I worked at Renewable Energy Systems, Inc. (Less than a year)
The overall environment of the workplace was very rewarding and helped me to learn and grow as an intern with the company. There were individuals on the project who helped me understand the different processes that went into constructing a wind farm as well as how to work well with others and be successful in the work place.
While my time on the project was very rewarding and beneficial there were some downsides to where I worked. When I first arrived because I was working along side the field administrative assistant and was placed in a trailer inputting data on a computer program for about 3-4 weeks. There would be times where I would be sitting in the trailer for 6-7 hours with nothing to do because the task I was placed with took me no more than 2 hours to complete . With that being said RES replaced the project engineer on site with a new project engineer. Once that change was made I was able to work alongside him and that helped me to grow exponentially as an employee and helped to gain knowledge about the project from many different angles.
