Gérald Research and innovation job

"It really helped my evolution"

I started very young at Michelin, after an internship at the end of engineering studies. After interviews, I integrated the service in charge of noise and comfort performance analysis. I then expressed to my manager the wish to do more management. Three types of people helped me in my career development: - My manager with whom I have regularly evaluated my skills and my areas of progress. - Colleagues in positions I'm interested in who informed me about their missions - My career manager with whom I validated this prospect of the future. That's how I took the responsibility of a team in charge of customer placements for tourism, trucks and two wheels.

"I was once invited to dinner with a customer. It was about a new fair, which should take place in the Allgäu, an agricultural show. And while we were discussing the event, he said to me: "If you come as a Michelin man, it's worth an extra order of tyres to me". "How many?," I asked. "About 40 to 50 additional agricultural tyres. I didn't have to be told twice and ordered the costume from our prop room that we have there for stock. During the agricultural show I stood the whole day in the costume and had fun with the children. It was incredibly hot in this thing, but time flew by and everyone had a lot of fun. And the customer? He paid his betting debts and actually placed the additional order!"
