Charles River Laboratories

Animal Food Enrichment Intern

July - September 2019 • Mattawan, MI

What I liked

Work environment was excellent, and overall a great experience

What I wish was different

More interaction with other departments would have been excellent, but I was satisfied with what interactions I had nevertheless

Advice

Just because the job you initially sign up for doesn't sound all that glorious, it doesn't mean that what it turns out to be isn't a fun and exciting experience to have over your summer break.

Immunotoxicology Intern

May - August 2019 • Ashland, OH

What I liked

Great company to be a part of. They have many options for interns and the company culture is great. From the first day you are enrolled in benefits like a 401k match and other perks.

What I wish was different

There is nothing that I would have changed.

Advice

Take the time to get to know the people in the department. They are great connections to have, but more importantly, they are just enjoyable to be around.
