My impact on OC

4.8 of 5 stars

Toledo, OH | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The collaborative work and the ability to leave an impact on OC through the projects assigned to me.

Downers

There was too much emphasis on networking, which put less time on my calendar to get a true look at day-to-day work in operations accountant.

Advice to Potential Interns

I wish the social aspect of the internship would have been stressed more before starting.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Exciting, and really an eye opening experience to the real world financial experience.

5.0 of 5 stars

Toledo, OH | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Work relationships, intern activities, running the community service project

Downers

The food in the cafeteria wasn't the best, everything else was good!

Advice to Potential Interns

The atmosphere and how everyone treats the interns very well. You aren't looked at as an intern and more of as a real employee. It's a 3 month interview for a the full time offer.

Advice to Management

Really everything has been amazing so far, I enjoy coming to work everyday.

Sample Interview Questions

Tell me a time when you showed leadership amongst a group?

Enter as an intern, operate as a global expert.

Flexibility, autonomy, and experience.

Downers

Lack of travel to global plants to gain insight into manufacturing operations.

Advice to Potential Interns

While you may enter afraid of taking leadership on a project, there are tons of different avenues for advice and assistance.

Open more schedule time. While touch bases are critical to employee involvement, it can become frustrating to need to schedule a short meeting 2 weeks in advance.

Other (US) | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I really enjoyed the work, as I felt like it was high quality and impactful to the company. I didn't feel like I was giving menial or busy work.

Atlanta, GA | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Getting to learn about the different systems and the pieces of equipment that we have onsite.

Downers

Working with a union environment where as a supervisor I was limited on what I could so.

Advice to Potential Interns

They really are a good employer. If you are a hands on type person, it might take some getting used to, to not do the work yourself but allow others to do it. I wish I had known what the union restrictions were before starting.

Advice to Management

as far as hours go, I'm not a huge fan of working longer than 9 hour days. some of our full time people work 10-12 hours a day.

Sample Interview Questions

Describe a time where you had a professional conflict with someone but were able to resolve the conflict. What did you do?
Describe a time where you went above and beyond what was required of you.

Owens Corning's Glass City Experience

5.0 of 5 stars

Toledo, OH | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

getting to network myself, working on a project that had direct impact on the company's financials.

Downers

I honestly can't answer that question. They did so many things well for me I cant think of something I could have complained about.

Advice to Potential Interns

It is such a great company to be apart of. Every company promises that their company culture is great and top notch, and I have done previous internships before this, yet Owens Corning is the only company that could actually back what they were saying. Toledo is an up and coming city.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Owens Corning: where you find growth, opportunity, and challenge in everything you do.

4.9 of 5 stars

Toledo, OH | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The close knit community of interns and availability of the full time staff. The full time employees were always very willing to help.

Downers

It was overwhelming at some points because of all of the responsibility handed to me. In the end, everyone was there to help me. I just needed to ask the questions.

Advice to Potential Interns

Ask lots of questions and find ways to separate yourself from the other people going for the same job.

Would You Recommend

Yes
