    The workers are friendly and helpful. My boss would give me manageable assignments and it would be up to me to finish them by the deadline. You can work from home if needed and the hours can be flexible. I would work more during the beginning of the week and leave early on Fridays.


    The work can get a bit boring and repetitive, but that can be expected of an intern position. The office is pretty dim, but they do plan on renovating the office floor this fall.

    Advice to Management

    From what I could tell, the company was somewhat disorganized and people were unwilling to take on projects that would save time and money in the long run.

    Difficult Interview


    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Manitowoc Co. in October 2014.


    I got set up for an interview through a recruiting company. They called me asking me if i was interested in this position. The position required a lot of CAD work and to work on the production floor. The interview process started with a 15-20 minute call with the recruiter asking me about my experience and why I would qualify for this position. So after the interview, she asked for 3 references. I sent her the references. Then, i got a call from her asking me she would like to set me up for an interview with the hiring manager. A week later, I arrived for the interview. The recruiter was there. The manager later arrived to get me and we went to an office along with another manager. I sat on the chair and everyone was silent so I started the conversation. After explaining a little about myself they asked me a couple of questions but I was pretty much doing most of the talking. Halfway into the interview, the lady manager started playing on her phone while the guy manager kept yawning every few seconds. I just kept asking myself, am i really that boring?? Anyways, the interview room was reserved for about 2 hours and the interview actually only lasted about 20 minutes. I sort off knew there was going to be no offer because of the interest they showed in me halfway into the interview. I contacted the recruiter a few days later and she told me that they didn't want to make an offer at this time because I had mentioned I didn't want to do any hands-on work. This is totally wrong and didn't make any sense because I told them I was very interested in being part of the production process, not just the design.
