Great overall experience that gave me a lot of hands-on experience. I really felt like I was a part of the team and was able to contribute.

Supply Chain Intern

August 2020 • Springfield Township, NJ

What I liked

I started off as an intern working in the Production Control Department, but had access to collaborate and interact with the various departments at Valcor. I learned about the concepts of planning and purchasing which eventually lead me to being offered a full time position as Planner/Buyer in the New Product Introduction Department. Valcor has a very diverse group of employees who have been here for various years and are willing to help you learn new things.

What I wish was different

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions and ask about learning new processes. You are not limited to just interacting with your team. Learn from the Buyers, Engineers. Planners, and many other Valcor employees who have many years of knowledge in many areas of the business!

Purchasing Intern

June 2020 • Springfield Township, NJ

What I liked

I started interning for Valcor summer of 2020 in the purchasing department. I gained first hand knowledge into the capabilities it took to make sure orders were placed and parts were delivered on time. With all the skills I learned, I was happy too have been offered a full time position as a project manager for new product integration working with companies like Blue Origin, ULA, and Boeing. I was thrilled to have the opportunity to continuously build my knowledge about the aerospace industry while working closely with all departments for a successful project.
