1) The people are amazing. You are never made to feel like you are wasting someone's time. Everyone is always more than willing and happy to help you. What an incredible office culture. Fun and yet still hard working.
2) The work, when available, is great (mostly as a result of the people). You are given meaningful, interesting things to do. Everyone recognizes that you are here to learn.
3) Flexible hours
4) The Internship program they have in place - a lot of resources available to you
5) Office location

Downers

The time between the interesting work. This is mostly just a result of the nature of the business. In every experience I've had in consulting, there are always up and down times in terms of work.

Advice to Potential Interns

You get out what you put in. If you want something, ask. People want to share their knowledge/experience by nature.

The people will ALWAYS make all the difference

Would You Recommend

Yes

Success!

Phoenix, AZ | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

First of all, it was amazing to me to see what the actual design process is like and how projects are executed in the working world compared to in college. My favorite part was going on site and seeing projects getting put into action, and seeing the outcome of all of the engineering and design work that gets put in every week. I also enjoyed attending meetings. Although I personally did not say much at many of the meetings, it was good experience to be a part of this kind of professional interaction.

Downers

It was disappointing to me that because I am an intern, I was not able to travel with the team to many of the job sites. For example, the entire team flew to Colorado to look at the site and work on the design, while I had to remain in the office. I finally got to go to one of the local job sites near the end of my internship, but there were a few projects that I feel like I missed out on a lot because I could not go see what I was working on in person.

Advice to Potential Interns

This internship was a very good learning experience, and I would definitely reccomend. However, most of the work and learning is technical and not much field work/experience.

Would You Recommend

Yes

An invaluable introduction into the working world of architecture.

The inclusive and thoughtful cultural demonstrated on a regular basis by the people of this company.

Downers

The only difficult circumstance of this experience is that has required me to be far from my friends and family. All other aspects of this internship have been uniformly positive.

Advice to Potential Interns

I'm a graduate student and slightly older than the majority of interns. The sorted list of different jobs I've had to perform to remain a financially self-sufficient student has instilled upon me the appreciation for healthy institutional culture. This is a great place to start your professional life. If you have an open mind and a humble attitude and you'll gain a great deal.

Would You Recommend

Yes

exciting and alot of stuff learned, :)

Oklahoma City, OK | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I learned so much from botany, arborist techniques, how to tag and track endangered species, how to identify locations where certain species like to make their habitats, what emission points look like and the purpose of tracking them. I love the confidence that was instilled in me to complete a task without micromanagement.

Downers

I did not have any real negative points to the internship. I learned quite a bit and that was the goal.

Advice to Potential Interns

I would tell them to ensure they knew where they were going to be working if working at Tinker. The people in the office were not too familiar with what my responsibilities would be.

Advice to Management

Ensure the people we are in contact with for the projects are clear and concise on what the mission is instead of figuring it out as you go.

Sample Interview Questions

I did not have an interview.

Would You Recommend

Extremely positive experience. I want to work here!
