What Our Interns Say

“There is a purpose behind everything empirical wants you to do as an intern. I worked with production, I did my own research, I set up my own projects, I traveled with sales to meet customers. It wasn’t the same thing everyday and it wasn’t one project for the whole summer. It’s grown me and it’s really cool for me to build upon that now.”

- Nevada, Former Intern / Management Trainee

“I did not expect to have such an impact. I was able to work on projects relevant to my degree that also benefitted the plant. Interning at empirical, feeling valued, and getting experience was validating and I could see what the future would be like if I was working there.”

- Madelynne, Intern

“When I was 19 I started an internship with empirical in the Operations Center. About 6 months through, I noticed there was only a couple people working in the graphics department and I was really interested in that area. I started to learn on job and six months later, they offered me a full-time job. I’ve been working in that department for 14 years now. It’s been an incredible journey.”
