I got great hands on experience and ownership of my responsibilities.

Test and Instrumentation Co-op (Former Employee)
Kohler, WI (US)

I worked at Kohler as an intern for less than a year

ProsI had many hands on projects that served to further my understanding of working in industry and my knowledge of electrical engineering. My mentor was very helpful but not too controlling. He allowed me to work and make mistakes on my own and learn from them, and offered his assistance and advice when I asked or was struggling.

ConsThe downside to my position at Kohler Engines was that there was not much design experience. It was mostly troubleshooting fixing other people's mistakes.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more involved in the co-op's programs and projects.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
