Tell us about your career path at Rapid Racking…

I joined the company very recently as a Warehouse Operative. After a few weeks as a temp, I had the opportunity to sign a permanent contract in September.

With International Women’s Day coming, as a woman in the warehouse, what is your daily life like?

I try to be as versatile as possible: I prepare orders, drive forklift trucks, stock the products… I’m completely dedicated because it’s a demanding job but I know I can always count on my colleagues if I need help. A woman can accomplish these everyday tasks, just like a man. It’s just a matter of practice and keeping at it!

Which values are particularly important to you?

Of the six phrases that illustrate the Manutan Group’s valuesI completely identify with this one: ‘At Manutan, we love Human Relations & Goodwill.’ Every day, we give the best of ourselves so that the work is done well and our customers are satisfied. There is true commitment and a wonderfully supportive team spirit.

What advice would you give to an applicant who wants to Join the Manutan adventure?

Joining Rapid Racking is almost like joining a family! I’d say that you have to like teamwork and want to learn. You must also stay positive and help and care about others.
