Getting true exposure to the world of construction


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were the people I worked with and the experience I gained that has helped me in my classes, obtain multiple job offers from different companies, and will help me when I start working with this company in the summer.


Downers

One of the aspects I liked least about my internship was that, because I was only there for two and a half months it was difficult to have any type of long-term project.


Advice to Potential Interns

This internship was a really good exposure to the construction world. I was exposed to the superintendent side, the engineer side, and the project management/scheduling side. It is also good to see the type of people you would be dealing with in the field. Everyone at Turner that I have worked with (I've done three internships with them) has been very friendly, helpful, intelligent, and dedicated to their work.

Great people, great experience, great company


Uppers

The people i worked with had to be the most helpful aspect of my internship. You can get paid well anywhere in this industry, but if you don't like the culture at work then it can be miserable. I loved the culture on the jobsite.


Downers

I didn't like having to leave so early for school. i was learning more in the internship than I was at school.


Advice to Potential Interns

Get to know the company and it's people inside and out. Find something you do that can make yourself stand out from the others.


Advice to Management

Try to have more social events for employees and interns so the interns can begin the networking process. I wish I could have met more of the upper-management of my office.

Real world experience, and learned from the best people in the industry.


Uppers

Best aspects of the internship would be how I got started right away in the field. I did not push any papers or get coffee to upper managment, I experienced what is like to be upper managment and what it takes to be successful .


Downers

I had no bad experience working at my internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

Always ask questions to any thing you do not understand. Everyone in my organization was more that glad to answer all my questions, and always take pride in your work.


Advice to Management

I feel that interns should get pay raises as you progress throughout your internship. You gain experience each month and get better at your job, which i feel deserves a little pay raise to reward your hard work.

Field Experience for the Construction based Civil Engineer


Uppers

The team that I worked with was very helpful and let me learn through experience instead of handing me everything. The field experience was invaluable because it teaches you what you can't learn in a classroom.


Downers

The cost aspects of controls engineering. (personal preference, still am glad that I learned it).


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't expect everything to come naturally, you will get frusterated and you will fail, your employer knows this and your success will be based on whether you learn from those failures.


Advice to Management

I think the management team did a great job to include everybody in everything. I never felt once that I was lower than someone and this was a direct result of the management teams hospitality.

Experiencing the day to day operations of a top-tier national construction company that deals with high profile clients.


Uppers

Experience


Downers

Not seeing all projects, meeting all employees.


Advice to Potential Interns

Great company with great employeers that get to work on the highest profile jobs.


Advice to Management

There are a lot of negative attitudes of on-site labor in respect to project managers and project executives. This applies to the industry as a whole. Maybe that’s what it’s supposed to be like or maybe it’s unavoidable, I don't know. But, being able to see both ends of work, I personally would like to dissolve the negativity between the working force and the executives. If the on-site hands favor working for Turner more so than others, their production will increase, and they will be fighting to come work for Turner.

Best experience one can get that college will never be able to teach you or show you


Uppers

The people that I worked with, they became my family in a way the enviorment that I was working in was awesome. I was shown many aspects of the construction management that they dont teach you in college because it has to do with real world examples and your in the middle of it.


Downers

Nothing was really a problem while I was doing my internship.


Advice to Potential Interns

Being organized is key to running a proper construction job site in and out of the office. Stay on top of your duties and if you fall behind which you shouldnt, take the time to fix it and learn from it.

Incredible opportunity for industry experience with top construction management company


Uppers

The best aspects were the people that I worked with, the experience I gained in the industry and the opportunities that I can gain after interning with such a prestigious company.


Downers

What I liked least about the internship was that I was limited to being able to help out my co-workers becuase of my lack of experience.


Advice to Potential Interns

My advice to potential interns would be to take the position seriously, network, and try to learn as much about the field as possible.


Advice to Management

I believe there really is nothing that this organization needs to do to become a better place to work, they are the best in the industry.
