The GTG team advances our technological capabilities in direct support of our business goals. Interns work alongside team members in our downtown Chicago office at The Mart on new and innovative functionalities that have a direct impact to the business.

Each intern contributes their skills to a specific team while also working collaboratively across the intern class to build a solution for a business problem. Along the way, we prioritize time for networking, professional development, and social events. At the end of the internship, GTG interns have the opportunity to present their work to team members and senior leadership.

Throughout their internship, GSC and MSM interns partner with a core support group of full-time employees on a single project addressing a business challenge. Projects range from inventory and flow coordination within our distribution centers, optimizing supplier performance, and even introducing new items to our product assortment.

In addition to project work, interns have opportunities to network with corporate leaders, including our CEO, and get to know each other through fun activities such as social happy hours and networking mixers. At the end of the program, interns present their analysis and recommendations to key stakeholders and leaders who consider implementation of the proposed solutions. Many interns have the opportunity to see their work result in increased business performance.

Finance interns work alongside professionals aligned to various areas of the business, providing deep exposure into a specific department or project. Interns are supported by partners at levels of the organization from their rotation program "buddy" to their senior-level mentor. In addition to day-to-day work, interns have the unique opportunity to meet the Finance Leadership Team and interact with other senior professionals.

"What stood out about Grainger when deciding between opportunities was their culture's genuine kindness. This held true throughout my summer internship which was the 2nd best summer of my life (only behind the summer I joined the Engineering Development Program).

Everyone was very approachable, even if they were not on my team – I felt like, and knew, that everyone was looking out for me. The internship prepared me incredibly well to transition into the Engineering Development Program. There is a lot of exciting technology work happening at Grainger – and I hope to see you join us as we keep the world working!"

“To this day, I am extremely grateful for the impact my internship has had on my experience at Grainger. I learned about Grainger’s culture and values which allowed me to dive seamlessly into work when I joined full-time and be myself.

Skills and tools are transferable or can be learned on the job, but learning about the people and company established a sense of purpose and community. I had a network that supported me, a network to start thinking about where I wanted to move next, and friends who knew me on the very first day of my career.”
