    Intern Testimonials:

      David- Customer Care Intern

      My summer internship with SICK has been a character-building and intellectually challenging experience for many reasons. As an intern, I was given meaningful projects that will have an impact on SICK in the future. The culture at SICK is a positive one where I feel included and comfortable. Throughout the summer the other interns and I were able to form friendships and connections by going to happy hours, street festivals, hiking at the Minnehaha Falls, and just hanging out together. Over the summer I faced challenges and learning curves that had to be overcome by immersing myself in the tools that I was given. At the end of my summer, I will take with me the technical and professional skills I've developed over the past three months and many positive memories with my managers, coworkers, and friends.


      Eli- Customer Care Intern

      In 2018 SICK management allocated $150K to the Customer Care division for a 2019 capital expense to make improvements to the department. I did not assist with this effort, I led this effort. I was tasked with investigating how to best spend these funds and summarize my findings in a recommendation report. Upon completion of my analysis, my supervisors forwarded my recommendations to the SICK executive management team. SICK management accepted those recommendations and approved the expenses outlined in my reports. My internship had real project management experience with real capital. I had the ability and freedom to reach outside of my department to get things done with no restrictions. I was always treated with respect which is to say, treated as a SICK team member.

      Sagar- Customer Care Intern

      As my first internship in the United States, I learned a lot and enhanced my knowledge using different tools. I think SICK is the best place to do an internship at, as you gain a lot of knowledge and it sets up a platform for you to show your skills and enhance them. I learned a lot from other interns as we had intern collaboration every week which helped with different projects and implementations that are going on in the industry.

      Walaa- Data Analytics Intern
      I learned more than I ever expected. As my internship draws to a close and I reflect on all I have learned, I realize what an excellent experience this has been especially if the topic is Industry 4.0. Having a hands-on approach while finding a real solution for common problems has been invaluable because the best way to learn is by doing. This experience has only gotten me more excited to continue in this field for my career and I am truly grateful for this opportunity. It's amazing to find yourself in a place where there are no limits for achieving more.
