Being a warehouse specialist, it is your job to accept and assess the quality of the materials coming into the business. You regulate in-house transport and organize the storage of the materials and raw materials. Other activities include carrying out administrative tasks for the relevant work processes. No matter what work you may be doing, you always adhere to all health and safety regulations.
The apprenticeship course to become a warehouse specialist normally lasts two years. Right from the start, you are actively involved in the work carried out in our different departments and plants – getting to know the wide range of tasks that a modern industrial service provider must be able to handle. You gain extensive expertise and get real insight into the many different aspects of warehouse logistics. By the end of the course, you will have learned the skills you need to be able to carry out the day-to-day work of a warehouse specialist on your own.
You must have a Hauptschulabschluss to be able to do an apprenticeship to become a warehouse specialist. You should have good organizational and IT skills. Reliability and a sense of responsibility are two of your strengths. What’s more, you have an open, confident and friendly manner. You enjoy meeting new people and working as part of a team.
Successfully completing your apprenticeship is just the first step towards your career. If you do well in your course, then you are given the opportunity to join our company. You decide what direction you wish your career to take and whether you want to take part in further training courses to get, for example, your trainer or master qualifications in logistics.

Some people might find it difficult to imagine learning the profession of warehouse specialist at a metal recycling plant but it is in fact really interesting, varied and informative. I’ve already learned a lot – such as recognizing the various kinds of steel and non-ferrous scrap and knowing how to accept and further process the materials and enter them into the system.
I’ve been involved in and taught about all the different business areas right from the start. So far, everything has been explained to me really well and I’ve enjoyed working in all the different departments no matter what they may do – for example, loading, sorting or processing non-ferrous metals. It’s particularly interesting to see how value is added to the incoming materials. Many of the ferrous and non-ferrous metals can be recycled so that they can be reused. Another important aspect of my job is dealing with our customers. This is also something that I really enjoy doing.
I’ve learned a great deal about the company during my time at TSR. Above all, what high regard apprentices are held in here.
