What people say

What (former) participants say about GPP

„After my studies, I knew I wanted to work within an IT and digitization department, but what I didn´t really know was which specific area I was most interested in. In this regard the IT GPP was an excellent opportunity because it gives me the opportunity to get to know many different IT areas. During my first placement in the Greiner AG Blue IT Applications Team, I gained knowledge in developing a digital strategy, IT benchmarking, IoT related topics, technology trends and implementing a devops-tool. In addition I had the chance to attend workshops at the Greiner Academy.  At my second placement in the Global IT of Greiner Packaging International, I am currently part of the SAP Applications Team and working on different SAP projects. I am curious about the next placements.“

“Thanks to the broad scope of my degree course in international management I am interested in many Greiner departments. My first placement in project management at Greiner Extrusion allowed me to gain experience related to company foundations in Asia and Europe and to assume responsibility in financial planning and documentation. My second placement with Greiner Assistec brought me to Mexico, where I assist with the introduction of HR processes and market research, and develop my Spanish skills. Additionally, the seminars at the Greiner Academy give me the opportunity to deepen my specialist knowledge and to meet colleagues from all divisions and sectors.”

“As a plastics technician, the trainee programme provided me an insight into the various research fields within Greiner. For my first placement in Greiner aerospace’s R&D department, I dealt with the use of fibre composites for an innovative seat cushion structure. For Greiner Bio-One’s research, I am currently investigating barrier properties for blood collection tubes. Alongside the technical challenges, I find the exchanges at company-wide R&D meetings, such as connect.innovation, particularly interesting.”
