    I worked at Shaw Industries as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The company has done a great job with the co-op program. They provide valuable feedback that will help you improve yourself as a professional in the future. Fun activities help co-ops interact with one another. Great location if you are into the outdoors.

    Cons

    The main headquarters are located in a very small town with not much to do. Other cities are pretty close by and provide plenty of activities during the co-op program.
