Manufacturing Operator

May - August 2020 • Penfield, NY

What I liked

The job itself was simple, and as for the social aspect I enjoyed getting to know my coworkers.

What I wish was different

I worked the night shift, which was pretty understaffed. This caused some minor confusion and shuffling in daily assignments.

Advice

The night shift is not for everyone, and especially for long term (I was a summer contract worker). If you find the work fulfilling, you can find opportunities to make your career with the company.

Sales Analyst Intern

May - August 2019 • Logan, UT

What I liked

This was an inside look into the operations of a multi-national corporation. It is one thing to learn about these kinds of companies in books, but to see them in person is quite another. The levels of organization, the methods of communication, and the level of professional were astounding. An eye opening experience to say the least.

What I wish was different

It was a great team and a great environment to work in. I would not have changed a thing.

Advice

Learn as much as you can in the time you have to be with Thermo Fisher. There are great networking events to become a part and many great people who can mentor you for years to come. It is an experience, so do all that you can to experience all that you can.

Really great experience. Made an awesome web app.

What I wish was different

Accounting Intern

May - August 2019 • Rochester, NY

What I liked

It was a great experience to see how private accounting works and to see the work environment. I improved my skills in excel tremendously and will be able to use that in the future.

What I wish was different

Halfway through my internship my work load was cut in half, which led to me having very boring work days where I would not have anything to do.

Advice

If you are unsure about anything ask questions and write everything down so you do not forget. I referenced my notes for everything I did to ensure I was doing the work correctly, and if I was not sure I would ask questions.
