Completion of the program 01/2014

Towards the end of my studies in Economics and Business Administration, it was clear to me that I wanted to choose a trainee program to explore my many interests in practice. The REWE Int. Management Trainee Program clearly stood out due to its multifaceted and well-thought-out process.

Ultimately, the most formative experience for me was the time abroad and the store phase. My project in Croatia and the independent collaboration with German, Croatian and Austrian colleagues helped me to develop personally and gave me an insight into Group collaboration right from the start. In retrospect, it was the store phase that proved to be the most helpful, as this is where you get to know retail in its fullest form.

After completion, I chose the path towards category management and then changed to my current position in purchasing controlling, still benefitting from the trainee program experience. Even today, I still look back fondly on the experiences I had at the checkout, in the delicatessen, stocking shelves and working with the computer systems.
