Best internship experience.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Everyday, showing up, and being hands on and involved.


Downers

There were no cons.


Advice to Potential Interns

It is necessary to be relaxed and easy going when interviewing and interacting with the company. AV is one of the most laid back companies there are and they try hard to maintain an easy going nature.

A rapidly moving environment with a large amount of satisfaction when complete.

Uppers

The ability to work with physical flight hardware. The ability go to a flight test and watch the simulations in real life. The amount of trust to work with hardware as part of the day to day job.


Downers

The lack of structure for executing a task. The large amount of tribal knowledge about the product versus documented materials.


Advice to Potential Interns

Spend as much time as possible working on projects in school. It is a fun position to have and doesn't not feel like work. A lot will be expected of you when working.

Uppers

Great co-workers
Projects tailored to your skill set and interests
Flexibility within project guidelines


Downers

Not much to do in Simi Valley
Lots of undocumented procedural stuffs


Advice to Potential Interns

The only real down-side to Simi Valley is that there isn't much to do in the town. Make sure to explore the surrounding areas including the coast, LA, and Pasadena on weekends.


Advice to Management

More documentation of company procedures would be extremely helpful for people just starting out.

Test Engineering Internship.
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The company had an excellent machine shop that I used frequently.


Downers

I worked under 2 different people, one was excellent and another was busy quite often, which caused for some confusion as to what I would be doing for a significant amount of the internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

I would tell interns to get access to the machine shop quickly. The town itself doesn't have a whole lot to do and there aren't many young college-aged people there that I noticed, so the machine shop definitely kept my interests piqued.


Advice to Management

Allow two interns to work as a unit. There was a lot of worry for interns getting along, but in reality people are more efficient when working as a group and this would definitely build skillsets faster.


Would You Recommend

No
