Co-op named a Top 100 Internship Program in 2022

To make the Top 100 list, internship programs from across the country were judged on the following criteria:


  • Diversity & inclusion
  • Compensation & perks
  • Program orientation & structure
  • Career development for interns
  • Full-time employment prospects
  • Company culture & engagement
  • Unique aspects of the program


We are very proud of this accomplishment and will continue to utilize the feedback from our interns to make the program better and better each year.

Hear from our employees that started as interns

Emily
What surprised you about Co-op and the internship program?
​​​​​​​

What surprised me most was how flexible and welcoming everyone was. My manager gave me a lot of flexibility in when I worked and how I got my responsibilities done. I was also surprised with how much "work" I got to do. You often hear of interns not being able to contibute much, but that was not the case here!

What made you choose Co-op as the place you wanted to intern?
​​​​​​​

It was a combination of two things that led me to Co-op: recruiters and the company's reputation. I had two great interactions with Co-op recruiters at the career fair and in my classroom. After doing some research and speaking to a couple current employees, a theme emerged. Co-op treats their employees with respect and invests in them through training and opportunities.

How has the internship at Co-op prepared you for the future/your career goals?

I joined the program following my sophomore year. I had no idea if I was interested in Marketing, Sales, Communications, or something else in-between. My internship exposed me to different departments within Co-op and I got to work with leaders from all over the company. Since being hired at the end of my internship, I have been exposed to more within Co-op and can now identify what I want to do in the future here!

What do you enjoy about working at Co-op?
​​​​​​​

What I enjoy about working at Co-op is that you're not treated like an employee- you're treated like a person, and they understand the importance of work/life balance.
