Consumer Market Knowledge Intern

May - August 2019 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

This internship allows you to do really hands-on work on projects that impact the business. The work you are doing has purpose, and it definitely isn't just intern busy work. There is also a huge network of interns at the company in Cincinnati, so it's really easy to make friends.

What I wish was different

Sometimes it did feel like they expected too much from interns. It was nice to have responsibility, but it occasionally felt overwhelming.

Advice

Realize that this isn't an internship where you'll be sitting around doing nothing. It will be challenging, but future employers know that and it's really valuable experience.

Industrial Design Intern

May - August 2019 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I loved how I was able to lead myself through my projects and take full responsibility for them. This pushed me to strengthen my time management skills as well as further my leadership skills.

What I wish was different

I wish that the desired outcome of my projects was a little bit more concrete. While open ended projects allowed for freedom of choice, it was hard to navigate at times.

Advice

If you consider P&G a potential employer for you after school, I would encourage to you take as much initiative as you can during the job. Get to know the team, organize your own brainstorm sessions, or anything else that could get you involved and working with others.

Controls Engineer Co-op

August 2019 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

Working at P&G is great. The culture is one that you won't find anywhere else. Everyone is incredibly helpful and willing to coach you in anything that may be from your projects, to business norms, to outside of work issues. Being a co-op, you are given meaningful work from day one. Much unlike other jobs where you could be doing busy work or nothing at all. They really invest in you and want you to learn as much as you can to benefit yourself and the company.

What I wish was different

P&G is a summer intern heavy company, that if you are in the "Off-Season" there will not be many other interns/co-op's. There is not much comradely on the same level than if you were there during the summer with a bunch of other interns/co-op's.

Advice

The company does not hire only for position. They want good people who are willing to grow for their entire career. They really see it as a two way street and being someone considering the company should really look highly upon this. Also, inquiring information about it in the interview process through higher up leadership that you talk to.

Sales Intern

May - August 2019 • Kansas City, KS

What I liked

I loved the freedom and responsibility I was given. I felt like a real employee, not just a summer intern. I was treated like everyone else in the office.

What I wish was different

I wish I wasn't the only intern in my location.

Advice

If you want the job, put in all the effort you have and then some. When I saw this job posting I knew that I wanted to work for P&G so I used all of my resources and worked as hard as possible to land the job.

Sales Intern

May - August 2019 • Minneapolis, MN

What I liked

Procter & Gamble gives you one of the most transformative experiences that you can get in a single summer. I genuinely felt that I developed more in those three months than in the past year of school, the work is challenging and meaningful, and genuinely makes you an important member of the team.

What I wish was different

Honestly nothing, this was the experiences of a life time and I am beyond excited to start my full time career with P&G.

Advice

It is an extremely selective process to get an internship from P&G, but well worth the effort. Network with multiple recruiters & employees to leverage their experiences and gain insight into the entire hiring process.

Manufacturing Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Mehoopany Township, PA

What I liked

The organization of the program was phenomenal. They had all the boy interns in one large house and all the girls in another house. It was so much fun building relationship with the interns both in and out of the workplace. The projects assigned were prominent and required a ton of collaboration with the full time employees. I was able to make a difference at P&G in the 12 weeks I was there.

What I wish was different

I wish they had more travel in the program. I would love to have gone to another site and see how other products were manufactured.

Advice

Be as proactive as possible, and make it a priority to work with as many people in as many different management positions as possible. The more people know about what projects you work on the larger the impact you make on the company.

Manufacturing Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • St. Louis, MO

What I liked

The company as a whole is great. There is a mid-summer intern event at the P&G HQ in Cincinnati, OH which is a lot of fun.

What I wish was different

I wish that there would've been a little more structure to the projects we were given, they were a little too broad for a 10 week period. I also wish they wouldn't have ghosted me when I asked for feedback on how I could improve myself when I did not receive an offer for full-time.

Advice

Learn as much as you can from everyone you have as a resource, and don't be afraid to ask questions. You are there to learn first and foremost.

Sales Intern

May - August 2019 • Providence, RI

What I liked

I absolutely loved my experience with P&G. One thing P&G tells you from the beginning is that work starts from "Day One". They were not lying. On my first day I was able to make recommendations and help put together and advertisement that reached almost 500,000 impressions. In addition to this, I was able to put together a proposition for my department that would result in $1.8 million in incremental growth. Finally, I sold in two additional SKU's into my team which resulted in $2.1 million in growth. There was so much to love about P&G. They give you real work over the summer which allows you to understand if this really is a position you want. The team culture is unlike anywhere else I've ever been. The work life balance is incredible, yet everyone there works hard and works together. I would recommend it to anyone interested.

What I wish was different

Really the only thing I wish was different was the fact that many of the applications and softwares that I used weren't available until 2-3 weeks after I started. I had to sign up for them on my first day and it took a few weeks for me to get approved and for everything to work out. I was able to work on other work in the meantime, but I do think it would increase productivity if we had the softwares to begin with.

Advice

One piece of advice I would share is that you have to work hard to get the things you want. I worked extremely hard to get this internship. I studied for hours before my interviews. I sent thank you emails, I wrote hand-written thank you notes, and I was committed to the process. I had never put so much effort into getting a position as I did with this one, and it paid off.

Manufacturing Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Bear River City, UT

What I liked

The immersive experience in a manufacturing setting. Getting to work with full-time engineers and help them solve real issues they are experiencing in the plant was rewarding. The hands-on experience helped me learn a lot.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more time to interact with the engineers on site. They are all very busy so it is sometimes difficult to schedule time to meet with them.

Advice

Definitely know how to present yourself and present your work in a way that doesn't undermine the quality of your work. Managers won't see the work you've done if you don't show it to them, so hone your presentation skills and it'll take you a long way.

Associate Researcher co-op

May - August 2019 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I was assigned my own personal project I had to see through. I was very independent and had my own work to do, which gave me a lot of experience as if I was actually working there. It gave me a lot of new qualities that helped me grow as a worker. It was also a paid internship which is a plus!

What I wish was different

I wish I had more time to be there. But it was still a great experience.

Advice

It helped me get some real world experience and see what a real professional setting is like. I gained so many qualities and experiences in a small amount of time. I have grown in independence, leadership, computer and social skills.

What I wish was different

Advice

Definitely network before, during and after the internship. These connections will help you in gaining more information about the company and help you in moving forward.
