Garrett’s Slovakia Plant Hosts First ‘Open Doors Day’ for Local Students
More than 70 students from local high schools and a local university have attended the first-ever “Open Doors Day” held at Garrett’s turbocharger manufacturing site in Presov, Slovakia.
The aspiring technical and engineering students participated in a variety of activities during the day-long event, both on and off the shop floor, held at the end of March.
“To enhance company awareness among soon-to-graduate students and broaden their view on employment opportunities in the region, we opened our doors for selected educational partners to introduce Garrett in-person and demonstrate our manufacturing capabilities,” said Garrett’s Presov Plant Manager Marian Vazur. “Our ongoing goal is to help educate and inspire the next generation of technology specialists that we have in the local area.”
To experience a real turbo manufacturing environment, trainers from the Presov production department organized a shop floor tour and hosted a quiz to test their new knowledge about turbos and the manufacturing process. Employees from the Manufacturing Engineering, Quality and Maintenance departments organized exercises for the visiting students to test their technical know-how.
In addition to the technical overview, Presov’s Human Resources representatives made themselves available to the group to provide job interview guidance and skill requirements to be a successful technical job candidate.
