of my interview, we went on a site tour and visited the high-bay warehouse. I was so impressed that I didn’t hesitate for a second when I received my acceptance letter two weeks later."

VINCENT, DIGITAL MARKETING MANAGER

“There are always new challenges and opportunities in the digital environment. Our goal is to be up to date at all times.”

CHRISTIANE, IT CONSULTANT PLM

“What is special for me is the way I have been welcomed and encouraged in the company.”

EUGEN, LORRY DRIVER

“We have a modern fleet with well-maintained lorries. For a few years now, I have had my own lorry and a permanent round for my deliveries. After work every day, I return home to my family and don’t have to spend the night in the lorry.”
