...in the sorting area:
Sorting is manual work. At these workplaces, the collected goods arrive and are sorted into different groups and articles in different sorting stages. Since the marketing of Second-Hand clothing follows the trends of new clothing, a regular adjustment of the sorting is part of this task.
Since efficiency plays a major role in sorting, in addition to quality, we have introduced a bonus system that rewards the female employees with a high sorting performance.
The employees are responsible for their own working area. Nevertheless, teamwork is very important, because the individual work steps of the sorters are interlinked and in the end, it is the overall result that counts.
Have you become curious and are wondering what requirements you need to meet for this job?
You should be able to work independently and on your own responsibility and be motivated to learn something new. We will take care of the rest. Intensive training together with an experienced sorter is natural for us.
…around the sorting:
The internal transport of goods, storage and loading activities are mainly carried out with forklift trucks, for which our employees have the appropriate qualifications.
In this area, however, there are also auxiliary activities, such as weighing bags at the sorting tables or moving containers; in other words, all work that supports the sorters in carrying out their work efficiently.
Not everyone is familiar with sorting used clothes and textiles and marketing them as second-hand products. Did you know that 70% of the world's population wears second-hand clothes?
We extend the life of an unwanted garment. No new clothing has to be produced for it, which would require the use of valuable resources. In this way, we help to save these raw materials and protect the environment.
