Grimmway Farms celebrates its interns

Grimmway Farms marked this year’s National Intern Day by celebrating its talented intern and summer work experience teams.

For decades, Grimmway has offered paid internship programs to qualifying students, along with a unique paid work experience program for children of Grimmway employees who currently attend high school and college.

Throughout 2022, 16 interns have worked alongside Grimmway team members garnering experience in the regulatory compliance, human resources, accounting, food safety, sales, agronomy and production departments. The program is designed to be a competitive, challenging, productive and hands-on experience, which ties students’ current field of study in college to an applicable area of business. Current interns enjoy an active program, including regular networking exercises and a celebratory, lunch-and-learn program with Grimmway CEO Jeff Huckaby.

“For a college student, the internship opportunity is an ideal way to gain insights that connect their field of study to the realities of the work,” said April Morris, Grimmway’s director of employee learning and development. “An immersive experience can open more doors for exploration, help make decisions to navigate a more specific career path and build valuable experience. Undoubtedly, Grimmway also benefits through project and work contributions, diversity of thought and experience, and a pipeline of new talent for future employment.

Grimmway also boasts a unique and robust work experience program, known internally as “Summer Help.” This year’s class has 21 participants, who are gaining valuable work experience in production, maintenance, business analytics, agronomy, transportation and logistics — just to name a few.

Chief People Officer Sara Oliver notes that the intern programs are a “win-win,” for the company and the students: “Development of talent is the most important investment a forward-thinking company can make and exposing students to the breadth of career experiences within the farming sector is exciting and eye-opening for them. As a company, and as Grimmway employees, we are proud to support and engage with these incredible, enthusiastic students, and to have a lot of fun in the process.”
