    "Great Internship"

    StarStarStarStarStar

    Pros

    Opportunities to manage your own projects. Very friendly and supportive co-workers. Safety-oriented culture. Company as a whole seems to value their interns and invests in opportunities for them, whether that be projects or networking opportunities. Compared to a lot of my friends who interned at other companies, I felt like I had one of the best experiences due to the type of projects they allowed their interns to be a part of.

    Cons

    Some days are extremely hectic and some days you have almost nothing to do, but that's somewhat expected in a manufacturing environment. Some job locations are remote.

    Advice to Management

    Make the mentoring program more structured. Sometimes my mentor was hard to get in contact with. Other than that, keep up the great work!

    Interview

    For Chemical Engineering placement. Simple 'what would you do in this situation?' 'name a time when you experienced...' questions, followed by a technical question about energy saving for a distillation column at the end.
