What Interns Have Said About F&V
F&V presented me with meaningful, relevant, and at times, challenging work, all of which has helped me to grow as an engineering student. The work has also given me a chance to gain valuable insight into the roles of consulting engineer. Beyond work, I really appreciated how social and inviting everyone was. The work you provided me was enjoyable, but the social events and personalities that I got to work with made this internship that much better. I had no idea that F&V was so focused on promoting a strong social culture, and I found it to be a strong additional selling point over my brief time here.
Scott H, 3 Summers, Full-Time Employee
As an intern at F&V, I really appreciated how helpful and kind everyone was. They welcomed me as a part of the team and made my experience very enjoyable! I was surprised by how many projects I was able to get my hands in, and I barely scratched the surface of the diversity of projects managed by F&V. It was a wonderful experience for my first internship!
Stephanie F, 1 Summer
My favorite part about working for F&V would definitely be my coworkers. As an intern, I came in not knowing much about the type of engineering services provided here. And as such, everybody I talked to, whether it be in my office or other offices, was always willing to answer any questions I had without hesitation. F&V is a fantastic company to work for, and the clients that we work with are always friendly and outgoing, which makes my job even better.
Blake N, 1 Summer, Full-Time Employee
I really enjoyed all of the projects that I was able to be a part of. Not only did I get the opportunity to see a wide variety, but also projects that were in many different stages. This allowed me to be able to see the whole process of a project even without being able to follow a project from start to finish. Similarly, the employees at F&V are just so fantastic to work with that they make the days fly by and very enjoyable.
Niklas B, 1 Summer
F&V provided me with just the right challenge. In my role, I was given independence to complete my work while still enjoying a team environment and with plenty of assistance from technical leaders.
Devin H, 1 Summer
Interning with F&V allowed me to be involved in many aspects of the engineering project process. All of the employees were enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge and expertise. I was surprised by how quickly I felt a part of the F&V community, in part due to the kickball team. Everyone was so welcoming.
Peter D, 2 Summers, Full-Time Employee
The hiring process with F&V was very efficient and I enjoyed the fact that the company was busy and was able to get me working on engineering tasks immediately. F&V is very family/life oriented, and it was effortless to complete my last semester of college while beginning my career at F&V. This allowed me to not miss a beat once I went full-time after graduation, and I was constantly learning new things and being challenged to grow. It was easy to get assistance when needed as well since the office environment with co-workers was inviting and positive. All around great experience for me and I am thankful to be working with F&V full-time.
Timothy B, 1 Summer, Full-Time Employee
I learned a lot from all of my coworkers on different processes. Everything from lagoons to mechanical treatment plants and how the chemistry and bio all comes together. Everyone has been so kind, explaining things to me so I can understand the full process.
Emma G, 1 Summer
I really appreciated the amount of help I was able to get from my coworkers. They were always there to help and helped me develop my skills throughout the summer.
Jacob K, 1 Summer
I’ve had the opportunity to work on quite a few cool projects. One project that I’ve enjoyed is called a road diet study. We’re doing it a small town called Jonesville, Michigan. Through the downtown is a 5-lane thoroughfare that carries a lot of vehicles, and we’re looking at converting it from a 5-lane to a 3-lane roadway. What’s cool about the project is we’re taking away space from vehicles to bump out the sidewalks and add bicycle lanes, giving more space to pedestrians and bicyclists. It’s enjoyable being able to help enhance communities.
