Things you can move

As an EFZ Warehouse Logistics Technician, you store, transport and distribute goods. As Switzerland’s largest independent trading company in industrial automation, we operate an extremely large warehouse with around 16,000 different articles. During your apprenticeship, you will get to know all the different areas of logistics: you will receive materials at the incoming goods department, store them correctly, take inventory, pick and prepare orders from customers and pack and label the goods sensibly and correctly for dispatch. You book and manage all goods movements in our modern, in-house ERP system, either with the mobile hand scanner or directly on the computer. We also train you to drive a forklift. We provide you with safety shoes and work clothes – you can have the clothes cleaned immediately in our in-house laundry service.

What you can expect

At Bachofen, apprentices benefit from the following extras:

We pay for textbooks and inter-company courses

We pay for the textbooks that you need in vocational school. We also assume all costs for your mandatory inter-company courses, such as travel expenses, meals, support and, if necessary, accommodation.

More free time than elsewhere

With a 40-hour week and 6 weeks’ annual holiday, our apprentices have more free time than many others. Up to another week off is available by working the hours in advance. You also enjoy flexible working hours during your apprenticeship.

Modern workplaces and IT infrastructure

Our workplaces are modern and ergonomically equipped with adjustable desks and top-level digital work tools, including laptop and IT support for the vocational school.

Eat fresh and healthy for half price

Our team at the staff canteen keep us fuelled with healthy meals. Thanks to generous subsidies from the company, our apprentices only pay half of what is already a very attractive price.
