Featured Review

Current Intern - EngineeringCAE

I have been working at Polaris for less than a year

Pros

Great Company! Great perks. Full-time employees can check out vehicles. These include slingshot, ATV, RZR, General, Ranger, Indian Motorcycles, etc. If you are an intern you only get to drive on... Polaris Property once. However you can ride as a passenger as much as you want so find some other employees that would be willing to take you on a few 20 minute drives or so. It is a lot of fun. Also if you are friends with a full-time employee they can check out a vehicle and once its off of Polaris property any one can sign an electronic waiver and drive it. You can also drive on any county roads north of Wyoming without having to register the off-road vehicle. Polaris treated me extremely well and I am going back.

Cons

Can't think of any off the top of my head.
