What Have Our Interns Been up to?
Interns at our Lakeville, Minn. headquarters enjoyed a lunch meeting with CEO & President Nicolas Catoggio and Chief Growth Officer TD Dixon.
This summer, Post Consumer Brands hosted 18 interns as a part of our 2022 internship program. These 18 employees worked across various locations and departments. As the program drew to a close, we asked interns to share their experience and highlights from their summer spent with us.
From managing exciting projects to improving sustainability, here are just a few examples of what our interns accomplished this summer.
Emma Camlek, Packaging R&D Intern at our Lakeville, MN office
“I worked on projects focused on sustainability, and cost savings. During my experience, I was able to spend time learning about different packaging structures and material characteristics as well as how each structure would be affected by different packaging machinery. This fall I will be returning to the University of Wisconsin – Stout to finish up my degree in packaging.”
Zoe Roberts, Food Science Intern at our Asheboro, NC Plant
“Throughout the summer I worked on various projects that allowed me to work cross-functionally with the Quality Assurance and Engineering departments. Specifically, I worked on cost savings projects with the continuous improvement manager. This was my first experience working for a manufacturing plant and I learned a lot from it.”
Will Broshears, Reliability Intern at our Campbell Mill Plant in Northfield, MN
“Over the summer I worked with members of the Maintenance and Reliability team at the Campbell Mill on various projects, which included contacting suppliers to get quotes, working on capital projects, and shadowing Reliability Techs. The employees I worked with were very supportive and were always eager to help answer any questions I had. My internship at Post was a great way for me to get hands-on experience and apply what I’ve been learning in school, which was by far the best part about working in a manufacturing environment full of complex machinery.”
Amy Gilbert, Engineering Intern at our Sparks, NV Plant
“As an intern, I worked on multiple projects and budget evaluations, collaborated with contractors on planning and creating quotes. Other projects included working on a new dust containment hood in the packaging room, purchasing a new yard tractor, replacement of mill building windows, new safety railings, and creating inventory spreadsheets on different machines and magnets. The highlight of my internship was being able to lead many projects from start to finish. It was a rewarding feeling to research and plan, then watch the process throughout, and bring the project to completion.”
Annie Stang, Brand Marketing Intern in our Lakeville, MN office
“This summer I had the pleasure of working on the Brand Marketing team supporting our Natural and Organic Brands. I did a deep dive into the Natural and Organic snacking category and provided recommendations based on my findings. A highlight of my summer at PCB was leading the team on a store walk to look at our products in a variety of grocery store settings. I am grateful to the many Post employees that went above and beyond to make it a great internship experience.”
