Techtronic Industries, NA (TTI)

Finance and Accounting Intern

June - July 2021 • Fort Lauderdale, FL

What I liked

The internal audit and the business planning &analysis teams were very welcoming and helpful. They taught us a lot through presentations and giving the interns tasks to assist on projects.

What I wish was different

Although most of the internship was in-person, I wish the entire internship was in person because meeting professionals and making connections is very valuable.

Advice

It’s important to try learning excel prior to the start because it will make the intensas audit team tasks that are assigned easier to complete without needing as much guidance.

Field sales and Marketing Intern

June - August 2021 • Las Vegas, NV

What I liked

That I learned how to use power tools! Great mentor. Competitive pay.

What I wish was different

Wish I interacted with the other interns more. During the interview process, when asking what the job is like, they beat around the bush and were very dull in their answer. Be careful if you are a woman you will be harrassed day in and out.

Advice

If they reach out to you, do not answer!

Sales Representative Intern

June - July 2020 • Tustin, CA

What I liked

I liked getting to learn more about sales and how very structured organizations work and promote.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had had more desk-time projects rather than just doing in-aisle selling. I did not like the in-aisle selling very much and really enjoyed the more analytic and thought-provoking projects they provided me.

Advice

Sales experience is great and really important for a lot of jobs, but I would recommend being a sales rep for a product you are really passionate about!

Industrial Design Intern

September - December 2020 • Anderson, SC

What I liked

I had the opportunity to work on real projects with extremely talented coworkers. The team is so large and diverse that you can almost always find an expert to help you with any skill you would like to learn. Their internship program stands head and shoulders above others because the staff will often go out of their way to help you succeed.

What I wish was different

I wish i had a bit more variety between concept and production work. Since the internship is only 4 months long, I was largely put on conceptual projects that I could not carry to market.

Advice

Ask as many questions as possible to learn more about the industry/improve your design skills.

Field sales and marketing intern

June - August 2020 • Raleigh, NC

What I liked

TTI has a great leadership development program, and assist everyone by providing all the necessary resources to be successful in the professional field.

What I wish was different

Everything about the program was hands-on and educational, however, due to the pandemic, a lot of the usual events that are put on during the internship were canceled. I wish we had been able to participate in more events involving customers, which includes a demo event where we focus on the point of sale and marketing.

Advice

I would encourage everyone to go into every day with a positive can-do attitude. Some days are a little slower than others and require intrinsic motivation in order to keep pushing through which is what the full-time job would also require.

Sales & Marketing Intern

June - August 2019 • Claymont, DE

What I liked

I liked how it allowed me to become comfortable approaching customers and how I was able to also stay competitive trying to sell against other competitors. I learned a lot about how to properly approach customers and match them to what fits their needs best.

What I wish was different

Sometimes in the store it could get empty and there was not much to do at times to stay busy as an Intern.

Advice

Product knowledge is the biggest key to being successful especially in the sales and marketing field. The more work you put in to fully learn and grasp what you are trying to sell the more successful you will be in the long run.

May - August 2019 • Lindon, UT

What I liked

I thought it was a great opportunity to see how people react to changes in a product. I was able to put things I was learning in class into practice.

Field Sales and Marketing Intern

June - August 2019 • Seattle, WA

What I liked

The freedom and responsibility of being a sales rep with a mentor present; upper management was not as present as common organizations and there was a lot of trust involved.

What I wish was different

I would have liked to get more business to business experience.

Advice

Go into a new job with a positive outlook and try to learn as much as possible.

Sales/Marketing Intern

May - August 2018 • Louisville, KY

What I liked

TTI has an absolutely phenomenal intern program. Not only do you learn about business process, but you have the opportunity to learn from corporate mentors. There is a culture of excitement and excellence within this organization and it is evident when working with team members. It is also a global company. This company is growing quickly and they have opportunities for work all over the world. TTI likes to hire young, and they like to hire within.

What I wish was different

I interned with this company two years, 2017 and 2018. While there was a little bit of change in the program my second year, I wish there had been a little bit more focus on application of what I had learned the previous year. Thankfully, the Sales Rep I interned with really helped me apply the skills I learned the previous year.

Advice

Come ready to learn. If you haven't been in a sales role before, it will be a very eye opening experience. Also, be willing to get out of your comfort zone and have a good work ethic. This is a company who values hard work and thinking outside of the box. I highly recommend!

Field Sales and Marketing Intern

May - August 2017 • Orlando, FL

What I liked

It was very interactive and everyone on the team was willing to help me learn the industry and succeed. I was given a lot of freedom to see if I could implement what I learned from class into the real world and always received constructive feedback. My manager was very active in my internship and helped me to grow professionally tremendously and never scrutinized me for not knowing something. My mentor helped me gain confidence in myself as a salesperson and always had my best interest at heart. In just 10-12 weeks I learned so much about the company and it was a great experience.

What I wish was different

I wish I could've interacted with other interns a little more

Advice

Really immerse yourself into the internship and watch the training videos and product knowledge ones because it will get you excited to sell.

Field Sales and Marketing Rep

May - August 2017 • Atlanta, GA

What I liked

On-hands learning experience, laid-out plan of what to expect during the internship, great management team

What I wish was different

Even though this is considered a marketing internship, this is a SALES oriented internship, very little marketing at all

Advice

If you can choose your stores/location, pick to work in a single store because you get to know your coworkers better and there is a LOT less travel time
