What did you like best about your internship/co-op? What type of work were you doing?

I loved the experience I got. I was able to use everything I learned in class and apply it to my work. I did a lot of audits relating to health and safety at hydro one. I was a part of the 18001 team and did all the ground work for meetings. I went to site visits and did investigations. Also wrote up some company regulations on stuff like asbestos.

Anytime I needed him I was able to get a quick response back. He was very flexible and let me coordinate meetings with him to talk about future work. always checked up on me to make sure i was okay, Felt like i was really part of the team. I was able to work with a lot of my manager's coworkers so I had people taking me under their wing. Great experience :)

Describe the office environment/culture.

Anytime we had a meeting, I would always get appreciated for the work I contributed. I was welcomed like i was already a part of a team. Super nice coworkers and people who weren't even in my dept were nice to me too! It makes me sad that I have to go soon. I feel like i belong there. There was a co-op committee that was led by co-op students. They created a lot of social events for all of us to get together and mingle. It was fun, made friends with students from other depts!
