We support each other
What good are ready-printed newspapers and brochures if they don´t reach households on time and reliably?
Absolutely nothing. That’s why you, as a paper carrier of the SWA, are an important part of our team. And that’s why it’s important to us that you feel comfortable, satisfied and pull together with us.
Therefore, if something is bothering you, don’t hesitate to contact our sales department. We will be happy to support you – just as you support us with your work.
You have an important appointment that cannot be postponed, are sick or would like to apply for a holiday? No problem – just get in touch with your contact in our HR department at least 6 weeks in advance. Please bear in mind that demand is very high during holiday periods and on bridge days and we cannot fulfill all requests.
We will take care of finding a substitute for you.
You know someone who can deliver the SWA in your district for you while you're indisposed? All the better! Just tell our team in the sales personnel department the contact details of your substitute.
It is important to us that you are well equipped during your assignment!
Therefore, please think of your safety:
- The most important thing: your safety first! If the delivery should ever be too dangerous (icy, fog, etc.) – take your time or, if necessary, sign out a little later when the situation has eased. In this case, please contact us and let us know.
- If you wish, we can provide you with a high-visibility vest that you can wear during delivery. So you are better visible for other road users.
- There is no such thing as bad weather – only the wrong clothing. Arm yourself with appropriate outdoor clothing and sturdy footwear against rain, cold and slippery conditions.
- Carry your cell phone with you – that should be certainly not be a problem 😉
