Amanda joined Häring in Bubsheim in 2015 as a trainee. The young American from Georgia had gone to school after a couple of small jobs to learn to be a diesel mechanic when the school approached her with a job offer from Häring. The chance of an international career abroad is rare in America and she did not hesitate to take the opportunity.
"I am responsible for the machines in production. For any problems or inaccuracies, I respond immediately and fix the affected machine. You have to be prepared for things that you often know nothing about, and then react in the blink of an eye. That makes every day a challenge.."
"Häring works with the latest machines. First of all, I had to go on to learn programming. In addition, I was able to work with my German teacher every week during work and every other Saturday at Häring. There was of course enough time for leisure activities and sightseeing in Germany."
"Everything is very personal at Häring. We have dinners together with the owners and a familiar relationship with all supervisors. For me, this time in Germany is something very special."
In America a lot of work is waiting for me. We need to build the site from zero and make sure we can start production. Everything I need to do, I learned during my time here in Germany at Häring. So when I go back, I won´t need help, and I can manage my department on my own. I think good things do not come from idleness. You have to fight, you have to work for everything - that's exactly what I did for my position at the new location in the US.
