The company’s internship program was recognized in the categories of best internships for the retail and consumer products industry and also top engineering roles.
“Our internship program is an excellent opportunity for those looking to build a career with us and experience all that working for an industry-leading Fortune 500 company can offer. We’re currently recruiting interns to start with us over the summer of 2023 for our manufacturing facilities, sales offices and corporate locations,” said Amy Sheehan, director of talent acquisition at Hormel Foods. “Those who are interested and want to make a difference by feeding families around the world can view our current openings and apply at hormelfoods.com/careers.”
Vault-Firsthand was charged with compiling the ranking, surveying more than 10,800 current and former interns in summer 2022. They were asked to rate their internship experiences in several areas:
· Industry and employment factors
· Quality of life (company culture, hours, work-life balance, flexibility)
· Interview press (application process, requirements, number of interviews)
· Career development (including four separate ratings for training and mentoring, quality of assignments, real-life experience, networking opportunities)
· Full-time employment prospects (opportunity to obtain a full-time job with this organization)
· Diversity (including four separate ratings for diversity with respect to women, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBTQ+ individuals and other underrepresented groups)
This is not the first time the Hormel Foods internship program has been awarded for giving students valuable experiences. In addition to previous mentions from Vault and others, the company was praised nationwide when it quickly developed a virtual internship program in spring 2020, when COVID-19 was causing most major companies to rescind their internship offers altogether. Hormel Foods has a long-standing track record of hiring interns after graduation to full-time positions with the company.
