TROST offers two options in the training course to become a management assistant in wholesale and foreign trade:
Training in a branch
The focus of your training lies in sales. To receive the necessary merchandise management skills and to become acquainted with the interaction between the warehouse and sales facility, your training begins in the warehouse area. In the sales area, the acceptance of purchase orders is one of your main tasks. In direct customer contact, you will carry out orders for automotive parts using online software.
Training at the central office
Your training starts with a two-month deployment in one of the TROST branches. Here you will become acquainted with the main areas of our business, including warehouse, sales and phone-based order processing.
You will then have training stints in the various departments at the central office in Stuttgart. You will be actively involved in the daily business, obtaining comprehensive insights into the company. During the last six months of your training, you will be placed in the department in which you will ultimately be working.
