    I worked at Klein Tools full-time

    Pros

    Engineers and production workers always willing to cooperate and help out as long as you asked. Easy to get time off as long as you requested it in a reasonable amount of time. Great employee tool discount, even for interns.

    Cons

    Structure of internship program did not seem well thought out. Was often left to find my own work to do. As a first time intern, I could have used a little more guidance. Supervisor also came off as abrasive which was not conducive to seeking him out. Facility lacked a few full time engineers and tried to make up for it with interns.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Klein Tools (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Well managed throughout the process. The questions were more about fit within the culture. It was a very relaxing conversation vs. a constant grinding out of typical questions. Met with several functional groups throughout the day.
