Freudenberg Sealing Technologies

Co Op

January - May 2022 • Troy, OH

What I liked

The people here were lovely to work with, and the environment was very welcoming. I could not have asked for a more perfect first engineering-based job. The experience was very informative and it helped me solidify my desires and plans for the future. Additionally, the site that I worked at didn't have an overwhelming amount of office staff. So, I was able to have a more unique and individualized experience.

What I wish was different

I wish that I could have gone on a few more road trips to visit companies that Freudenberg works with. This co-op term has sparked my curiosity on what other industries look like. There is a wide variety of companies that Freudenberg directly works with in the area. So, being able to visit some different work environments would be very interesting. This is something I am very excited to pursue in my second semester with Freudenberg.

Advice

One piece of advice I would share is to bond with the people working in the office and on the shop floor. My boss gave me this piece of advice the first week I started working here. And truly, it made work so much more enjoyable. The best part of this job was the people. So, I would highly recommend you make the most out of your time, and really get to know the people you are working with.

Advice

Learn from everyone as much as you can regardless of the department they are in. While your internship may have you working in one area, it is beneficial to use this time to see if you have an interest in other departments of the plant. You will be surprised by how much you have learned by the end of the work experience.
