Former Student engineer at Southwest Research Institute
about 2 years ago
Day to day life was great. The work day starts at 8:00 AM, worked until lunch (with a tea/coffee break or two in the breakroom with another student or my mentor). Often, the students would go out to lunch together either at the on-site cafeteria or one of the nearby spots, since there was an hour allocated for lunch. On Fridays, lunch was a seminar hosted by one of the divisions demonstrating what they do. After work, most people leave at 5, you can stick around and play one of the intramural sports with other employees or we’d go home to our student housing where all of the interns lived.
