Real World Experience

 

Who We Are

W. Soule is over 70 years of unrivaled experience, dexterity and skill utilizing custom fabrication, process piping, commercial HVAC and millwright services.

What to Expect – Variety

You will work along side experienced teams and supervisors. The teams may vary, depending upon the work, and give you experience with a number of projects, clients, and W. Soule teams.
Eric, an intern from Western Michigan University, said it best “The variety of work I did was the most useful part of my internship at W. Soule. I designed a piece, then searched for a hydraulic to fit it. I had to revise the design to fit what was available and learned to take parts into account in my design. You don’t learn that in the classroom – and I have a better appreciation for procurement. Yesterday I met with a client in the food industry, today I’m talking to engineers for a furniture customer. It’s never the same day twice.”

Culture

With only the fifth generation of leadership in more than 70 years, W. Soule runs like a family business employing 90 staff in the offices and approximately 360 union craftsman in shops and the field.

Flexibility

Flexible hours to work around class and studying schedules.
