TMH Summer Interns Help People Carry the Load

The whirlwind that is summer internship season has come and gone, much quicker than it has in the past. Toyota Material Handling hosted 18 interns from 8 different universities for a short, but productive 6 weeks. 2020 marked the fifth year of holding our summer internship program. It was also the very first year of hosting the interns remotely during what is an ever changing and involving work climate. We know how important our internship program is for the growth and development of not only the next generation of material handling industry associates but also for our company as a whole. Each summer, our interns provide our departments an opportunity to accomplish meaningful and challenging projects.


Each intern was able to complete at least two to five real world projects. Some of these projects included robotics development, enterprise IT support, and product planning. The projects assigned are meaningful for our company in many ways including cost reduction activity and process improvements while our Associates and leaders gain much needed insight into the next generation’s skills and work styles.

Ratna Mandava, our TMHNA IT intern said “I have experienced how Enterprise level IT decisions are made and understood how much effort is put into collaborating on every move.” Trinite Klamadji, our information technology intern, wanted other potential interns to know that: “My biggest takeaways will be to remain humble and professional at all times and give back by helping people around me.”


We know that our core values lead each of our Associates in their daily work, and we were thankful to see those values were able to transfer to our interns even though they were all miles apart. We were very glad to be able to continue our internship program for the summer of 2020 and wish each of our interns best of luck as they start their next year of school. We are already looking forward to summer 2021 and internship program at Toyota Material Handling and are excited to see students at the upcoming career fairs. Tasha Goodlow, a Talent Acquisition Partner, said, “As we begin this year’s search for our next interns, we hope that each candidate searches for a company that matches their own core values and that find that Toyota could be the perfect fit for them.”


Toyota Material Handling will be at several surrounding university career fairs this fall, either in person or virtually. Make sure to “stop by” and speak to our Associates to learn if Toyota can be the right fit for your career aspirations.
