H-E-B offers a wealth of career opportunities to our 100,000+ Partners (employees), competitive compensation and benefits program and comprehensive training that lead to successful careers.
The H-E-B Graduate Internship program is designed to give high talent individuals exposure to various experiences at H-E-B. It is an ideal program for a self-motivated individual who has an interest in retail. The program is a 10-week summer internship that offers MBA Students the opportunity to combine work experience with professional development. Interns will work approximately 40 hours a week in a business unit located at the H-E-B Corporate Headquarters, Store Operations or the Manufacturing, Warehousing and Transportation facilities in San Antonio, Texas. In years past we have had Graduate Interns in many areas of the business including Procurement, Supply Chain and Logistics, eCommerce, Store Operations, etc. This program offers you an opportunity to work in an environment where you can continue enterprise learning while being exposed to the dynamics of an integrated retailer.
Throughout the summer, Interns are frequently exposed to our Senior Leadership Team at networking events, spend some time in our Store Operations division, tour many of our Manufacturing, Warehousing and Transportation (MWT) facilities, leadership development training, and attend many special events. Some of the special events in the past have included; going to a new store opening, flying to the Fancy Food Show in New York, learning more about our Mexico operations in Mexico, and traveling with the Real Estate team scouting potential properties to build a new H-E-B store.
Each intern will receive a final evaluation to assess their performance, review goals, and discuss developmental needs. In addition to practical on-the-job training, interns will be challenged with a project relevant to your business unit that is business driven and will have an impact on H-E-B. Interns will present their final presentation to the Business Leaders at the conclusion of your internship.
An ideal candidate for the Graduate Internship Program must possess . . .
· A strong drive for results coupled with a highly strategic focus.
· A passion for developing people and have a listening, hands on, approachable leadership style.

Many of our Graduate Interns have enjoyed their experience so much that they have accepted full time leadership positions after graduation. You too could have the opportunity to change the way the world works by leading and executing on the massive shift that grocery retail is going through! More importantly, work with a company that genuinely makes the world a better place by offering people high quality food at a price they can afford.
