This month, we are focusing on two of our apprentices, Eva and Lionel.


At Dixence we are always proud to welcome apprentices, whether in production, in the design office or in other departments.
Zoom on Eva and Lionel

LS: Why did you choose a work-study program?
EG: I chose to continue my work-study program because it allows me to gain professional experience while continuing my studies and I can put my theoretical knowledge into practice. And you, why was the work-study program your choice?
LS: Although my school offered me the same training but on a continuous basis, I wanted to engage in work-study training because the principles learned at school find resonance when I am in a period in a company.

EG: Why did you choose the Dixence company?
LS: When I started my research to find the host company for this training, Dixence was the only company to have given me a positive response to my application and moreover, I had already worked in the same sector. activity during my previous training. And you ?
EG: I chose the Dixence company because from what I perceived during the interview it was the diversity of the position and the geographical proximity that I liked.

EG: How long have you been with Dixence and what is your pace of presence?
LS: I have been here since October, the work-study rhythm is progressive during the training: 1 to 2 months either in school or in a company for the first year and finally a long period of 6 months in business for the third year. And you, how long have you been in the company and what is your rate of presence?
EG: I have been with Dixence since September 2020, and my work-study schedule is 3 days in a company (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and 2 days at school (Thursday, Friday).

EG: What have you achieved since you’ve been here?
LS: I made a VBA program that allows the automation of computer functions to help designers do a specific job. I also did a part manufacturing analysis and now I am on a call for projects for collaborative work with a competitiveness cluster: Polyméris.
LS: What do you like or least like about Dixence?
EG: What I like about Dixence are the tasks entrusted to me such as supplier and customer management, standard and reception as well as the working atmosphere. And you ?
LS: There is a very good working atmosphere, I have apprenticeship teachers who are listening to me and so far I have not noticed any flaws to share!

EG: Do you know what you would like to do later?
LS: After my studies I would like to be an engineer and join a company. What do you want to do?
EG: After my BTS in SME-SMI management, I plan to pursue a bachelor’s degree in human resources management because in my BTS there is an HR subject and that’s what I like the most.

Thanks to both of them. We wish them all the best!
