Advice to ManagementAdvice

Everything has changed since Mr. Milliken passed away. Not the same company that was interested in the employees.

    I worked at Milliken as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Very organized with their hiring process and internship program. Great people. There's always good food! I wasn't treated like an intern, I was treated like a real employee and given an actual project to complete myself.

    Cons

    Must work in manufacturing before you can work in product development, but only because they want you to get a true understanding of the processing until you can develop the products.
