Working for P+R
As a medium-sized enterprise we think ahead. We are not only striving to establish long-term relationships with our customers, but also to bulid lasting employee relationships.
Hence, we establish a basis for a pleasant working environment. Reliable values are important to us: trust, openness and fairness.
Employees, who participate actively and bring in their knowledge and ideas, help shape P+R and their workplace and establish a long-term perspective. We want to permanently offer an exciting and fulfilling working field to energetic and enthusiastic people. Flexible working hours and responding to private needs are a given for us.
Our employees want to develop in a professional as well as a personal way, they want to take responsibility, actively participate and help shape – in projects, organization or the further development of our services – regardless of field of work or function. In the course of this we count on our employees’ individual responsibility. They get enough freedom to make their own decisions; at the same time, however, they can always rely on the experience and professional skills of their colleagues and company management. Here, a culture of positive and constructive criticism is important to us. In regular meetings with the supervisor, mutual expectations are exchanged and goals formulated. With this lively exchange we always stay focused on our shared goals.
We maintain and continually expand our expertise. In our field of activity, legal prerequisites change rapidly, new technologies arise and customer demands as well as customer requirements change. Through regular and qualified training measures, our specialists stay up-to-date and also have the opportunity to deepen their own interests and main topics. Further training and development also maintain the P+R’s competitiveness.
Our special concern is to shape the transition of generations and the transfer of knowledge. We are actively working on bringing young and old, experience and fresh knowledge together. With that we want to preserve the competences and contacts of the more experienced employees for P+R and at the same time give young employees the opportunity to develop with a mentor at their side. For this purpose we have established expert teams, which meet on a regular basis for exchange.
In everyday interactions with colleagues and supervisors, human relationships plays a very important role. At P+R we therefore collectively create a pleasant work climate. Joint events and activities encourage a feeling of togetherness that goes beyond the scope of the office. Openness, loyalty and helpfulness are values that are embodied and promoted by company management. Our experiences show: only in collaboration it is possible to continually develop and realize projects to our customers’ benefit.

New on our Team Environment: Laura Schneider
“After getting my bachelor’s degree in environmental sciences in Landau/Pfalz, I went to University in Oldenburg where I earned my master’s degree in landscape ecology specializing in hydrogeology and soil. Being at the start of my career, it was important to me to work in versatile projects and tasks to expand the knowledge obtained during my studies. P+R gave me the opportunity to do that and I have since been profiting from working closely with specialized and experienced colleagues from various disciplines. I have been very comfortable at P+R from the start. The pleasant atmosphere and open interaction amongst colleagues helped quickly integrate me into the team. My close relation to nature makes the Kaiserslautern area on the outskirts of the Palatinate Forest an appealing place to live.”
“During the course of my university studies I worked as a student assistant at P+R. Through interesting field trips and exercises during my studies, I became especially enthusiastic about the application-oriented subjects in hydrogeology and geotechnics. After studying the effect of heavy rainfall on the quality of water in a karst spring area in the Alps for my master thesis, I gained insight in tunnel construction.
Since graduating university I have been working for P+R, supporting the team in the fields of environment and geotechnics. I particularly appreciate the opportunity to work on diverse projects, helping me gain interdisciplinary skills. This is very important to me, especially since I am just starting my career. My colleagues always help with any questions concerning their area of expertise. I am glad to be welcomed back so cordially at P+R.”
“Originally I studied international tourism management and gained work experience at a travel agency and in distribution at an engineering company. I have wide interests, enjoy socializing with customers and business partners and I am happy to be able to apply my experiences – in travel planning amongst other things – here at P+R. I really like my job for the versatile work I do at the secretariat and the opportunity to learn and be responsible for new task areas.”
“I studied hydrology in Amsterdam. After that I worked as a scientist at the Fraunhofer Institute IOSB in various groundwater projects. In the field of hydrogeology I can work at P + R on different projects and continue to gain experience. The team and the work atmosphere have also convinced me and the region and the proximity to nature was another advantage. “
“I studied Applied Geosciences at the RWTH University in Aachen. During my studies I was able to participate in international water projects which brought me to India for my final thesis. At P + R I have the opportunity to participate as a career starter across divisions on many projects and can provide my knowledge on a broad basis. Also I benefit by working with experienced colleagues. It is also not self-evident, to be able to work independently in career advancement.”
