And Vopak evoked a positive feeling because of the informal and enthusiastic atmosphere during the first interview.

I am a Rotterdam native, born and raised in the city, and I was looking for a company with a typical Rotterdam no-nonsense mentality: actions rather than words. This still appeals to me now that I work here. What strikes me is the high degree of willingness to help each other. Even if something does not fall directly under someone’s job description, they are always willing to help you.
