The Boeing Company

Avionics and Cabin Displays Intern

May - August 2018 • Everett, WA

What I liked

The Boeing Company was amazing to work for, from the pay to the benefits to what I did on a day to day basis. I was not given irrelevant work during my time at the company - everything that I did will impact the final product. My team and the environment there was amazing as well. There is a full network of ERAU individuals at Boeing who work to bring special events, mentoring, and other opportunities to you.

What I wish was different

My team in particular had a lot of problems at a higher level, so I didn't always get the most challenging work, especially since I had previous experience from a supplier.

Advice

If you can get an offer - any offer - with Boeing, please take it, even if it's not what you want to do! This wasn't necessarily what I wanted to do, but it helped me land my dream internship with the company.

Mechanical Engineering Intern

June - August 2018 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

The Boeing Company was an outstanding company to work for. Everyone was so welcoming and willing to teach and help me through the internship process. I was also able to contribute to real projects that had potential to impact the company and operations. It was a nice mix of business cases and technical projects.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have been allowed to use programs such as CATIA and ENOVIA. Since I did not have experience with these specific programs they would have to put me through training which would have taken a week off of my 10-week internship.

Advice

Network as much as you can while you are there. There are so many different career opportunities you can learn about and everyone is happy to tell you about their past experiences and give you advice on how to be a successful engineer.

What I wish was different

The commute from my house. Everything was great!

Advice

Take as many opportunities as you can while you’re on the job, i.e. network with coworkers, get involved with shadowing experiences (find out what different roles people in the company perform) if you can. DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK QUESTIONS. It’s okay if you don’t know things, you’re there to learn!

Financial Operations Analyst Intern

May - August 2018 • St. Charles, MO

What I liked

My summer at Boeing was absolutely phenomenal. It was full of very challenging & interesting projects and intern roles and responsibilities. I felt valued by my coworkers and manager! There was never a lack of individuals that were willing to meet with me for informational interviews about their division/function/or history with the company. Also worth noting, it was like working for a small company, with big company benefits. Great coworkers, mentors, and managers, while also having very competitive wages, 401k, vacation, and sick leave compensation packages.
