“It takes a team for any job to get done here at Cargill - we value team work just as highly as other skills. I would not be where I am at today without leadership and collaboration with the team.”
How much did you know about Cargill prior to applying? If so, what was your perception of it as a place to work?
I knew very little to nothing about Cargill. I had no prior intern/co-op experience with Cargill and did not know much about the company coming into my Full-Time position.
How has your internship challenged or prepared you for the next step in your career?
My experience here at Cargill so far has pushed me out of my comfort zone and has helped me grow technically and socially. I have leaned project management as an engineer, and how I can become better at managing projects and people. I have made outstanding connections with site leadership, engineering, and technicians with my time here. These connections will be beneficial for the rest of my career going forward.
How do you describe Cargill as both a company and employer to your friends and family?
People first culture! Cargill values its employees and ensures that everyone is completing tasks safely through their time here. They put safety above all else!
Have you been able to see the impact of your work/responsibilities?
I have been able to see my footprint on a lot of projects and task throughout the plant. I have found satisfaction in knowing that my work here has improved the workplace and jobs of others around me. It is good to know that my work is creating a bigger impact than just my team. And how we will continue to collaborate to make changes for the sake of efficiency, safety, and production.
