Job Description

 The Company

Heico has a history of success. Since its founding over 40 years ago The Heico Companies has grown from a single business to over 70 separate companies through a strategic acquisition policy, and by reinvesting its earnings into internal growth and new prospects. Historically talented at restoring distressed companies, Heico strategically targets acquisitions that will complement its ever-growing portfolio of companies in manufacturing, construction, and industrial services.

These four core operations are organized into platforms: Metal Processing Group, Construction Services Group, Applied Solutions Group, and Industrial Technologies Group. Once acquired, new Heico companies are assigned to a platform and run on a stand-alone basis, allowing for great independence as well as the opportunity to share knowledge about markets, production processes, and management practices across other Heico platforms and companies.

Heico continues to seek out new opportunities and maintain its standard of success. The Heico Companies L.L.C has remained a privately held company since its creation and maintains a majority ownership in each of its operations, which generate more than two and a half billion dollars in revenues. Many of our businesses are certified Woman-owned Business Enterprises (WBE). More information about the overall organization can be found at www.heicocompanies.com.

The Position

Our Internship Program not only provides real-world expertise but also career development courses where you will learn the art of business, receive feedback on your resume, practice power lunch skills and meet weekly with different functional leaders. Interns will also participate in Heico’s annual Charity Day, a chance to volunteer with your fellow teammates. In July, take a trip to tour a few companies to learn about our industries and work cultures. Then, at the end of the summer, take what you have learned and apply it to your end of summer presentation to the management team.

This is a full-time, paid summer internship, typically ranging from 10-12 weeks. Throughout the internship, we provide continuous training and performance feedback to ensure you build the necessary skills to succeed.  Additional career opportunities may be available upon conclusion of a successful internship.
