  • Overview

    Walsh is currently seeking an Equipment Intern for our Irondale Facility in Chicago, IL.

    Are you someone who thrives on managing your school work and solving problems? Are you excited about working for a family company where, when you push yourself, you will be recognized? For Walsh Interns, a good day is getting everything done on their to-do lists or helping to solve a pesky problem. A great day, is when they get to do both.

    Walsh Interns are easy to follow because they speak with precision, order and efficiency. They get things done because they plan their work and then work their plan. Are you a student that puts the same amount of care into managing relationships as you do into managing your course load?  If so, we might have something for you.

    As a fourth generation family owned business, Walsh recruits students that will take ownership for ensuring things are handled right. Are you someone who likes to say “yes” to taking on more? Are you someone who gets things started without being asked?

    If this sounds like you, then we want to hear from you. If you have what it takes, welcome to the family.
