“My startup at TRUE was not the typical internship as I was hired full time in the factory. However, I was given the opportunity to work with the Engineering staff after a couple months of working on the job. The training period consisted of working both on the floor and in the office learning the proper practices that the Engineering Dept. followed and instituted within the manufacturing environment. TRUE allowed me to work one-on-one with the Engineers a couple days a week to get hands on experience, utilize my degree, and have direct involvement with decisions that would impact the floor and fabrication of the units. The internship was very beneficial in my growth as a person and insight on what the engineering field consisted of. It allowed TRUE to evaluate my potential for full time employment in the Engineering Dept. as well as allowed me to assess the manufacturing environment to make a decision for my future occupation. Due to the superb experience I had within my internship at TRUE it was an easy decision on my future direction of employment and I continue to grow within the company as a Full Time Production Engineer. It also generated a new requirement in the dept. that all new hires are to work on the production floor to get an understanding of how the manufacturing process works and the direct impact decisions have on the assembly process.”
