Materials Management Internships - Summer 2022
Steelcase was founded as an office furniture maker, and we've evolved into the global leader in workplace solutions. We apply our insights to the intersection of space, technology, and furniture, helping individuals and teams in leading companies around the world to have a better day at work.
We pursue innovation, strive for sustainability, and develop insights in every part of our business.
Why Materials Management?:
We believe you will love feeling like a valued colleague (not an intern). We are dedicated to building a developmental learning environment. You will have free reign of knowledge and leaders who are passionate coaches.
We strive for you to learn, so we will not give you the answers or tell you exactly what to do. This may be challenging, but we empower you to make decisions and implement your analytical skill. You'll appreciate the creative freedom to manage projects without the fear of failure. We’ll build your confidence and hone your presentation skills by asking you to present in front of a variety of management and executive leadership at multiple check points throughout the summer.
What you will be doing:
During the year we are building a repository of important projects for you to tackle. You will own 2 or 3 projects at the same time and work in multiple locations – plant floors, plant offices, our global business center (headquarters). You will work both individually and in teams.
These cross-functional projects will be dedicated to the following and will make valuable contributions to the organization by:
- Saving time
- Improving Lean processes
- Cost savings
- Inventory accuracy to improve quality
- Data analysis
What You Bring:
- Are you a puzzle master or someone who is an analytical problem solver?

- Are you okay with ambiguity and capable of making a tough decision?
- Are you often described as tenacious?
- Are you confident to share your point of view and speak with employees from all levels?

- SAP background preferred, but not required
- We prefer Sophomores or Junior
Your Future Team:
We invite you to join this fast-pace team of about 60 employees with a daily morning stand up meeting. A good portion of the internship is spent on the floor of the plant. We hope you’re early rise as our shift is from 7:30-3:30pm.
