I worked at Lycoming Engines as an intern (Less than a year)
With this being my first internship, I was very satisfied! The people here were so friendly and always willing to help. I was nervous that I wasn’t prepared, but all my fears went away after the first few days. My internship class was about 25 people and we were always doing stuff together outside of work. Interns had a lot of freedom (even interns had flexibility in their schedules) and management genuinely cares about your professional growth and development. They try to retain talent so if you do a good job, you could possibly leave with a job offer from any Textron location! And they let you know before the internship is over if you have an offer which is great.
I don’t have many cons. As a supply chain intern, I wish I could’ve worked in more areas of the supply chain rather than just the department I was placed in. And there were some days I wish I could have had more work to do. Other than that, there was really no cons from my experience.
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Lycoming Engines (Williamsport, PA) in April 2015.
Interview process was panel style, with hands on testing with measurement devices and engine parts. I later found out that the job title I interviewed for was absolutely not going to apply to my labor, and that my FAA licenses would not be in use at all. Huge negative mark there.
