4.4 of 5 stars

Columbus, OH | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Freedom and flexibility, good work environment, good pay

Downers

Coaching and development, sometimes lacking in mentor-ship

Advice to Potential Interns

Build a mentor-like relationship with your boss or someone on your team. This is extremely helpful for questions and allows you to build a strong social bond with someone you trust

Advice to Management

More focus on coaching and development, the ball was slightly dropped in my on-boarding schedule as far as networking and coaching.

Sample Interview Questions

STAR method before my first internship. Consecutive internships (co-op program) interviews were very casual and relaxed conversations. The HR leader asks about your interest and where you would like to go. I was able to network and go off the traditional trajectory of the co-op program by completing rotations in sustainability and the current full time position I hold now.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Invaluable project management experience.

Be prepared to network. Your are exposed to senior leadership on a regular basis, be prepared to make the most of that time.

I would give interns some day-to-day work, at times the project can get slow.

4.4 of 5 stars

Albany, NY | 2017 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects of the internship were: Hands-on and relevant projects, helpful and encouraging coworkers, challenges to grow intellectually and professionally, leadership development, and a positive company culture.

Downers

Working with the Union made it difficult to complete tasks; I did not like that I could not install or fix anything myself and everything had to go through another party.

Advice to Potential Interns

First, I would advise to accept the initial internship offer as soon as possible because there are more locations available to choose from. Finally, ensure to keep up with all of the initial paperwork and find housing early.

Advice to Management

I would allow more time for potential employees to deliberate after receiving a job offer.
