Frequently asked questions
What is the application process for a apprenticeship at your company?
Our application procedure starts in July of the previous year with the advertisement of the apprenticeship positions on our homepage. The first stage of the actual application process is an online recruitment test. If you pass this test, you will be invited to an interview. If you are convincing here as well, you will receive an acceptance letter and a contract.Until when do I have to apply for a apprenticeship?
Applications will be accepted from 01.07., the selection process will start from 1 September. However, as long as the positions are still listed on the homepage for the respective training location, applications are still possible.Do I need a specific school-leaving qualification to do an apprenticeship at your company?
The exact requirements are listed in the individual job advertisements. In fact, this varies from occupation to occupation: in the industrial-technical field, a qualified secondary school leaving certificate is often a prerequisite; for a dual study programme, the Abitur, the subject-specific university entrance qualification or the university of applied sciences entrance qualification with special aptitude assessment at the DHBW is required.What is the support like during an apprenticeship in your company?
During the entire apprenticeship or study period, our apprentices are supported by full-time trainers who are always ready to listen to technical, organisational and personal concerns. In addition, dedicated apprenticeship officers supervise the assignments in the specialist departments, where our apprentices can practically apply their acquired knowledge and expand it using real examples.Are there regular feedback meetings during the apprenticeship?
Regular, constructive feedback is very important for the further development of everyone involved in the apprenticeship. For this reason, not only our apprentices receive feedback on their performance, but also the trainers and apprenticeship officers on the current assignment.Do you support your apprentices with any special benefits, such as a subsidy for the bus ticket?
Our apprentices can take advantage of a wide range of special benefits, such as discounts in the company catering, apprentice-sports in the first year of training, personalised I-pads or laptops and a wide range of seminars to optimally promote their professional and personal development. We reimburse the tickets for the journey to the vocational school by public transport.Is it possible to complete part of the apprenticeship abroad?
As an internationally active company, we are interested in enabling our apprentices and dual students to gain experience abroad at an early stage. For certain courses of study, a stay abroad is obligatory. In the second year of their apprenticeship, our industrial clerks have the opportunity to continue their apprenticeship at our Spanish location in Sta. Margarida.
In addition, we regularly check the possibilities for our apprentices to participate in a 4-6 week stay abroad.What are the chances of being taken on after completing apprenticeship?
Brose provides demand-oriented training and offers all apprentices at least a fixed-term employment contract after completing their apprenticeship. In the area of dual studies, we also aim to take on trainees if there is a mutual fit.What further training opportunities are there for apprentices in your company?
Our apprentices and dual students benefit from an extensive range of further training. Already during the training period, seminars such as competent behaviour, presentation techniques, first aid courses, English lessons, experiential education seminars and some more support the professional and personal development. Even after the apprenticeship, internal and external further training courses ensure that the knowledge acquired is always kept up to date. Brose also provides organisational and financial support for in-service training.What does a typical career path look like?
There is no such thing as a typical career path at Brose: the success stories are as varied as our employees. However, there are many successful careers whose foundations were laid during apprenticeship. Many skilled workers who have completed their apprenticeship pursue in-service training, for example to become a technician or master craftsman. Others deepen their knowledge in a (master's) degree programme or develop themselves in an internal development programme.
