Great summer internship for career and personal growth

4.8 of 5 stars

Omaha, NE | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

There were many people interested in helping and aiding you with your work and with any other questions regarding life, work, and school.

Downers

I don't think the internship had cons.

Advice to Potential Interns

ConAgra helps you move out to Omaha and set up and paid for the housing- which is helpful in a short term internship. I felt very welcomed right away and was able to meet other interns. The business peer mentor program was very helpful for me.

Advice to Management

I think that the internship program is very developed. If the mid summer and end of summer reviews with managers could be pushed more, it would be helpful. Hours and compensation were good, although I felt like I had more work that 40 hours could accomplish during some weeks and was not allowed to work for overtime pay. I also felt like some other departments had interns that did not do much work but were able to get overtime and benefits from traveling to other locations.

ConAgra really pushed for the interns to get to know each other. I appreciated this because living in Omaha for the summer would have been lonely if we did not all become friends.

Downers

The summer hours left a lot of us exhausted monday-thursday since we had to work longer.

Advice to Potential Interns

Absolutely take the internship. Become as close as you can to your manager because they are your main support. Also, try to meet different cross-functional employees.

Sample Interview Questions

"Popcorn is not popping in the microwave, what is the problem?"

ConAgra treats their interns so well that full time employees are jealous of their planned activities

I loved all the planned events they put on for us. They also provided free housing and a very competitive hourly rate.

Downers

Some of the things got a little repetitive, but that's how I imagine most jobs to be.

Advice to Potential Interns

Get involved in as much as you can. I loved the employee wellness classes.

It was great to get to know people and the company as a while. They provided lessons from all of the top executives in the company for interns to hear their story. Getting to taste all of the new products was a pretty great perk too.

Downers

Involvement with other interns in the Omaha area would be cool.

Advice to Potential Interns

It is by far one of the most rewarding experiences, especially working at a large food company. Making the food people love and grew up on is very rewarding.

Advice to Potential Interns

This is a growing company with lots of potential and room for growth. Food will always be high in demand.

Incorporate traveling more to get you out of the office

the work I did made a difference and had real implications; working with all departments to problem solve projects; formal presentation at the end of the summer to executives showing the work that I did

Downers

I would have liked to see other areas of the plant for example the shipping, receiving, logistics, and production planning.

Advice to Potential Interns

Great work experience with a great company that everyone knows of that also offers you opportunity after the internship for a career.

Tell me about a time when you were part of a team and you had to convince your team of your idea.
