Training days at KELLER
18. March 2021
My name is Alexander Sagarra and I’m 14 years old. Over three days I took part in a trial apprenticeship at KELLER Pressure.
On Tuesday at 8 am I started the day at human resources and afterwards from 8.30 to 10 am went I to freight forwarding. There, the parcels are packed and then shipped. From 10 to 12 am I was allowed to take a tour of the company where I could see all the steps of the production, and which I found interesting and exciting. In the afternoon from 1.30 to 4.30 pm I was in the mechanical production department. I was allowed to help with the individual steps – I particularly liked this.
On Thursday morning I visited the marketing department, where they showed me how the website is constructed and in which applications the KELLER products are installed. In the afternoon from 1.30 to 3.15 pm I went to the product management and they showed me various pressure gauges and how they work. After that I went from 3.15 to 4.30 pm to quality management, where I could inspect defective products, and find out, why they were broken.
On Friday, I was in the accounting department from 8 to 12 pm. I entered invoices there and I also had to check whether all the invoices that had to be sent had really been sent. From 1.30 to 4 pm was I in the Lasering department. There I had to put the housing parts in a tray and then place them in the laser machine. Afterwards, you have to programme the machine and it does its work. At the end, I was allowed to programme something myself on the laser machine and take it home with me.
I am very happy that I was able to spend these three days at KELLER Pressure, because I learned a lot of things and the employees I worked with were very friendly.
