Pentair

Supply and Operations Summer Intern

May - August 2022 • Sanford, NC

What I liked

I really enjoyed the autonomy of their internship. I was able to work on engaging projects at my own pace. The people here are great and helpful and also understand that as interns we do not know everything.

What I wish was different

Advice

Take advantage of every resource available. There are mentoring, shadowing, intern meet-ups, and many other opportunities to grow as a professional. I recommend taking advantage of these as they will set you up for success within the internship and for your long-term career.

Research & Development Co-op

June - August 2019 • Brookfield, WI

What I liked

I liked working for a water company, because water is integral to life. I felt like my contributions helped people. I also learned a lot about the water industry, and I was able to apply things I learned in school. I also learned a valuable lesson about running experiments in a laboratory versus real-life performance.

What I wish was different

I wish that I could have traveled to other Pentair research labs. I also wish that there was also more inter-department communication.

Advice

My advice would be to familiarize yourself with all pertinent terminology as quickly as possible. Clear communication about different facets of the projects is key. And to ask for help.
