Onboarding

To facilitate the onboarding process for new colleagues and to make their first couple of weeks as easy and comfortable as possible, we work according to an internal mentor program. As part of this program, each new employee is assigned a mentor who is available to answer any questions and take care of possible concerns. The mentor provides support in matters of the introduction to the departments, the company structure and the responsibilities. 

In addition to the mentor program, we follow a clear training plan. This plan helps introducing our new colleagues to all teams and its members and familiarizing them with the processes and projects of each department.

Let us know if you have any questions concerning your start at ERICH JAEGER!

Even after your studies you have the opportunity to explore different professions. If you want to know what it is like to work for an industrial company in the automotive industry, an internship can give you the deepest possible insight into our daily work. 

Let us know if you are interested! We will help you find the type of internship that you are looking for.

Our Advice for Young Professionals

Diego Patino:
"Never give up! When I proposed to study and do my master’s degree while working at ERICH JAEGER, Mr. Voisin wasn’t sure at the beginning because the company has never done this before. It was actually me who did the introduction into the university and then I came up with a folder and I proposed the idea. After having thought about it a little bit, he was convinced that bringing a young professional and new, fresh knowledge into the company is a good idea. So, ERICH JAEGER really gives you a lot of opportunities. We have a lot of expertise in what we do and we get really personal in our products."

Helmut Michalke:
"My experience here is that you have freedom in all directions. You can develop quite freely and have a lot of room to maneuver. There are some colleagues who have worked abroad at our other subsidiaries. Often, paths have developed in directions that you didn't expect at the beginning. So take advantage of the opportunity and make an impact!"

Lukas Zimmer:
"
Be open to new things. Think about which areas you’re interested in and try to get involved in them. There are always opportunities you can take. At the end of the day, there are an incredible number of opportunities here. There’s something for everyone, no question."

Phillipp Jung:
"If you’re interested in one of the areas, just send a speculative application, swing by, take a look at the whole thing. If it isn’t for you, then that’s no problem, but it’ll be good experience. I can only say it worked for me, and I'm still here (laughs). And as an introduction to the world of work I think it’s great, no question."

Yinghua Wang:
"Be open to taking on versatile jobs."

Yinghua Wang

Head of Development of the JAEGER Group.

"If you're only in one country, you might only be aware of what is happening on the surface. But to really visit the factory on site and talk to the people over a longer period of time, that trains compassion and understanding among each other."

Helmut Michalke

Head of Supply Chain Management at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany.

"Intercultural competence is very important here and the international teams are a real enrichment. Every culture is different, but in the end everyone is the same and has their own problems and goals. There is a different working atmosphere at each location. In China, for example, I regularly played basketball with colleagues."

Lukas Zimmer

Head of Inside Sales at Erich Jaeger in Friedberg, Germany.
