Corporate Internship Program

Corporate Internship Program

McCarthy Tire Service’s internship program offers high-caliber high school and college students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in a fast-paced business environment. They develop tangible professional skills that make them competitive in the marketplace. They also learn what it takes to be successful in a multi-million-dollar corporation. Every intern is assigned a manager/mentor who holds regular one-on-one meetings with the student to discuss projects, to monitor progress, and to provide feedback and encouragement.

High School Students

High school juniors and seniors participate in traditional summer internships that support the fiscal department’s daily operations. They learn general administrative and business skills, and they receive encouragement and professional advice as they plan for their higher education. High-performing interns have the option of returning during college breaks.

Undergraduates are eligible for more extensive internship placements. Students who demonstrate initiative, leadership potential, and a strong work ethic are placed in the corporate department that aligns with their course of study and career goals. Over the last two years, McCarthy Tire has expanded its internship program by placing undergraduates in the finance, human resources, legal, marketing, and purchasing departments. The positions are structured as:

  • A short-term assignment centered around a specific project.
  • A placement that extends for a semester and fulfills university requirements for credit.
  • A long-term assignment structured as a part-time job, but with flexible scheduling for college coursework.

Recent interns have included:

  • Conor Durkin (shown center) from Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, joined the marketing department early in 2018 on a long-term assignment that included a semester internship for college credit. He will continue his placement through the upcoming summer and his senior year.
  • Thea Seasock (shown right) a senior from nearby King’s College, joined the human resources department in fall 2018. She is set to graduate this May with a bachelor of arts degree in human resources, and she is continuing her internship as she searches for a permanent position.
  • Krista Vogue (shown left) is a junior from King’s College. She also took a placement with the human resources department in fall 2018. She will remain with the department through the summer and her senior year.
  • Keighlyn Oliver interned consecutively with the marketing, legal, and finance departments during her senior year at Wilkes University. Now in law school at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, she will return for an internship with the legal department during summer 2019.
  • Marley Mullery from Catholic University in Washington, DC, served as an intern with the legal department during summer 2018 prior to starting her senior year. She plans to attend Notre Dame Law School in fall 2019.
  • As McCarthy Tire continues to grow, selected interns are invited to join the company as full-time associates:

    • Andrey Boris interned in the marketing department for 18 months prior to his graduation from Wilkes University in 2017. He was accepted into McCarthy Tire’s rigorous management trainee program, and he now holds a full-time position as a special account manager.
    • Ryan Javick interned in the purchasing department while he was a senior from King's College in Wilkes-Barre. After graduation, he was offered a permanent position as a purchasing assistant. He has subsequently taken an assignment as a regional billing analyst.
