Internships & Co-ops

You think about the future a lot. You know you need to apply what you've learned in the classroom to the real world. But aren't sure exactly where to start. What you do in your college years sets the stage for your entire career. Make it count.

Internships provide real world job experience between academic sessions. C&S offers Summer internships, which typically run from May-August each summer.

Co-op employees are enrolled in a cooperative education program at an accredited four- or five-year college or university, pursuing a bachelor's or advanced degree. You can work any time of the year, including part-time, and can be enrolled in either a technical or non-technical discipline. Most managers prefer co-ops to work a six to seven month period, although there is flexibility within this requirement.

Intern and Co-op Benefits
  • Challenging and stimulating work assignments
  • Free fully furnished housing for eligible students
  • Professional development and networking programs
  • Competitive salaries
  • Overtime pay at time-and-a-half for hours worked beyond the normal 40-hour week
  • Job-related travel expense reimbursement

As part of the C&S Internship Program, you will gain real world experience through interesting, challenging and meaningful work while contributing to the bottom line. As a $25 billion company and ranked as one of the ten largest privately held companies in the U.S. by Forbes, C&S is the ideal place for you to make professional connections, get hands on skills and see the latest technological tools in action. But it's not all about work, our internships include time for networking with other interns and C&S employees, training geared towards college students on topics such as business etiquette and learning about the different business areas.

During a C&S internship, you will work on challenging tasks that directly impact the bottom line. Network with C&S leadership and other young professionals, and create an opportunity for full-time employment at C&S after graduation. You'll learn about C&S through warehouse tours, department spotlights and collegiate lunch & learns. Make a difference in the community through C&S service projects, and live in free furnished housing (for eligible students).

From our Interns

This has been my first summer at C&S and it has truly been a wonderful experience! When I was offered the Corporate Tax intern position, I was so nervous because I had no prior experience with taxes, but everyone in the department was so welcoming and understanding! The team included me in important company projects, and I was responsible for parts of the projects. It felt good knowing that what I was doing had a positive impact on the company! Not only has my internship taught me about taxes, but it's given me a taste of the "real-work" environment. I've learned so much about the company and am very grateful that I was given this opportunity!

The dedication C&S has to developing interns and recent graduates lets me know that I have a lot to contribute and that I can really make a difference in the company. The management I have worked with has been helpful and eager to welcome me into the business. There's no 'coffee gophering' here-between daily tasks, meetings and long-term projects, C&S has developed my understanding of many aspects of the business and has given me the tools to succeed as I continue my career!
