We’re looking for interns who are currently enrolled in an accredited college or university with a GPA of at least 3.0 for the winter, summer, or fall terms.

Dog-friendly workplace

We invite well-behaved dogs to accompany their parents to work in several of our facilities. Having Rambo, Marley, Biff, Jasper and the rest of our furry friends with us in the office not only leads to a more pleasant and productive work environment, but encourages our employees to get to know each other better through their pets. We believe that allowing our canine companions to visit with our employees once every week also boosts morale and lowers stress in the form of a happily wagging tail, a quick ear-scratch and lots of love to their owners and their colleagues.

Please consult Insitu Human Resources or the Insitu Employee Handbook to learn more about our dog-friendly workplace policy before bringing a dog to our facilities.

9/80 Active Fridays

At Insitu we strive to promote a fun and flexible work environment for our employees. To accomplish this, a majority of our company operates on a 9/80 schedule, meaning work hours are distributed to allow most of our employees to have every other Friday off. In addition to allowing for a better work/life balance, we aim to help our employees take advantage of the awesome places we call home on these off-Fridays through our 9/80 Active Friday Program, which provides various events for Insitu employees free of charge. Windsurfing, wine tasting, waterfall hikes, sternwheeler cruises on the Columbia River and sailing in the Bay Area are just a few examples of Active Fridays our employees have gotten to enjoy thus far.

Availability of the 9/80 schedule and Active Friday program is dependent on individual employee duties and responsibilities. Potential new hires should discuss participation in this program with Insitu Human Resources.

    I have been working at Insitu full-time (Less than a year)


    Solid colleagues here-everyone is so kind and supportive. The culture is one of success and caring. They have four pillars to the culture and they walk the talk when it comes to culture. When I joined I could never have predicted how happy I am today. It takes a leap of faith to join a company like this that isn't a big consumer name but I love that I'm part of something with a great mission.


    Lots of acronyms. Get the app and it gets easier. Snow and ice in the gorge can be a bummer.

    Advice to Management

    Keep focus on transparency. Have high expectations of employees.

    Easy Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Insitu (Bingen, WA) in June 2016.


    Was flown to Bingen for the Interview. I was sent a schedule of who would meet me where for the different parts and the first person was not available. The employees recovered quickly and sent me to the correct location for the interview. Interview was very proffessional and lasted approximately 1 hour.
