What I like about Uzin Utz is…
Great colleagues here and abroad. The trust that has been placed in me and my team over many years. The fact that employee and customer satisfaction is not just an empty promise, but a real objective. The enthusiasm with which we pursue our ambitious goals and can also celebrate out achievements together.
What sort of support do you get from colleagues?
We are a strong community, not just on a rational level, but on an emotional level too.
Why did you choose to work at Uzin Utz?
After the peaceful revolution in East Germany, I was looking for a new professional challenge as a civil engineer in a “Western” company. I wanted to learn about new technologies and structures, expand my knowledge and build a professional career, and fast. A property report in the German architecture magazine, Bauzeitung, aroused my interest in UZIN. After that, everything happened very quickly. My application, two face-to-face interviews with the then sales manager and board member. I was a part of UZIN in no time.
What was it like at the start?
From day one, I was supported, challenged and encouraged by my colleagues. 3 colleagues from Ulm took turns traveling with me for 1 week a month to organize training courses and site briefings and to build sales partnerships. It was a very exciting, successful time and intense.
What tips would you give to newcomers?
Be confident, yet humble. Ask the right questions and listen. Form your own opinion and really on your common sense. Set yourself ambitious career goals and do not forget your family and friends, how to enjoy life and your dreams. Judge the day by what you sowed and not by what you reaped!
