At Lindt USA, we created a unique and inclusive Lindternship program that provides competitive hourly compensation, paid holidays, fun group activities outside of the office, and meaningful, hands-on work for our student Lindterns. For more than 10 years, our undergraduate and graduate participants have completed their 3 month or 6 month Lindternships in departments such as Engineering, Marketing, Production and Demand Planning, Quality Assurance, Research & Development, Sales, Logistics, and others. As part of their program, they engage with other student Lindterns on campus, participate in luncheons with the executive leadership team and present on their projects and accomplishments.
