Career at S-Bahn Munich: They dared the lateral entry!
Raphaela’s and Max’s career changes show just how fulfilling a second career can be. Both worked in completely different industries for years before they dared to make a new start as train drivers at S-Bahn Munich.
Raphaela: Train instead of burger

Even as a child, the 26-year-old had the dream of driving a train set. But instead, their path led them to a burger chain. During a time-out in Italy, the trained management assistant for system catering spontaneously sent out an unsolicited application – with success. "An interview followed just a few days later. I never thought it would happen so quickly," she recalls.
In the course of the retraining, she learned a lot about rail transport. "I love the job. Being a train driver is exactly what I want to do, what fulfills me," enthuses Raphaela. "When little children wave and families hug on the platform, my heart swells."She was also impressed by the long-term planning security: "I know my days off for the whole year," Raphaela says happily, which has improved her quality of life.
Max: From the screen out into real life
No longer in the mood for the PC: Max loves the view as a train driver at S-Bahn Munich Photo: S-Bahn Munich
Three years ago, the 29-year-old turned his back on the office routine in the IT industry. After friends of his had already had positive experiences at Deutsche Bahn, Max also wanted to try his luck with a lateral entry. Today, he particularly enjoys the view from the driver’s cab of the sunrise and nature: "It makes me happy that as a train driver I can be an important part of many people’s everyday working and school lives," he enthuses.
The varied work on different routes means it never gets boring, he says. In addition, he very much appreciates the crisis-proof nature of the company. Especially in times of Corona, it was important for Max that his system-relevant activity is combined with job security and flexibility.
You also want to make a difference on the job? Then NOW is the right time to do it. Already on 1. May 2022 could change your entire working life for you. Because that’s when the next retraining program to become a locomotive driver and shunting engineer starts!
