Our benefits for you

Our trainee trip is legendary. A few months after you join Melitta, we set off with all the first-year apprentices to spend a few days together. This way we can all get to know each other even better. You can look forward to an exciting program.

Your apprenticeship at Melitta starts with the induction days. Over 3 days, you can expect a colorful program to get to know the other apprentices, operating divisions, and our products. You’ll get plenty of information about the apprenticeship program. And our scavenger hunt will help you discover every corner of your company – including production.

At the start of their training, each new apprentice receives support from their personal mentor – an apprentice in their second or third year and where possible learning the same trade. You can ask them all your questions and get tips on everyday life at Melitta.

Whether it’s water, cocoa, coffee or tea – all your drinks are free of charge.

In addition to your normal salary, you’ll get holiday and Christmas bonuses.

After all that work, you need to unwind sometimes – and our summer party, annual Christmas party, or team parties are the perfect place to let your hair down.

If you work, you have to eat! Our company restaurants serve delicious food every day to give you the energy you need for your training.
