Swoboda Inc

Engineering Intern (Technician)

May - August 2019 • Grand Rapids, MI

What I liked

I liked how hard everyone worked and how clean the plant was. I could tell safety and organization were important here. Quantity of parts is important for any manufacturing plant, but it was impressive to see the expectations for parts at Swoboda. They do a surprising amount of testing, both automated and by hand.

What I wish was different

I did not get a chance to do design work during my short time there, which is something that interests me.


Ask questions, be honest about what you know, and always work hard, even when no one is looking. Engineers (especially the older ones) really appreciate these qualities. These are humble ways to stick out. Swoboda expects a lot from its employees.
