Joining the company 3 years ago, every moment has been absolutely valuable for me.
With a very clear and fast-track programme – “high way or no way”, it really pushes me forward with very high concentration so that I can achieve the first big milestone after 2.5 years.
Look back on the path that I have been so far, I feel so privileged to have opportunities developing myself not only about technical skills but other than that is about leadership skills – it’s such a comprehensive development. Of course, during the time, there were a lot of ups and downs, but with many coaching sessions, reviews, guidance from top management I really got the chances to reflect, improve and from time to time, my mindset and maturity has been sharpened so that I can get myself ready for next challenges ahead. Being a part of Crystal Group and Associate programme, no words can express my gratefulness and sincerity with the chance given. I am very happy and proud to be a little part on the way to “helping the best become better”.

The Associate Programme brings me a clear & fast-track career path where I am always encouraged to explore and expand my capability.
It shows me that there is no limit to what I can do, even though I was a fresh graduate with limited experience. Thanks to the opportunity to work and lead my team on the front line very early on, I gained deep understanding about Production, both in terms of technicality and people management.
Crystal International makes sure that we grow not only in terms of work, but the most important thing is that we develop as strong and well-rounded Future Leaders. We are given plenty of opportunities for overseas exposure, cross-functional training and factory-level project implementation, all of which are unique experiences that helps me gain a big picture overview of the business that I otherwise would not have.
As my favorite quote says – “It never gets easier, you just get stronger” – The Associate journey is no doubt a challenging and tough one, so if your goal is to become a strong Leader, this is the journey for you.

Joining Crystal Associate Programme is quite a “coincidence” to me, but then it turns out to be such a valuable experience I am grateful for. As an overseas student returning to Vietnam due to Covid-19, I had not really planned to settle down until becoming a part of Crystal Associate Programme. Right from the start, I can feel the company’s caring culture, from our daily life, such as accommodation, transport and even our family, to our personal development thanks to a strong network of mentors and coaches. The program is also well-structured with clearly-defined goals, helping me navigate my way better.
Every day in Crystal goes really fast, since each day I learn many new things, not only technical knowledge of a merchandiser but also management skills, how to gain team trust, how to lead a team, how to develop yourself and your people. To a fresh graduate like me, this is an incredible opportunity that pushes me out of my comfort zone to go beyond my limits.

Crystal Associate program is really well-structured providing me with a solid platform to develop and outperform.
As a PA, I am given the exciting opportunity to take on an operation leadership role of hundreds of people. This is extremely challenging but truly rewarding experience. The biggest fun is that I never know what happens next. Different types of challenges coming everyday makes me more versatile and stronger. There are new things to learn every day, so I never get bored.
At Crystal, I can tap on everyone’s guidance. No one is too senior to talk to. This is one of the key factors that I can build up my functional knowledge and leadership skill so quickly. I really appreciate the culture of caring “For The Greater Good” transferring across all levels in company.
Even with many years to come, I still believe that the colorful experience and valuable knowledge acquired here would be instrumental to my career. Looking forward to writing a wonderful journey with Crystal!

Associate Programme doesn’t only provide me an environment to build up and improve experience in Industrial Engineer and Manufacturing Excellence but also gives me opportunity to change my mindset, develop good habits and become a better version of myself every day.
From the first lessons on self-management including becoming more confident, being more open-minded to feedback, managing my emotion to the experience of developing my team members to give effective feedback, to be able to manage conflict and so on.
These are all valuable lessons that I have learnt so far on Crystal Associate Journey. And that is what I really love in Crystal Associate Programme and what differentiates Crystal Group with other companies I have been to.

Crystal for me is not only a company to work for, but also a life to live. This is literally the miniature world where I have chance to meet so many types of people, experience so many thing-both interesting and challenging, in which I can nurture myself as a mature human. Compared to myself 1 year ago, I know I have grown so fast and become a better person, which would barely happen if I was elsewhere in the world.
As a Production Associate in Crystal, I meet a lot of talent people and they are young just like me. This create an ideal environment where I have chance to compare myself to those I really admire. That helps me easily identify what I’m missing, learn from them and grow together.
Finally, Crystal Associate Programme is not just a job. It is a well-structured development programme, which guide me to the direction I need to go in my career. Chance to be here is chance to be shown the way to success. The question is, am I ready to take this promising but also very challenging opportunity? After 1 year working here, I can say proudly and confidently: I am ready!
