“Here, everyone knows your name”

An interview with Hannes Steidinger and Andreas Wais

  • Numerous entry opportunities

    MEWA is an opportunity provider: for junior employees, graduates and lateral entrants

  • Investments in employees

    MEWA supports careers with training, development and manager courses

  • MEWA: a family company

    At MEWA, we encourage personal contact and friendly interaction

They are working together to establish a new operation for MEWA near Stuttgart: Hannes Steidinger is responsible for the commercial part, while Andreas Wais heads the technical processes. Both managers are looking forward to soon being able to staff over 100 additional positions in Weil im Schönbuch. “MEWA is investing: a new operation, the latest technology, more employees. This prepares us for the future and helps us remain an attractive employer in the region”, explains Hannes Steidinger.

With enjoyment and enthusiasm

Hannes Steidinger knows what he is talking about. He has been part of MEWA for 25 years. “I just enjoy it. MEWA gave me the opportunity to continue to develop as a manager. New prospects and possibilities constantly emerged. So there was never a reason for me to switch companies”, he reports. He has been managing operations at the MEWA site in Weil im Schönbuch since 2002. “My tasks are exciting and diverse: staff, sales and customers – I like taking responsibility”.

A special charm

He is supported by technical manager Andreas Wais. He has been working for MEWA since 2013 and is already supervising a new build in Saarlouis and now in Weil im Schönbuch as well. Andreas Wais also defines the technical processes and tasks for the new employees. “There are a wide range of possibilities for joining MEWA, including as a graduate or lateral entrant. Anyone looking for opportunities can achieve them here.”

What does he particularly like about MEWA? “On the one hand, we all benefit from the advantages provided by a large company that operates throughout Europe, while on the other hand, it feels quite social and informal in Weil im Schönbuch: everyone knows you by name. This has a special charm. I feel very comfortable here.”
