    I worked at Chiquita Brands as an intern (less than an year)


    Relaxed work environment. Beautiful building. Most people are very friendly and cooperative. End of semester presentation in front of high level management is great practice in public speaking.


    Way below average pay. The rotational IT co-op program sometimes puts you in groups where there is no work to be done. Other groups will work you non-stop. This is a better internship for SIS than CS majors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the interns present the work they are doing on a weekly basis.
