The new social science: Food and fun.
Omaha, NE | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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?"

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.

Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

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.

Awesome company + awesome people = Extraordinary food. It's the perfect recipe for an awesome internship.
Omaha, NE | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

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.

The commute in the morning has been my least favorite part about the internship.
