Integrated Supply Chain Engineering Intern

May - August 2017 • Augusta, GA

What I liked

I was always busy, and had a great supervisor and mentor. They gave me projects that challenged me but I was able to finish all of them. Textron had a very organized and engaging internship program and because of my experience, I have accepted a full time offer with them and will be working for Textron when I graduate.

What I wish was different

I had an overall great experience with very few complaints. My only wish is that I could have had more group projects. Other interns in my program had group projects, but I did not.

Advice

I would recommend that future interns should always go out of their way to stay busy, set up one-on-one meetings either weekly or biweekly with their supervisor, and shadow employees that work in other divisions of your company.

Integrated Supply Chain Intern

May - August 2017 • Augusta, GA

What I liked

My time at Textron was very rewarding. They taught me skills I never would have been able to learn in a more traditional business environment. I got to do a wide array of activities that enhanced my knowledge in various aspects of supply chain. Also, I like that upper management really takes the time to develop and hire interns and new hires.

What I wish was different

I would have liked to spend more time rotating through the different departments.

Advice

Keep an open mind and don't be afraid to reach out to people other than your assigned supervisor.

June - August 2018 • Providence, RI

What I liked

The company has a very well-designed internship program. They help you get to know the other interns and make it easy to ask questions and reach out to people in other functions.

What I wish was different

I honestly had a very fulfilling internship experience and learned a lot. I can't think of anything I wish would have been different and I will be returning for a second internship next summer.

Advice

Make the most of your time. Ask questions and reach out to people if you want to learn more about their role within the company.
