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.”
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.
Flexible hours to work around class and studying schedules.
