JULY 2016 – From 22 different colleges and universities, Garney hired a record-breaking group of 64 interns and co-op students for the summer term. This group is working on project sites nationwide and in several offices alongside project management, estimating, and marketing. During the term, undergraduates receive exposure to Garney’s culture, the employee stock ownership plan (ESOP), and a number of different business functions including safety, scheduling, quality control, estimating, and labor relations.
Garney’s objective is to provide a positive learning experience that allows undergraduates to gain an understanding of the industry as well as Garney’s method of conducting business. The internship program has been a mainstay for Garney for nearly 30 years and falls in line with the company’s consistent growth driven by new opportunities and a strong market.
Many of Garney’s current employee-owners started their careers through the company’s internship program. Garney strives to seek individuals who thrive when given the opportunity to learn and lead, which often translates to hiring directly from our internship program. Interested in building with Garney?
