Why am I happy to Hillebrand Coating and what makes the company special for me ?!
I have been with the company for almost five years, and I’ve always had a good, almost familial relationship with my colleagues and the management. Even when I wasn’t able to continue my studies, Hillebrand Coating gave me the chance to become an integral part of the team. Something like that cannot be taken for granted.

The tools provided are modern and of superior quality. If anything is missing, we talk about it and arrange to order it.
At Hillebrand Coating, I can always count on the support of my colleagues. What’s more, as a member of the company, you are given a lot of confidence, trust, and plenty of freedom.
Why I work at Hillebrand Coating and the things I think make the company attractive for employees ?!
I felt very welcome from day one. Among other things, this was largely down to the fact that my new colleagues told me extensively about their respective work areas and answered all my questions in great detail.
Overall, we have a pleasant working atmosphere, because you help and support each other when problems arise. This cooperation is a very big plus in my eyes.
After all, we spend much of our time at work, so it’s important for me to go there with a good feeling.
Why I am (happy) at Hillebrand Coating ??!
I am happy to work at Hillebrand Coating, because I feel comfortable here. I like the way they take care of my training and how it is organized. I like the fact that all employees among themselves always try to help and are happy to share their knowledge. I also like the fact that the company is well established and progressive. To me, the company is built very solidly and that gives me a good feeling for the future. Therefore, I am very happy to work at Hillebrand Coating.
What Makes Hillebrand Coating Stand Out for Me??!
To me, Hillebrand excels in the following points:
Hillebrand Coating continually seeks modern methods and strives for further development. Modern technologies are always used, like DocuWare, FrontFace, OEE, Kaizen Developments, …
The company is well structured, both when it comes to the production process and in relation to staff planning. By providing complete documentation of every process, even the smallest detail of the process gets observed and checked, without exerting too much control.
The willing transfer of knowledge to new employees or trainees, the promotion of training in various areas and the participation in community projects at the company are the clear strengths of Hillebrand Coating for me.
I have been working at the company Hillebrand Coating since 2008, and I have already participated in many of the training programs on offer. For starters, to strengthen my professional position and secondly, to develop myself. Currently, I am completing training for machine operators and I think it’s good how much Hillebrand Coating values trained staff. The competent staff are very helpful and knowledgeable, answering questions and jointly seeking solutions to emerging problems.
For the theoretical part of the training, which takes place in a classroom once a week and is one of the most important aspects of the training, you get released from Hillebrand Coating. The work days are tailored to the course and it turns out to be relatively simple to combine the two. By combining school with the daily work, you can implement what you learn and understand the theory better.
Thanks to Hillebrand Coating, there are no limits to what you can learn. With ample support from the company, additional training is simple and straightforward. If more training became an option for me, I would always participate with the support of the company.
My Career – So Far …
I’ve been with Hillebrand Coating for seven years now. My career I started in August 2010 with a studies in two areas. Here, I completed the training as an industrial clerk in 1.5 years, while studying for 3.5 years at the Administration and Business Academy in Arnsberg. My degree is in business administration. During my training I got to know all the departments of the company and was able to directly link the theory with my work practice. Since completing my training as an industrial clerk, I am employed in accounting, purchasing, and human resources.
I especially liked the support of my colleagues during my studies, for example, when I had to write term papers or my dissertation. Also, because this is a family business, I had the chance to use my knowledge not only in a limited area, but also beyond, because I am responsible for several areas.
After I had successfully completed the dual bachelor degree, I decided to proceed with a new and more challenging task and attach a dual master’s program. I did my master’s program at the Ruhr West College in Mülheim on the Ruhr. This program built on my bachelor degree, focusing on finance and controlling and took 2.5 years. The program at the University of Ruhr-West can be completed in less time. Throughout the study period, I was supported by the company (free on attendance days and financially supported). Through the dual degree, I discovered that you can learn from a wide variety of experiences of fellow students, while also exchanging technical information. This way, you find correlations or differences to work in your department and learn from it. Likewise, a dual degree gives you the possibility to gain work experience and earn money, while obtaining a nationally and internationally recognized university degree.
I feel good at Hillebrand Coating, because you feel extremely welcome by colleagues and are always supported with any questions. I also appreciate the warm work environment that prevails at Hillebrand Coating. Moreover, Hillebrand Coating is trying to foster its employees individually according to his/her wishes and needs.
Why I like working at Hillebrand-Erbslöh Oberflächen?
Why do I like working at Hillebrand-Erbslöh Oberflächen?
I was able to get to know Hillebrand Coating for the first time during an internship during the summer. Then, after my high-school diploma in 2011, I started training here in mechatronics. My colleagues were friendly and cooperative, so that I quickly became part of the team. During the training, I got to know all areas of the company and if problems arose, I could always rely on the help of my colleagues. The use of modern technologies such as robotics and automation technology and the daily changing challenges make the work very interesting and varied. During the training, my knowledge was constantly expanding through internal and external training and greatly encouraged throughout.
After my training, I started and advanced training course as a technician in mechatronics. Here, too, I received the support of Hillebrand Coating, which enabled me to attend training at an evening school while continuing daytime employment.
I especially like the varied work, the family atmosphere, and the constant encouragement for my skills at Hillebrand.
As a trained vehicle varnisher and “woman in a man’s job” my entry into industrial coating technology at Hillebrand Coating was made very easy. This may be down to an intensive training period, as well as comprehensive training and education. When it comes to new projects, we are involved as employees and can contribute ideas and make suggestions at any time. Everyone is given the opportunity to show where his/her personal strengths lie, so we can collectively contribute to the success of the company.
The company is very success-oriented, but despite all that, I appreciate it very much that everything happens very close to the people. Events like a company run or a driver safety training are on offer to promote the good relationships which already exist among colleagues. You like the boss’s daily tour just as much as a personal conversation with him. You never feel abandoned by your superiors, and you can always approach them with your requests and concerns.
