What is it like to intern for WMR? "I didn’t plan on coming back to WMR this summer. In fact, I didn’t plan on having this internship last summer either. I prefer the medical side of engineering. This internship fell into my lap last summer, and I thought, “I just need experience in mechanical engineering, and this would get me that experience.” So I took the opportunity. It was the best thing for me. I met amazing, kind people who answered all of my questions (and I ask a lot of questions). This company has been so welcoming, so encouraging, so willing to help me learn. I have a sheet of paper on which I have written the lessons I’ve learned from multiple people here at the Plymouth plant. I never expected to be in the metals recycling business. I never expected to be doing this kind of work, but I am so grateful for the time I have spent and will spend because I’m learning lessons I wouldn’t have learned in the other internships I had wanted." -Dianne Althouse

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at Western Metals Recycling (New York, NY)


    Met a recruiter at my college career fair, first interview was an informal phone call with a regional manager who asked general questions about me and what I've done leading up to now, second interview was also on the phone since I wasn't located near their headquarters, third interview I was flown to Kansas City and all of my expenses were paid for. During the third interview I spoke with several people all with different job titles. Everyone was very nice, interested in learning about me, and shared as much as they could about the position and company.

    Talk to me about your work experiences and extra curricular activities throughout high school and college.
