“When I started at Jarrett, I was a sophomore in college with a very general idea of what I wanted to do and who I wanted to be. What I didn’t know at the time was that my summer internship would turn into a career that I am extremely passionate about. At Jarrett, I’ve found a career, a passion, and a work family. My internship opened my eyes to what “work” could look like and what it means to work with passionate people. I was given the opportunity to grow and develop in a real-world environment. After five years, I can’t imagine being anywhere else.”
GROW with Jarrett
Our interns fulfill the daily responsibilities of our full-time staff no matter the department they are in. Our large intern class arrives each summer, however there is no shortage of opportunities during the spring and fall semesters. We look for interns that are looking to gain great business experience and career development. At Jarrett, we offer internships in various departments including Operations, Logistics, Marketing, Sales, HR, IT, Analysis, Auditing, and more.
True to our core value, Civic Responsibility, we are partnered with many local community organizations and take every chance to give back. We offer many opportunities for employees to get involved, including packing meals for underprivileged students, collecting cans for Thanksgiving, and purchasing Christmas presents for children in the community. During the summer, we provide a special emphasis on giving back with our interns and dedicate a day to volunteer at the Salvation Army.
REAL WORLD EXPERIENCE
Jarrett is not a place where interns will fetch coffee and make copies. Our interns work alongside our full-time employees and contribute real results to real customers each day. Interns will come away with real world experience working for a growth-minded company.
OPPORTUNITIES FOR GROWTH
Our GROW internship kickstarts a career at Jarrett. Just like we promote from within, we hire our interns on full-time upon graduation whenever possible. Interns who prove themselves in their intern roles have the opportunity to grow within their existing department as well as transitioning to other departments of interest.
Interns receive the 50% discount at Jarrett Fitness Facilities, Zephyrs Fitness and CrossFit Orrville. Each summer, we also host an intern-only CrossFit workout! In addition, interns can work out on their lunch breaks along with our full-time employees and enjoy standing desks to remain fit while at their desks. We also offer wellness seminars throughout the year to provide wellness education.
Our GROW Internship Program has hosted students from many different universities in Northeast Ohio throughout the years. We’re excited to continue to grow our reach!

How are interns able to give back?

Is this a paid internship?
Yes! Our interns are paid for their work each summer. New interns joining the company are paid $12.00 per hour.
What can I do to stand out?
During the interview, come prepared with good questions. A good question that makes the Recruiter think will be memorable. As an intern, a strong work ethic and desire to improve processes always stands out. Most of all, be yourself!
Will Jarrett come to my school?
Maybe! We encourage you to check out our upcoming career fair schedule. If you ever have questions or would like to help set up a partnership with your school, please send us an email by filling out a form on the website.
How many hours per week would an intern work?
Our summer interns work 40 hours per week. Throughout the year, our semester interns work a range of 15 – 40 hours per week, depending on their availability.
Do interns get the opportunity to see other departments?
Absolutely. Any employees and/or interns can job shadow in any department. All they need to do is fill out a job shadow application.
Do interns receive any benefits?
Interns do receive discounts at Zephyrs Fitness and CrossFit Orrville, which many do use.
Do you hire interns as employees once they graduate?
That’s our intention! Our retention rate for hiring interns as full-time employees is high and we do that whenever possible.
What types of responsibilities do interns have?
Our interns work alongside our full-time employees and truly get a real-world work experience. Our interns have a direct impact on the bottom line of the company.
What is the culture like?
Jarrett is a close-knit, family-oriented culture. Our hiring strategy is intently focused on our core values and hiring through the lens of our culture. When you join Jarrett, you become part of the Jarrett family.
Do I have to have a certain major to be considered for an internship?
Nope! We consider any majors for our internships. While our preference is to have interns with majors relevant to the work they’re doing, it is not a requirement. At the end of the day, we want to make sure that our interns are getting the experience that is relevant to their career goals.
What are the start and end dates of internships?
We consider each of the schools we have representation from and base our start and end dates around that. We typically begin our summer internship programs mid-May and end them mid-August.
