Supply Chain Intern

May - August 2017 • Franklin, TN

What I liked

You get a car for the summer and great work environment! The people were great and challenge you to think outside the box and Nashville itself is just a great city. As an intern, you were not limited to the role you got accepted for, everyone in the company is very open to meeting with you, even the VP of your department and managers from different departments.

What I wish was different

I wish it wouldn't be as long (12 weeks) and have a more flexible start date. I finished my finals 3 days before my start date but it was worth it. Also, I would hope that they assist us in housing because it was a struggle finding a place for only 3 months, especially if you don't know the area or anyone in the location.

Advice

Network with people in the workplace, reach out to different managers and don't be afraid to set up a meeting with higher level individuals because they are all very open and helpful.

Parts Quality Engineering Intern

May - August 2018 • Canton, MS

What I liked

I loved working for Nissan and I was happy with the variety of different experiences I got from working in a vehicle manufacturing plant. No two days were exactly the same and it was great to not have to just sit at a desk every day. Also, all the interns are provided brand new vehicles for the duration of their internship.

What I wish was different

There wasn't much I would've changed.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask for help because everyone is more than willing to help you out.

Marketability - Infiniti Intern

May - August 2018 • Stanfield, AZ

What I liked

It provided me another opportunity to work out of Nissan's proving ground in Arizona. I had the chance to work within the luxury line of nissan driving both inifiniti products and other competitors. As a part of the job it allowed me to travel and work with other Japanese staff members in order to set targeting for a new vehicle.

What I wish was different

I wished it could have been a bit longer, it seemed that after 3 months on the job you just begin to understand what is needed in order to accomplish the tasks at hand. Also a few of the projects i worked on were delayed and started picking up right as i was leaving so extra time would have allowed me to see them through.

Advice

Be open and flexible, you never know what projects you will be put on. so being able to learn and adapt to the numerous projects make you look good in the eyes of management.
