Meet Gianluca, one of our 2022 International Management Trainees. 

After his Master in International Management, he started a path that gave him the opportunity to live in different countries facing challenges in new environments. He very much values that the program fitted so well with his will of learning and finding new experiences.


His decision to join our program was largely influenced by the many opportunities it provides, such as joining projects in Logistics and Strategic Marketing/CRM & Digital in Vienna and Cologne. 

This was for him the best way of gaining a broad understanding of REWE International. He has successfully completed the program in March 2022.

Meet Jana, one of our 2022 International Management Trainees. 

After completing her Master in Management, she was still searching for her ideal career path. She chose the International Management Trainee Program as it provides a great opportunity to step into the world of retail. 

Having a basic knowledge of retail, but a great love of food, she appreciated starting the program off with working directly in stores at BILLA and PENNY Czech Republic, learning retail from scratch. 

She joined the marketing team in BILLA Slovakia, not only enjoying the particular topic a lot, but also gaining deeper insights in the interrelations between different departments. 

Meet Elias, one of our 2022 International Management Trainees. 

After completing his Master in Sales and Marketing in Barcelona he made the decision to join the big world of REWE International and our program. He clearly sees it as the best choice to begin his professional career. 

Having completed working in the stores, he looks back on an extensive insight into the daily business and challenges at the point of sale at BILLA, BILLA Plus, PENNY and BIPA. And due to the close work with our area managers and store managers he could even gather first valuable experiences in leadership. 

He strongly believes he has right now a solid base to further go on, getting more insights into our supply chain the next months.
