"The apprenticeship at DB Cargo AG is the best that could have happened to me. The supervisors are very friendly and helpful, whether it concerns operational or private matters. During the various seminars the trainers explain everything in an understandable way and help with any questions you might have. The colleagues in the operational departments are also very friendly and supportive. I can recommend the apprenticeship at DB Cargo AG to everyone."
