Your apprenticeship
in our Tchibo shops

Do you fancy moving around a lot and at the same time be well looked after and supported?

Your team is looking forward to meeting you and helping you if you have any questions.

Your apprenticeship, your story!

Not interested in monotony and boredom? Then our shops are the right place for you! Just as it is for Patrick. He loves his customers, the varied tasks and the unmistakable team spirit - so much so that as soon as his apprenticeship is complete, he will start as a shop manager trainee. Patrick is already dreaming of running his own shop. He tells his story in our video.

The faces behind our shops

What makes sales at Tchibo so special?

Larissa Meyer-Riekenberg
Tchibo is a big family for me

"What I like best is the contact with customers. No two customers are the same and the work is never monotonous or boring. Tchibo is a family business, which means I work in a friendly and open environment. As a trainee I also benefit from a lot of advanced training (especially about coffee) and I am allowed to take a lot of responsibility during my apprenticeship. During my trainee project, I even acted as deputy shop manager."
Larissa Meyer-Riekenberg, apprentice in sales
Laura Niewerth
Drinking coffee? A kind of work disease

"When I was a little girl, I always wanted to be a cashier. Now I run a Tchibo shop and am super proud of what we offer our customers. By the way, I've only been drinking coffee since I started working here. Before that, I didn't know how exciting the world of coffee could be. We learn all that at training courses. I'm glad that I am able to sell our customers products that I'm really convinced about myself.”

Laura Niewerth, Shop Manager
