Mechanical Engineering Intern
Evan Finses - Michigan State University

Evan Finses is a Mechanical Engineering Intern at JR’s Quality Drive facility. Having learned about JR through a JR employee and longtime friend, Evan was compelled to check out the internship program, saying “I saw how JR was really pushing the limits within automated manufacturing and was fascinated. It was so different than many companies, and that really caught my attention.” He finds the work he is doing incredibly rewarding, especially seeing the components he designs being built on the shop floor. He says, “I really enjoyed seeing my idea come to life and how it worked with everyone else’s designs.” JR’s culture is also a rewarding part of Evan’s internship. He notes that the people are extremely friendly and the atmosphere is very positive. “Popcorn Friday isn’t too bad either,” he adds. After Evan completes his internship, he’ll return to Michigan State University to continue his Mechanical Engineering degree.

She explains, “I’ve learned a great deal about the industry standards (more than I’ve learned in some of my classes), and that in itself is satisfying.” Mary’s enjoying her summer at JR, adding that the company culture is her favorite part, “The people are friendly and inviting.

Matt Williams - Grand Valley State University

Matt Williams a Controls Engineering Intern at JR’s Tyler Street facility. Having been assigned to learn about JR through a Grand Valley State University internship prep course, Matt researched the type of projects made at JR and met with the recruiting team to discuss the opportunities that JR offers. This interaction compelled Matt to join the JR team, saying, “I saw a great opportunity here at JR to be able to get first-hand industry experience while still having the ability to grow both professionally and technically. Also, I learned that JR had a really good culture.” Since starting, Matt has been working on the controls for a complex, large-system machine. He’s found it most rewarding to see the machine being built and knowing that “nearly two months of design work is manifesting into something tangible. It gives me a great sense of accomplishment.” He adds, “I’ve never once felt ‘held back’ in any way. If anything, it’s the exact opposite; I spend a lot of my time outside of my comfort zone. This is a good thing because that’s where growth occurs.” Matt plans to complete his internship rounds at JR while he finishes his last two years of school.

Why West Michigan?

Why West Michigan?

West Michigan may just be the US's best kept secret. Affordable living, a thriving social scene, outdoor adventures, and much more, West Michigan really has it all.
