„It takes one opportunity to be successful.“

What I like most about my job:
- The communication with my co-workers
- The responsibility
- The variety of challenges
My career path at Loomis
I started out in 2004 as a Category B driver based in Kloten and quickly learned the ropes. I enjoyed the work, and soon grasped the connections and what was important in this job. My supervisors noticed my enthusiasm and acknowledged my achievements regularly. After just six months, I became Category B delivery route manager, which gave me the opportunity to interact directly with customers. I worked in this capacity for six years and then sought a new challenge. I completed a dispatcher training program. As Loomis is a large company, a job opening soon came up in Planning & Scheduling, which I took. I was given the opportunity to demonstrate my ability, focusing my activities on coordinating transports. I settled in quickly, achieved good results and was promoted again after two years. I am currently employed as Deputy Head of Planning & Scheduling.
Anecdote from the workplace
I am happiest when I am communicating with customers, who I see on a daily or weekly basis. Many of them are practically colleagues. In fact, some are so friendly, once in a while they treat me to a drink or a snack.
