Georgia-Pacific

Supply Planning Intern

May - November 2019 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

Company culture is heavily emphasized here! People really care about you and your personal path, even if its not at Georgia-Pacific they want you to learn and be in a position you enjoy. As an intern I got to do a lot of traveling, going to 4 different states and multiple facilities over the course of the internship. They emphasize giving you practical/meaningful work

What I wish was different

I wish that I didn't have as much responsibility at times. It was more like a full-time job than an internship during some of the more hectic and busy weeks.

Advice

I was planning on taking time off of school and doing a co-op but the past 6 months have really helped me understand the business world. I highly recommend keeping an open mind to any possible experiences.

Process Engineer Intern

May - August 2019 • Green Bay, WI

What I liked

For my internship, I was on the Consumer Product Engineering team, meaning I traveled to Georgia-Pacific mills all across the country. It was an amazing experience to be able to travel as an intern and see different mills. I also really enjoyed the projects I was on, because I was able to learn about a lot of new technology and processes.

What I wish was different

I wish I was able to go to more mills and see how they all differ, however since it was just an internship there wasn't enough time.

Advice

My best advice is get out of your comfort zone and work on new and exciting projects. It is really rewarding when you have the opportunity to learn about a new piece of technology or something outside your general scoop.

Pricing

May - August 2018 • Green Bay, WI

What I liked

Good office experience, nice people, self-paced

What I wish was different

More interaction and more complex tasks, I wanted to be challenged and more intellectually stimulated

Advice

Know your way around excel and have something to listen to (music, podcasts, etc). It can get monotonous without something to listen to

Supply Chain Co-op

June - December 2017 • Easton, PA

What I liked

I learned so much about operations in a manufacturing environment. The hands on experience of working in a plant is so different than just learning material in a classroom. With this internship I was also given the opportunity to job shadow many other areas of the supply chain that I was interested in. I also was able to travel to other facilities and to corporate headquarters to see different perspectives within the company.

What I wish was different

I went into my internship only completing the Introduction to Supply Chain Management class. I came in with very little knowledge compared to other interns witch made it very difficult at first. However, I believe the amount I learned over the 6 month co-op gives me a good advantage to others in my class who have not completed co-ops.

Advice

Don't be afraid to reach out to your manager when you don't know something. Have the humility to admit you need help so you can move quicker through projects and create more value during your internship/co-op.

Co-Op Treasury Analyst

June 2017 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

Great culture, opportunities to learn with real value-adding projects.

What I wish was different

Better training during my first couple weeks.

Advice

Make personal connections with professors, they can get you opportunities. Atlanta has a smaller business social environment than you think.
