Kenny Duong

Trainee industrial clerk at TAMPOPRINT since 2019

What do you do at TAMPOPRINT®?

In the training to become an industrial clerk, the theoretical part takes place in the vocational school and the practical part in the company. At TAMPOPRINT, I work my way through all the commercial departments. Here I learn about the various activities of the individual departments and I am involved in the day-to-day business during this time. At the beginning of each department, there is a learning phase in which I am instructed in the department-specific activities. I then receive the first tasks, which I am allowed to work on independently. My colleagues are always available to answer any questions. So after each job you become more confident and after a short time you can work independently.

What was your most memorable moment during training?

When I was in the goods-in department, my colleague went on sick leave because of an injury. So after just two weeks of learning the ropes, I was allowed to take over the department on my own. Here I had to prove my courage, since I was on my own. Because from now on I was in charge of receiving, inspecting, booking and distributing the incoming goods. This time was very formative for me, as I learned a lot about independence and responsibility in professional life.

What makes your work interesting?

Going through the various departments gives me an all-round insight into the company. This makes the training very versatile and you always learn something new from each department. In addition to the commercial departments, I am also deployed in the logistics departments, such as incoming goods, warehouse and shipping, so that I gain an insight into how the goods ultimately leave the company.

What is the special thing about working at TAMPOPRINT®?

The special thing about working at TAMPOPRINT is the family atmosphere with colleagues and also the varied range of activities in the individual departments. In each department I received a warm welcome and not only get to know the activities in the department, but also the colleagues. Since you always move to a new department after a few weeks and get to know new tasks and activities, the training never becomes monotonous.

What strength should you have to fit in with the company?

Commitment and flexibility. In my opinion, you need commitment to acquire knowledge. In sales, for example, it is important to get to grips with the products so that you can give the customer the best possible advice. Flexibility is one of the most important qualities in today’s modern workplace. Adapting to new organizational workflows can only succeed through a flexible basic attitude.
