Live. Learn. Work. Play. The exact four categories I would want out of any internship. From day to day work, to touching the lives of so many consumers, Newell stands by these four pillars in everything they do – especially the summer internship!
From e-commerce in New York to Sales in Seattle, Newell offers so many internship locations to provide you with whatever opportunity is best for you. I spent my summer in the Atlanta, Georgia, office. This was the most ideal location for me to till be close to my home in Florida, but live a big city lifestyle. With flexible work hours, I could explore the city and make the most of my time hereLearn
I have never worked in a corporate environment before, so I was able to learn about the business world, along with how much effort goes into product development. While I spent my summer on the brand development team, I learned about every function at Newell. Throughout the entire internship, all interns were given the opportunity to meet with other functions and participate in various lunch and learns.Work
The best part about an internship with Newell is that you are given the opportunity to take ownership of meaningful work. Your time will be spent working on a Hero Project that serves a real business need, along with day to day team tasks. Here lies the opportunity to work with employees of other functions to help build your research and to strengthen your professional connections at Newell.
I have had the most invaluable time here and have made great friendships by getting to spend so much time with other interns! From events like a Braves game and CycleBar, to weekly snack attacks and everyday life at the intern table, my summer internship has truly followed the motto ‘work hard, play hard.
