“Originally I hadn't planned on staying here for good.”

Gaëtane A., A Tyrolean from Belgium in customer service

Gaetane A.

How does an applicant realise that a company is thoroughly international? - If you read a French job advertisement on the internet in Belgium and don't immediately notice it's an Austrian company that is recruiting employees.

This was precisely Gaëtane's experience after she had completed her studies in "International Trade" in Liège. Luckily for LKW WALTER as well as for Gaëtane, she had taken a course in transport during her studies, and this had roused her interest in logistics. Still, after reading that French job advertisement, Gaëtane was a little surprised to realise that her dream job was in Kufstein.

Her initial scepticism quickly turned into lasting enthusiasm. Because both the varied tasks, first in her role as transport manager and then in customer service, and a happy private life meant that she came to feel entirely at home in Kufstein. “Originally, I hadn't planned on staying here for good. But everything just fits. Professionally as well as privately”.

"Everything just fits. Professionally as well as privately."

Gaëtane's personal tip:

LKW WALTER may be a large international company, but the hierarchies here are flat, the development opportunities are diverse and the team spirit is simply incredible.

Generally professional experience or industry knowledge are not necessary for entry into our operational business. Because we educate new employees as part of our "Train the Winner" trainee programme and we cover both theory and practice. However, there are some areas in which we greatly appreciate relevant experience and previous knowledge.

The classic apprenticeships such as freight forwarding manager or office clerk are not offered in our company.
