Flyer Testimonials

Work, Grow, and Play at Radio Flyer

Work

Upon arrival at Radio Flyer, interns are given meaningful work assignments that have a direct impact on the business. Interns set a personal development goal as well as professional development goals with their managers on their first day. These goals allow interns to drive their own career development and experiences while at Radio Flyer. We give interns the autonomy to create and innovate, and we embrace mistakes as learning opportunities.

Grow

We believe individual growth fuels company growth. Therefore, intern growth is not only encouraged, it is the expectation! We have both formal and informal programs designed to mentor our interns and help them advance their personal and professional journeys from good to GREAT! Our Wagon U Professional Development series is a key part of onboarding for our intern program. These courses connect interns with our brand, provide a deeper understanding of our business, and create an opportunity for interns to ask questions directly to our senior leaders (who serve as the primary Wagon U faculty).

Play

Our FUNomenal™ summer program allows interns to spend time with Flyers and connect on a deeper level. Interns can choose to participate in Committee-led events throughout the summer, such as our annual Wellness Active Challenge and our company-wide social hours. Additionally, interns have multiple networking opportunities with our Senior Leaders at events such as our Intern Welcome Breakfast and Intern Social Hours (often themed!).
