I learned a lot and everyone was so willing to help. I felt like a regular employee. People trusted me with things that other employers do not give to interns.

Downers

The desk space was very small, and the first few months were a bit boring with not too much to do. There was also no formal training, which would have been nice.

Advice to Potential Interns

I wish I knew that everyone was so friendly and that is was okay to ask questions; it is encouraged--so ask!

Advice to Management

More formal training during the internship, possibly letting the interns sit in on the full time trainee's seminars more often.

Sample Interview Questions

"Describe yourself"
"Tell me about a time you were challenged and how you overcame that challenge"
"Tell me about a situation where you took the leadership position willingly"

Would You Recommend

I loved the people I worked with. The culture of the company is very welcoming and warm and friendly. Everyone is willing to help you succeed and there is a family-like attitude. They were very accommodating on travel expenses and relocating.

Downers

The location was a bit of a constraint for me, only because I came from a city setting and moved to a more relaxed country setting.

Advice to Potential Interns

Come into the company ready to learn and learn the ins and outs of how Hormel works. They do a very good job of immersing and exposing you to people and places within the business, but make an effort to take the initiative and do NOT be scared to ask questions!

Advice to Potential Interns

If you are looking for a company where you will feel valued, Hormel is the place for you. This team is dynamic, will challenge you to reach outside of your comfort zone, and will help you learn every single day - every step of the way.

I had two previous internships, and both of them paid more than I am getting paid now. I truly believe for those that are coming in with outside experience should be compensated for that.

It would be nice to have hours of 8-5 not 7-4. some locations have 8-5 or can leave at 230, but it would be nice if everyone is equal. More vacation days would be nice.

I was given real tasks to complete and nobody was looking over my shoulder to "babysit" me. I was given a list of projects, some guidance, and was in charge of shaping my own summer to decide the priorities of various projects. I was also given many great opportunities to get familiar with the company outside of my work sphere by interacting cross-functionally.

Downers

I really didn't have negatives from the internship. I worked hard, but I wanted to do that, so it was no trouble.

Advice to Potential Interns

Even as an intern, you're valued as an employee. You are treated well and are given real responsibilities. Everyone wants to help you and they will look out for your best interest both now, and in the future.

Advice to Management

I don't have any qualms or suggestions to improve the workplace. The company has amazing policies around diversity, training, etc.

Sample Interview Questions

This was over a year and a half ago... I have no clue what they asked me at the interview! I just know they were behaviorally based questions.
