Apprentices have something to say

„I always wanted to work in an corporate job. I was very interested in the connection between fashion and commercial processes. The apprenticeship with Création Gross is extremely varied and we’ve been allowed to do a lot ourselves right from day one.“

„I always knew that I wanted to learn an active job. Pure office work is just not my thing. As a Skilled Warehouse Operator apprentice, I am currently working in our raw goods warehouse making sure that additional elements such as buttons, zips, interlinings etc are ready to be sent to our manufacturing facilities.“

Lilly

1st-year Retail Management Assistant apprentice

„I’m a very fashion conscious, communicative person and I really enjoy advising people and helping them find the perfect suit. First, I had to get used to the wide range of sizes and fits there are in the men’s fashion world, but by now I’m pretty confident of what I know.“

„The fact that I have a passion for IT and find it truly enjoyable only became apparent to me quite late. Initially, I started and completed an apprenticeship as an industrial clerk at Création Gross. However, during the course of the training, I realized that my heart beats not for the office but for programming work, and I was determined to learn how it all functions. I am very grateful to the company for allowing me to pursue my second apprenticeship here. My career path may be unconventional, but I have finally found the right path for me. Thanks to my mentors and the company for enabling me to become the best version of myself“
