Quality Engineer Intern
in Plymouth, MN

"Quality engineer intern position helped me learn the importance of proper documentation and how millions of lives and money depend on the finesse with which documentation is maintained. Also the cross functionality of the quality team was a big plus in learning how the rest of the organizational parts, such as R&D, manufacturing, marketing and process development work collaboratively."

Quality Engineer Intern
in Plymouth, MN

"I worked for SJM over the summer of 2013 as a Quality Engineer Intern. The best part about working in (another) medical device company was the opportunities to grow and learn from a pool of professionals whose backgrounds ranged from all over the place - military, aerospace, geology, to even arts and finance. This was an amazing opportunity and I would recommend SJM to be a part of any job seekers top list!"
