Valmont Industries, Inc.

Market Research Intern

November 2020 - May 2021 • Omaha, NE

What I liked

I enjoyed being able to meet other employees and add to my network. I enjoyed the autonomy of my position and I was able to do market research about environmental social governance and its impact on our world. That was probably my favorite project. Flexible hours and a very kind and understanding boss.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been given more projects, I felt like sometimes I was just waiting around to be given a task, even after reaching out to my boss and trying to stay busy on the clock. I also wanted more structure in the internship and to have more meetings.

Advice

My advice would be to take in everything Valmont gives you access to, such as Valmont University. I went through many training programs that will advance me in my personal career. I am Agile Certified now, thanks to them.

Human Resources Intern

December 2018 - May 2019 • Valley, NE

What I liked

I loved the hands-on experience that my internship allowed me to have. I was also offered a full-time opportunity when I graduated in May. The culture was one of the main reasons I decided to stay with the company permanently!

What I wish was different

Nothing, Valmont has a great internship program where students can learn about different areas of the business and gain meaningful experience.

Advice

Make the most out of your internship. Valmont will provide you with the tools and mentorship to complete your duties, but expects their interns to take initiative to go above and beyond to complete projects and tasks!

E-Learning Instructional Design Intern

June 2019 • Valley, NE

What I liked

I really enjoyed the people there. They're helpful, kind and don't make you do "typical intern things." I also liked that I was doing the actual job not just simple sideline items. They were teaching me the ins and outs of the work and how to do it well.

What I wish was different

I honestly don't have any complaints about the job itself. The hours were very flexible, people great, and I loved the work. The only thing is that the Intern experience at Valmont felt a little disorganized but my internship was also a bit different than the others so that is probably why.

Advice

Be open to changing your ways. The people there know what they are talking about, so listen and don't get too trapped in your own style but be willing to adapt and learn something new.

Take any internship. Every job and experience is worth it and teaches you so much about industry.

Global Marketing Intern

January 2019 • Omaha, NE

What I liked

Valmont provides me the opportunity to work on real projects and take ownership in everything I have done. Valmont provides me with mentorship and opportunities to work and learn with Senior leadership within the company. I have the ability to learn from people across the company and across the world. Because Valmont is a global company, I get to work and learn from people all over the world on any project. My managers instill trust in me to work on real projects that have a big impact on the company. I love Valmont because I get the chance to learn new skills and further develop the skills I have.

What I wish was different

I don't really wish much was different in my internship experience at Valmont. Managers help you make the most of your internship and if you want a new experience, they are ready to help you change things up.

Advice

If you want to intern somewhere that will challenge you to be the best version of yourself, Valmont is for you. Be ready to be challenged, grow, and perform. Internships at Valmont give you real-world experience to help you learn and grow. Valmont internships give what you put into it. You will be exposed to new ideas, new people, and new opportunities if you choose to.
