What our interns are saying


Name: Natalie
Major: Finance and Business Management
College: Purdue University
Year in School: Class of 2017

“I chose to intern here because of the people and the values of the company. As an Automotive Marketing Intern, I worked with IHS data, resolved Quintiq software problems, and forecasted marketing data. My most valuable experience was having the opportunity to go to Davenport a couple times, both Onboarding week and for a conference with the office of Farmington Hills, and seeing how everyone interacts with one another. Everyone was so proud of the unique products they were making. I truly enjoyed the flexibility and understanding within my group. As simple as my manager, who handles challenging tasks on a daily basis, stopping what he is doing to invite me for an ice cream break, comes to show how invested the company is in the people, the work, and success.”


Name: John
Major: Chemical Engineering
College: Columbia
Year in School: Senior

“My internship experience at the Technical Center has allowed me to further use my talents and increase my personal development. Throughout my internship, I worked with the Engineered Surfaces Division in the AWTP portfolio in an R&D role. My project consisted of developing a white coating process on the lab scale to have a wheel prototype created near the end of 2016. The most valuable experience was being able to tour the Cleveland plant and see the lab scale prototypes come to life. Working with all the experts around ATC has been an experience I would not find elsewhere.”


Name: Eli
Major: Materials Science and Engineering
College: Cornell
Year in School: Senior

“My internship experience exposed me to various people, applications, and processing techniques that have broaden my interests. While at the Technical Center, I was involved in the development of cutting edge materials science technology, all while being exposed to various businesses, industries, and applications. The large breadth of applications and interests at the Technical Center encourages employees to be diverse, engaging, and knowledgeable. I am happy to have been a part of the innovation, engineered.”


Name: Natasha
Major: Mechanical Engineering
College: Georgia Institute of Technology
Year in School: Rising Senior

“As a Continuous Improvement Intern, I was able to gain experience in a developmental role. Working at Cleveland Works, I was challenged everyday trying to make the plant the best it can be. My projects included establishing an organized system for the saw templates as well as maintaining a database for the new Faro Inspection System. My most valuable experience was being able to work and learn from the different departments in the company. In every project, I worked with engineers, operators, metallurgists and so much more! Everyone was extremely helpful and wanted to see you succeed. It was very nice to be in such a welcoming environment where you are pushed to your full potential.”


Name: Ashley
Major: Materials Engineering
& Nondestructive Evaluation
College: Iowa State University
Year in School: Junior Year

“My internship gave me the opportunity to learn specifically about super alloys and investment casting, something that is only briefly covered in school. This summer, I interned at the Research Center in Whitehall, Michigan with the Technical Services group. Within Technical Services, I was splitting time between working on materials related projects and nondestructive evaluation (NDE). Through my own projects and those I assisted with, I learned to be patient and flexible with the timeline of the projects. Overall, I truly enjoyed the challenge; working on real projects and given responsibilities that challenge me to put my prior knowledge to use, while also drawing from the various resources around me.”


Name: Katie
Major: Supply Chain Management
College: Penn State University
Year in School: Class of 2016

“This summer, I interned with GBS for the Capital Procurement Team where my tasks ranged from writing a standard operating procedure to conducting analyses on capital project spend. My internship gave me the opportunity to get exposure to a little bit of everything that goes on in capital procurement. In addition, I was able to visit Cleveland Works, attend a supplier visit in Irwin, and a supplier auction event. I even volunteered with Tree Pittsburgh! This was my first supply chain internship, so it was a whole new experience for me. Getting a taste of what working in the “real world” at a large company has been the most valuable takeaway for me. As a supply chain major, it couldn’t get much better than this!”


Name: Clare
Major: Financial Mathematics
and Risk Management
College: University of Michigan
Year in School: Class of 2017

“After interning with the company last summer and having a great experience, I knew I wanted to return for another summer. One thing that drew me to the company in the first place was the many opportunities to grow both as an employee and as a person. As a finance intern, I worked both with HQ and Davenport finance teams developing a Management Accounting Playbook and documenting the returned metal authorization (RMA) process. The most valuable experience was talking with my mentors and supervisors and learning from their experiences.”
