A day as a logistician apprentice
After changing into my work clothes, I prepare for the day. I need different tools (forklift, etc.) depending on the workplace. My activities as a logistician include: Checking, picking, storing, retrieving, checking incoming and outgoing goods or unloading the truck. In every warehouse there are new challenges and related activities, such as cleaning up the workplace, taking forklifts out of service and keeping warehouse statistics. One of the highlights of my apprenticeship is that I change locations every 6 months, so I get to know new team colleagues and other work methods and process steps within logistics. The quality and accuracy of the work process, as well as cleanliness, is required at all locations. The ability to work both in a team and independently are important. Calmness and patience, as well as (spatial) imagination should be brought along. Above all, however, concentration and the accuracy that goes with it. In logistics, you learn to work precisely, to deal with stress, and to think across processes. I want to develop my accuracy and professional competence even further. I can say that I feel amazingly comfortable at J&J. It's nice to be part of a pharmaceutical company that helps patients and their families.
