Calling all 2018 Interns and Co-ops!
October 2, 2017We are on the search for our next intern and co-op class! This past month marked the end of a summer filled of learning, new experiences, and a ton of fun for our 2017 interns. This year we hosted students from over 15 different colleges and universities who were able to immerse themselves in areas of our business such as Supply Chain, Marketing, R&D, Early Production, and Engineering.
During their time with us, they were able to take part in weekly Lunch & Learns facilitated by Senior Leaders from across the organization, team build through a number of social events, give back to the local community through CAFE time, and wrap up their time with Keurig Green Mountain by presenting their contributions and project work through our Annual Poster Competition held in our Burlington, MA office, in addition to presenting to their peers, managers and extended leadership teams.
Hear about some of our interns favorite experiences and highlights from their time with Keurig below:
“Reflecting on activities that were specific to interns I really enjoyed the events planned outside of work, because I feel that they were a great opportunity for interns to bond, communicate, and feel more comfortable in a new environment. In regards to the overall experience I think the poster competition was a great experience because we were able to travel outside of our everyday environment to learn more about the company, while showcasing the work we've done this summer. I also was very impressed how we were able to sit down with the CEO for breakfast, that showed me how much our time and efforts are really valued here at Keurig Green Mountain.”
“I really appreciated being able to talk with people from all over the company. I'm still figuring out what direction I want to take my degree in once I graduate and having the opportunity to explore and learn from others was really valuable.”
“Even though I was based in Massachusetts, I was able to visit the Waterbury, Vermont site and see the coffee roasting and packaging first hand. Everyone I encountered at Keurig was excited and interested to hear about the work I was doing. It was clear that my projects, both independent and team-based, were valuable to the company.”
“The culture at Keurig Green Mountain is positive, encouraging, innovative and inclusive. I have found that nearly every employee at the company share similar values and the desire to improve. I have found through my role as an intern, people are more than willing to take time from their busy schedules to lend a helping hand, or simply listen to your ideas. The most important/impressive part of the culture to me was the company’s emphasis on giving back to the community in which they participate through a volunteer program called CAFE time.”
“I think Keurig Green Mountain gave me a very well-rounded internship experience. All of the interns worked on projects that were real needs of the business, not just busy work. Lunch and learns were set up to learn more about the company as a whole and get more exposure to other departments. We were expected to work hard, but also have a fun summer. Escape the Room, bowling, and a Boston Red Sox Game were a few of the things that we were able to do as a group. My summer was packed with challenging work and a lot of fun, and I enjoyed every minute of it!"
“The level of project management I was exposed to gave me a good glimpse into full time work. The responsibilities my manager trusted me with showed me she really valued my work and input. I was given the independence to take complete ownership of my projects, and I never felt like I was just “an intern” at the company –which I think both are rare to find in an internship. The level of support I received from my manager and mentor, as well as everyone I worked with, made me feel like I was already full time, which really helped prepare me for my career after college.”
