Meet Our Past Interns

We strive to make the best windows and doors in America. If a company wants that kind of success in today’s business world, it needs a fresh set of eyes every now and then. That’s what we strive for with our internship program at MI Windows and Doors: We want talented, motivated young people to shake the shackles of academia off for a brief time, roll their sleeves up, and get to work bringing fresh energy to our company.

We want to make sure that our internship program is mutually beneficial, which is why we ask experienced supervisors to oversee our interns and help guide them throughout their experience. Since beginning the intern program in 2016, we’ve been helped immensely by the input of these bright young minds.

Read on to hear the stories of how our interns help MI Windows and Doors create the finest windows, doors, and experiences every day, everywhere.
