To give you an idea what an apprenticeship at Austrian Post is like, we have interviewed Tamara Prenner:

My name is Tamara Prenner

  • I am 15 years old, I live in Hartberg
  • I am in my first apprenticeship year and I have been working for 5 months

How did you learn about the apprenticeship position at Austrian Post?
The Austrian Public Employment Service (AMS) told me about this apprenticeship position. I applied and was invited to an interview after completing an evaluation.

What is your typical workday like?
I start work at 9:30 or 10 a.m. First thing in the morning, I check our computer system to see if there is something I need to take care of. Then, I go to the telecommunication products counter, where I sell mobile phones (I have already registered three mobiles by myself).  If business is slow, I join my co-workers at other counters and help them. I finish work at 6 p.m. except on Fridays, where I leave at 4:30 p.m.

What do you like best about your job?
The best part about my job are my co-workers, but I also enjoy working with mobile phones because I that is something I am really interested in. The regulars are also very nice! 

How exactly does your apprenticeship work?
I spend every year of my apprenticeship at a different postal branch. The idea behind the apprenticeship is that people explain things to me and I then do them myself, but under supervision, until I can do them on my own. I directly report to Mr Gruber and I can ask him anything.

What are your professional goals?
I want to pass my final apprenticeship exam, and I would definitely like to continue working at Austrian Post!

First things first: you probably want to know how much you will be making!

Depending on your seniority as an apprentice, your monthly salary before taxes will range between EUR 627 and EUR 1,005.
