I SIT ON MY FORKLIFT FROM DAWN TILL DUSK

As a Shift Manager in the Order Picking section, it is my responsibility to collect the products ordered as quickly as possible and get them ready for shipping. That means that I’m all over the place on my forklift from dawn till dusk, making sure that everything is running smoothly.

OeTTINGER IS REALLY A FAMILY BUSINESS FOR ME

I have been working at OeTTINGER since 2001. It was an obvious step for me as most of my family is employed here. I’ve never regretted it for a single day: on the contrary, I still love my work. A key moment for me was when I was asked whether I would like to become a Shift Manager. I find it really respectable that OeTTINGER has grown from being a small brewery into a big operation. I take great pleasure in playing a small part in that each and every single day.

QUALITY IS SIMPLY RIGHT AT OeTTINGER

OeTTINGER doesn’t even leave me alone outside of work – for instance when a fellow worker built a huge chair made of beer crates at his birthday party. Or when I enjoy my own very personal OeTTINGER drinks: Original OeTTINGER Glorietta Orange and Original OeTTINGER Radler shandy. Then I know that the quality is just right.
