IT Developer Intern

June - August 2020 • Wichita, KS

What I liked

I liked that the company did its best to keep the internship going despite issues with covid. Everyone I met seemed to really enjoy working there and they were all good people.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship would have lasted longer so I could interact with the team more. Covid cut the internship length in half and I was only able to talk to a portion of my team in person because most were working remotely.

Supply Chain Intern

May - August 2019 • Wichita, KS

What I liked

The company told me from day one that it was my internship and to take ownership of the entire experience. I had the chance to work on meaningful projects that would truly haveb.can impact on the company. All of my peers were helpful to me as an intern. There were many opportunities to tour different facilities, shadow other roles and attend company networking events. At the end of the summer, all interns present their projects to the management team.

What I wish was different

I wish there were co-op positions available. Most of the roles are summer internships.

Advice

Take the chance to network within the company and shadow other roles. Be ready to work. Textron will challenge you. Even if you fail, learn from it. They want to see how you handle pressure and ambiguity.
