About Valero Energy Corporation

With footholds in 44 states, Valero Energy Corporation is the largest refiner in North America and produces nearly two million barrels of oil per day. The firm has nearly 5,800 retail and wholesale stores, which operate under the names Beacon, Diamond Shamrock, Shamrock, Ultramar and Valero in the United States, Canada and the Caribbean.

All of Valero’s refineries hire summer interns; and three refineries have engineering co-ops throughout the year. Interns may work in the firm’s accounting, corporate communications, IT, internal audit, legal, business development, venture development, marketing and supply, transportation and sales departments, as well as within the company’s business analysis groups. While at Valero, interns have access to training, wellness programs, mentors and intern events. The most notable of these is the company’s summer intern symposium, during which interns network with each other and company leaders and are treated to dinner and a river cruise.


Open to students attending a four-year accredited university who have completed at least their sophomore year. Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0, both cumulative and major (IT or information services majors require a 3.5 GPA).
