Apprenticeship at Arbonia

A vocational trainer is responsible for the training of apprentices in each apprenticeship occupation. He or she is responsible for the quality of the training, the design of the training programmes and content, and is the primary contact person for the apprentices. The vocational trainer is supported by the various practical trainers who ensure, guide and monitor practical training in the workplace in the operational departments.

To ensure uniform standards across all apprenticeships, there are internal vocational training regulations valid throughout Switzerland that clearly define the training processes as well as the rights and obligations of the apprentices. This forms the basis for high-quality training and the smooth running of the apprenticeship.

The progress of the training is planned, reviewed and evaluated every semester. Although it should not be the first priority during the apprenticeship phase, it is important to us to also reward good performance appropriately by paying suitable bonuses for above-average performance in practice and vocational school. Good performance should be rewarded!

Last but not least: The apprenticeship period is demanding and it is necessary to reconcile requirements and tasks from various areas of life. This is not easy. We therefore try to offer our apprentices attractive activities outside of the daily work routine with occasional events.

People at Arbonia

Novinka Krajisnik, logistics specialist goods received with Arbonia Solutions AG

I have been working at Arbonia Solutions AG since November 1994. In all these years, I have been able to gain a lot of experience in various departments and functions. I have operated a wide variety of machines and completed the respective courses. I have been working in logistics since 2017. My main tasks are receiving goods, processing returns, picking direct customer orders and storing various products for the companies Arbonia Solutions AG and Prolux Solutions AG. At the moment I am in further training to become a certified Swiss logistics expert. I am very happy about this support and that employees are given the opportunity for further training. I am very happy with the atmosphere in the team and with my supervisor and his management. I really enjoy my work and feel very comfortable. It is important to me that I can also make a valuable contribution to the team. I also like the fact that I can work very independently. For the future, I hope to successfully complete my training and have another exciting time at Arbonia Solutions AG.

I like to spend my free time with my family. I enjoy this time very much. Our next holiday destination together is America, which we would like to visit. To balance out my work, I go for walks and bike rides on the beautiful Lake Constance.


Yves Siegwart, department head project management with RWD Schlatter AG

My time at RWD started in January 2000 as a project manager, even though I only had experience as a carpenter up until then. Soon I was promoted to be the head of the department. I was very young at the time and had no experience in leadership, which is why that task was a big challenge for me. But I really wanted to master this challenge. For a few years now, I have been leading 20 employees and I have learned a lot in that time. My main tasks are the leadership of my team, personnel and capacity planning, budgeting and active participation and support in the daily business and projects. The support of our different branches is also a part of my responsibilities. On top of that, I am the main contact point for all customer complaints. Our department is the one point of contact, where all of our internal departments and  customers come together and is thus responsible for the complete order. This makes this function extremly varied and interesting, but also makes it a challege, as every customer order is unique. At RWD I especially like the informal culture and the friendly atmosphere. Also, I can exercise my creativity in my daily work and I have many freedoms, which is a big plus for me. I try to fill my job with as much enthusiasm as possible, engage  and fight for both my team and the company. On top of my job as head of the department, I am also the president of the employee committee. Within the committee it is very important for us to keep and improve on our informal and relaxed culture, as well as the cohesion within the company.
