Manufacturing Engineer Co-Op

May 2021 • Bismarck, ND

What I liked

I enjoyed the team that I was placed with, as well as the challenging yet completable tasks/projects that were assigned to me.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have been more vocal about questions that I had in the moment.

Manufacturing Engineering Intern

May 2020 • Bismarck, ND

What I liked

I liked the variety of projects I was placed on. I was able to experience almost all the sides of the manufacturing process from concept design to production handoff. I was also involved heavily with tooling for an assembly line, which I really enjoyed and learned a lot from.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have had more projects during the slow times.

Advice

I would recommend taking advantage of networking opportunities as much as possible. I was able to form relationships with multiple different professionals that I would gladly ask for references from. Don't be afraid to get out of your comfort zone and try to meet new people.

Manufacturing Engineering Intern

January - August 2019 • Gwinner, ND

What I liked

I enjoyed getting a real world look into working life after school. The experiences I had while on the job were extremely valuable towards my future developments as an engineer.

What I wish was different

The most difficult thing about this position was adapting to the location. It took some time to adjust, but luckily they employ many interns at the same time so there are opportunities to meet people from different schools and mingle outside of work.

Manufacturing Engineering

January - August 2019 • Gwinner, ND

What I liked

Bobcat Gwinner was a great first engineering experience. It allowed me to be exposed to a variety of engineering scenarios. The atmosphere was very friendly and laid back. Everyone is willing to help if you are willing to ask.

What I wish was different

I wish I would've started off with more projects. Because of the team I was on, work didn't pick up too much until summer.

Advice

ASK QUESTIONS! A massive factory like Bobcat in Gwinner, ND contains a plethora of learning experiences. My advice would be to act as a sponge and soak up as much knowledge/experience as you can get. Also, make friends. Whether it be other Interns of Full-timers, they will prove to be helpful connections in the future.

Loader NPD Design Co-Op

May - December 2018 • Bismarck, ND

What I liked

Bobcat is full of friendly people and I felt the most like a full time employee that I ever have at an internship/co-op. The projects i was given were of substance and challenging to me. Also I was given many opportunities to make my own design decisions, which is part of why i felt more like a full time engineer.

What I wish was different

I wish that the learning curve was cut down a bit by having a more formal training in some areas. A lot of what I learned was on the job by making mistakes or running into problems. I learned the things I did very well because of this but at times it was very frustrating and time consuming.

Advice

Make it known that you are willing to work hard right away and don't be afraid to help others on your team or even outside of your team with projects. not only will you learn more but if you do well others besides your manager will notice. Also respect everyone you work with and they will come to respect you, it makes work much more fun, rewarding, and productive.
