Internship / Full-Time Management Trainee
With over 43,000 employees, Bridgestone Americas, Inc., eclipses its nearest competitor in the industry. And this means BIG opportunities for people who want to develop their career at the world’s largest tire and rubber organization.
Just how big are the opportunities available?
It's up to you. Most of our senior teammates have grown their careers through internal promotional opportunities as our focus is on developing strong talent to create future leaders. We have one of the highest retention rates of any retailer in any industry and Bridgestone Americas is committed to providing you the resources and infrastructure needed to be your best.
The Bridgestone Leadership Development Internship Program allows you exposure to our core business unit, Retail Operations. Through the ten week program you will have the opportunity to learn operations management, marketing, financial analysis, product knowledge, leadership development and our overall business strategy.
The internship program will be a combination of group training and individual development. You will spend orientation with the entire internship class to allow collaboration and teambuilding while learning the foundation of our business. During your experience at one of our 2,200 locations across the United States, you will be given an internship project allowing you to lead one of the most important days of our summer program, the Grass Roots Sales Event. The store experience will be a mixture of hands on training, leadership exposure, and customer analytics, to thoroughly prepare you for your final project.
Upon completion of the internship, top participants will be presented offers for the Bridgestone Leadership Development Program and will be invited to our corporate office in Nashville, Tennessee, to meet our executive team and learn more about our innovative and dynamic culture. The BLDP will begin in June of 2015, and all participants must complete their degree and be available to begin employment at this time.
Since our stores are open evenings and weekends, your daily schedule may vary but any given week you will work no more than a total of 40 hours.
