The optimal manufacturing experience


Uppers

The culture! The people! I was very comfortable in the environment and that made it easier for me to get my work done


Downers

The location. It's located in a small town. I'd rather be in a city


Advice to Potential Interns

This is a growing company that has extreme potential. Your freedom to implement ideas is unlimited and if you're looking to make your mark on a company during your short stay, or in the long run this the place for you. Most of the locations are in small towns and very few are in large cities so be sure to do your research on the location.

There were a lot of opportunities to network and see what a full time position would be like with a laid back atmosphere.


Uppers

Learning the culture of the company


Downers

I wanted more interaction with customers after the food process


Advice to Potential Interns

The atmosphere is really laid back and everyone is very willing to help an intern learn and understand the company to gain a full understanding of the companya nd what it has to offer in the future.


Advice to Management

I think the company should work on a better work-life balance for employees directly in production.

An Internship Where You Don't Have to Get Doughnuts Every Day


Uppers

The people are laid back and friendly. Everyone was willing to help, and I was amazed how much time they would take from their day to help an intern.


Downers

I would have liked to have been able to watch the other interns presentations. Maybe a separate presentation where only the RQI interns present to each other? Also, the training videos are a bit long and repetitive.


Advice to Potential Interns

The culture is one that promotes people working together. I reached out to employees working on different projects and they were always willing to show me what they do and let me participate. I also had to reach out for help on my project and people were always willing to help. It is a laid back, comfortable environment to work in every day.

BEST INTERNSHIP AVAILABLE TO COLLEGE STUDENTS


Uppers

Managers, people we work with, culture, opportunity for a full-time position, benefits, trips to headquarters and fun intern activities, networking opportunities, can wear jeans to work, summer hours (getting out at 1:00 PM on Friday's)


Downers

I could have had a bigger work load and been able to handle it just fine.


Advice to Potential Interns

This internship is a great program for any major. I was in sales, and learned so much. They treat you right. There are also so many opportunities to network. The managers are there to better you and help you succeed.


Advice to Management

This is the best place to work in the food industry!

Great engineering problem-solving experience with a huge opportunity to grow your networking and leadship skills


Uppers

Great management style and personality, extremely open and wanting to help attitude. Frist-hand experience in my Majors field. Networking opportunity with other interns from schools all over the country, memebrs of the plant I was at, and with corporate employees for future employment opportunities. The pay.


Downers

The latest I ever came into work was 5:30 a.m. which was tough some mornings. (keep in mind I don't drink coffee or any other sort of caffeine in the morning) The location I ended up at was a small town out in the middle of no where which got boring on weekends.


Advice to Potential Interns

ConAgra is a great company that can offer practically unlimited resources to you. You will be taken care of and learn a lot in even just 12 weeks.


Advice to Management

I wish I had more time.

Entering into a new city and company outside of my normal element was well required experience I needed


Uppers

From my headstart in the SAP data program, to the customer face experience


Downers

The simple transportation options to and from work was really the issue in which I experienced was the only challenge.


Advice to Potential Interns

For one to see where your potential employees stand in strengths as well as weaknesses. Then learn how to develop those skills from a fundamental standing point.


Advice to Management

Diversity, Intern/New Employee evaluation and Outreach to receiving feedback.

THIS JUST IN: ConAgra Foods Voted #1 Internship Experience!! Why Aren't YOU Here Yet?


Uppers

(These are not in any specific order; just whatever popped into my head). The opportunities to learn, not only in IT, but in a business aspect as well. The people. The work. The technology. The exposure. The pay. The options. The diversity. The proximity to home and school. The application of my skills.


Downers

In all honesty, the other interns tend to not appreciate what opportunities are thrown their way. I also see a lot of interns form cliques, do homework on company time, and dink around in general.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is not a place for a person who wants to be "average". We make extraordinary food in even more extraordinary ways and we do that with extraordinary people. Please don't work here because they will pay for your college or they pay alot. Work here because it would teach you something and because you legitimately have something to contribute.


Advice to Management

To become a better organization, there are few things that I feel ConAgra could do to improve. I would recommend that they watch WHO they hire for INTERNSHIPS a bit closer. I do not want to work with children.

Awesome/relevant projects within a company that has great potential for young professionals.


Uppers

The best aspect was being given a project that had real business relevance. I can see the significant impact the results I obtain will have towards the growth of the company.


Downers

Some aspects of working in a corporate company took a little while to get used to, such as the chain of commands.


Advice to Potential Interns

There is so much opportunity for young professionals here at ConAgra. The amount of business growth that occurs on a monthly basis is incredible. This means that many positions will be opening up in the near future.


Advice to Management

Expose people within the company to what else is going on in the organization.

Yes

An excellent work experience


Uppers

I liked all the different opportunities provided specifically for interns. I also liked the different rotations provided by the IT internship


Downers

I would have liked to have started out in a different IT team. Preferably one that wasn't so customer oriented


Advice to Potential Interns

The IT internship provides a great opportunity to see many different parts of IT.


Advice to Management

Set up better first rotations for IT interns

Great learning and networking experiences across multiple functions of the organization.


Uppers

The best aspects of the internship was having the management support to learn as much as I could. They were very supportive of me wanting to do some job shadowing of others during my internship to gain more exposure within the supply chain. I also loved the culture there. I felt very connected with my coworkers and it didn't seem that I was just some intern. I was given the opportunities to work on a lot of different things during my internship and it was value added work-- not just busy work.


Downers

It started out a little slow. I didn't have much to work on so I had to go looking and asking for more just to keep me busy throughout the day.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be flexible in your learning. Try to work problems throw first then when you get stuck ask questions and ask for some guidance. If your plate isn't full, ask to have some one-one meetings with the different managers and directors of the company. Ask to job shadow some people in areas of interest; it's a great opportunity to gain exposure, learn from their experiences, and network!


Advice to Management

Have system access done before or the first day of employment. Make sure those who are responsible for you are aware/reminded of your start date so they can be prepared.
