    I worked at FreightCar America


    Very new plant and a lot of quality engineering work for an i tern. The engineers were very engaging and helpful. Some tasks were tedious, but thats part of being an intern. Overall great internship.


    Cherokee, Al. Not having a trike in a plant that is a mile long. Not much to complain about.
