My favourite activity as a Store Manager is to train our apprentices. This management task is particularly significant to me because I once was a HOFER apprentice myself. To accompany adolescents at the start of their professional career, to see young people joining the team and leaving our store as highly qualified adults continues to be a meaningful experience for me. That is exactly what I appreciate about working at HOFER as well: There are many open doors. Regardless of your background, male or female – HOFER gives everyone the same opportunities. I really enjoy being a Manager here!”
