What I liked

I was with a very competent team and had the privilege of understanding the battery industry

What I wish was different

I wish there wasn't as high turnover in the battery industry. It seems everyone is on the move and would like for the environment to have more stability

Quality Engineering Intern

May - August 2020 • Sparks, NV

What I liked

I had the opportunity to have a personal mentor, we received weekly “class” sessions about life/careers from a different executive member, I learned a new programming language, and I had my own project that I could manage based on my own pace! Everyone at PENA is extremely friendly and more than willing to help you with anything. The work pace is fast and innovative, and it was fascinating to work at the world’s biggest lithium-ion battery plant.

What I wish was different

If we weren’t in a global pandemic, I know that we (intern cohort) would’ve done more team-bonding activities (like test-drive Tesla cars on the Fernley race track). Our coordinators tried their best, but there were a lot of restrictions that they couldn’t maneuver around, such as social distancing protocols.

Advice

Put yourself out there and meet as many people as you can!
