Zach Martens – Technical Engineer Trainee Program Graduate
"The rotational program has provided me a well-rounded view of the diverse industrial automation market that SICK plays in. By the end of the program, I had a unique and valuable perspective of the business that few get. Having an opportunity to learn and grow in several roles early on in my career has been immensely helpful in answering "what do I want to be when I grow up". I would recommend the program to anyone wanting to challenge themselves and jump into their career with both feet. "Katie Larson – Technical Engineer Trainee Program Graduate
"The SICK SensorING Rotational Program has been an excellent experience for me. As I concluded my college career, I was specifically looking for a rotational program and SICK provided exactly what I had in mind. The six month stints are a significant length in order to get exposure to what is incorporated within the position, establish working relationships and have an impact within the company. As the months have passed, I continue to meet more coworkers and have grabbed dinner after work with many of them! Having built these bonds has enabled me to work on projects more efficiently, since I know who to contact to get tasks done. Also, making these connections has made moving to a new state with no family or friends here more manageable. Having done manufacturing and engineering internships in the past, the roles in this rotation have been different from those experiences, but that has led me to grow into a more well-rounded employee!"Jacob Thalhuber – Technical Engineer Trainee Program Graduate
"I'm thankful to work for a company that is willing to invest so much in my professional development. The rotations provide different perspectives of the organization and a better understanding of the SICK business. I'm most thankful for the great relationships that were built along the way. This program lays the foundation for a great career at SICK. The SensorING Rotational Program is a true embodiment of SICK Way."Brett Olson – Technical Engineer Trainee Program Graduate
"I had a fantastic experience with SICK throughout my time in the rotational program! I was paired with very competent managers and mentors that helped me learn more about SICK and improve my own personal skills. While learning about the organization, I was able to get experience in multiple industries and learn from different roles to gain a full understanding of the different opportunities that I have at SICK."
