Why did you decide to intern with LW?
After interviewing with LW and a few other companies, it seemed like the LW internship would offer a wider variety of experiences.
What did you enjoy the most about your internship?
I enjoyed seeing the different sides of a landscaping business and getting hands-on experience with each part of the company. I also enjoyed the flexibility and getting to move from crew to crew.
What did you learn from your internship with LW?
I saw how important it is for different parts of a large business to come together to form a successful company.
What would you tell other students considering an internship with LW?
I highly recommend it because you really see the different parts of the company. Everyone, from what I could tell, works as a family and gets along, which is extremely important.
