Lamb Weston

Digital Marketing Intern

June - August 2021 • Eagle, ID

What I liked

I had an amazing summer with Lamb Weston. Everyone is so open and willing to help the interns which is not what I expected going into it. It was great experience being able to work full-time for a public, global company and getting a feel into what true office life is like. Every intern was assigned their "intern projects" for the summer that we worked on. My mentors were amazing support systems and could not have provided me with anything better. They placed the trust in me to do my work independently but were always there to help out if needed. I got some great marketing experience from this summer that I don't think I could've received elsewhere.

Advice

Go in with an open mind. The days and weeks are long with working full-time, but everyone is there to support and assist you in anyway they can. Everyone is willing to speak with the interns, so I reached out to as many people as I could to hear about what they each do in their day-to-day life to learn about the different aspects of Marketing, and I would definitely advise future interns to do the same.

Ag Operations Intern

May - September 2021 • Twin Falls, ID

What I liked

Great work-life balance, excellent mentorship, great atmosphere. Lots of happy employees. Great opportunities for learning and growth, with feedback all along the way. Not a typical internship, as the intern will be expected to contribute the success of the assigned team and company.

Advice

Come with an open mind and ready to ask questions. The internship will largely be what you make of it. The company will give you freedom to learn as much as you want if you show interest.

Intern

June - August 2021 • Eagle, ID

What I liked

I enjoyed the people I worked with and the projects I got to work on. All the people were super kind and understanding. They were always willing to answer any questions and help me learn. The projects I got to work on had a real value that I was able to see and I was able to see and understand their impact.

What I wish was different

If I could go back and do it all again. I would have reached out to learn from more people. I also would have tried to get involved with more projects, so I could learn from them.

Advice

Try to meet with as many people as you can, and learn from all the leaders around you.

ERP intern

May 2019 • Eagle, ID

What I liked

Since day one, I felt like I was part of the company, treated as a regular employee. I traveled with the team and participated in meetings, workshops, and training. The internship program is structured to promote integration between the interns and provides the opportunity to connect with multiple areas throughout the company.

What I wish was different

A formal feedback session during the program would be helpful.

Advice

Be curious, reach out to people with questions. Talk to your team and explore ways you can help them, don't just wait for activities.

Validation Assistant

June - August 2019 • Richland, WA

What I liked

I loved the area; the Tri-Cities is a fantastic place! I also enjoyed the working conditions, and my coworkers - all fabulous people. It was awesome learning more about the potato, and how it is processed into a french fry, along with all of the variables that go into it. It was great learning more about the food industry, and Lamb's vision.

What I wish was different

I wish I didn't have to work through a temporary employment agency, which was a bit of a hassle.

Advice

Learn everything you can about the company you're working for! You never know what kind of experiences you'll have.

Marketing Intern

October 2018 • Eagle, ID

What I liked

I have a current intern position at Lamb Weston, and I am loving it. I found the job on Handshake and the platform made it so easy to share my background with the company.

What I wish was different

So far - nothing!

Advice

Do NOT be afraid to put yourself out there and take chances - whether that is applying for a position that you think might be out of your reach, looking in different types of fields, etc. I am so glad I was able to apply for this position through Handshake, and I hope that other students jump at these kinds of opportunities.
