From commercial apprentice to senior expert
Albert Hayr, Senior Expert Service Applications/Kapsch CarrierCom AG, on his career path at Kapsch
“In 1995 I started an apprenticeship at Kapsch as a 17-year-old, after having left the technical college (Höhere Technische Lehranstalt, HTL) at the end of my second year without graduating. To my surprise, the first couple of years in the workshop were set up similarly is they were in a college. Although the daily agenda again mainly consisted of “learning”, I was much more motivated than I was at HTL. This motivation came from the apprentice bonus system on the one hand and was brought out by the trainers themselves on the other hand. Both, the motivation of our trainers and the apprentice bonus system led us to achieve the highest performance.
From the second half of the second year of the apprenticeship, you are moved out of the apprentice workshops and go into various departments in the Kapsch Group. At the start of my third year, I went to Kapsch CarrierCom, where I’m still working today. In the early years, I worked in the I&C department and on DMS 100 for alternative network operators. Towards the end of my apprenticeship, I and the other apprentices were even given exclusive responsibility for carrying out smaller projects. I can certainly say that as an apprentice at Kapsch you were and are taken seriously right from the start and are fully integrated into the work processes.
