KICK OFF YOUR CAREER AT ONE OF THE

BEST PLACES TO WORK IN AMERICA

GARRETT INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

(Or GIP as we like to call it)

THE PROGRAM

Every summer The Garrett Companies hosts a field of select interns for our Garrett Internship Program (we call it GIP). This a premier internship experience – and is second to none in the fields of Real Estate Development, Construction, Accounting, and Communications.  Each year we assess our needs for help – and our ability to provide an incredible learning experience for our summer interns. We expect interns to come in, observe, learn, absorb, and do actual work in their fields of study. 

 

We will build your resume, confidence, and experiences so that you are ready for the phase that starts after you graduate! Much like school – a portion of your experience will simply be learning how to work as an individual that is part of team and how to communicate with all levels and departments.  On that note – there is also a few “learning sessions” and the expectation that you will be able to summarize what you accomplished over the course of the summer! 

THIS IS NOT A PROGRAM WHERE YOU SHOW UP, HIDE IN A CUBE, AND NOBODY TALKS TO YOU

 You will work with your department, and create and accomplish work that builds value for our team.  We want you to learn, but we also want you to work! 

The most notable part of this program? We will share with you every step in the Real Estate Development and Construction Process.  No matter your course of study – you will be part of a series of learning sessions so that you can better understand all the inner working parts of this industry – from site selection and concept planning to construction, operations, and branding.  This will be an intro into what makes this industry work!

The program lasts all Summer and space is always limited.  This year we pleased to announce that we have 9 openings!   

Note:  We coordinate with your school when necessary – for programs that require formal internships as well. 

 

Oh – there are some perks too!

  • The Pay: $14 (hourly). Hey – an internship that pays! You will be required to fill out a Work Log weekly (if you want to get paid of course).

  • 401K: Yep. You get one! After you set it up, we will deposit a 3% pay match that you can convert to an IRA following the program!

  • Yoga (HQ Only): If you intern at our HQ – we do Yoga once a week (Thursdays). It’s free and is led by a professional 3rd party instructor. Bring a mat.

  • Gym Membership: We have a 24-hour fitness center onsite – with locker room. You will be given a key fob to access the gym 24 hours a day while you work here.

  • Barber (On Site): Every two weeks our in house barber comes! $10 (plus tip) for the greatest haircut you can get while on the clock! 

  • Oil Changes (in Parking Lot): Once a month. Great pricing. You pay – but it’s sooo convenient!​

THE PERKS

​​

  • Free Lunches: Not every day, but there are lots of them. Who says there is no such thing as a free lunch? We pay you to eat food. 

  • Best Place to Work in the USA: Don’t take our word for it…do a little research.  We win these awards year after year. 

  • Summer Fridays:  You have the option of working half days on Friday during the summer (just like the rest of our team. Unlike our team though….you don’t get paid for leaving early).
