Great summer internship for career and personal growth
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.

Omaha, NE | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The great support structure provided by ConAgra.


Downers

Sometimes it felt difficult to investigate other areas of the company.


Advice to Potential Interns

Go in expecting to work very hard. The internship at ConAgra is not a "go and fetch me coffee" type of intership. You work hard on projects that have meaningful impact.

The best aspect was that I got to go to a different lab each week.. I learned something new everyday and I learned all parts of the company throughout my internship.

The day did not always follow my agenda/schedule, but I am flexible and adapted quickly to any changes made.
