PowerRail Summer Interns "Meet the Management Team"

Duryea, Pennsylvania, July 22, 2021PowerRail’s summer interns recently participated in a “Meet the Management Team” luncheon. The interns enjoyed a roundtable experience with members of the Management Team in which each manager shared some advice that they have found helpful in their own careers. In addition, the interns were given an opportunity to practice their personal introductions and ask questions in an informal, open-discussion format.


Throughout their time at PowerRail, the three interns have been given assignments and projects to help broaden their experience in their field of study, as well as an opportunity to meet and work with a variety of employees at the company’s Corporate Office in Duryea, Pennsylvania.


Deborah Crockett, PowerRail’s Corporate Human Resource Manager, shared, “PowerRail is a great place to complete an internship. We are a big enough company to provide a compelling experience, yet small enough to allow our interns to meet with and learn from some of our top executives.”


Currently completing a summer internship at PowerRail are Oneisha Cabrera, Human Resources Intern, who is entering her senior year as a Business major at Marywood University; Bryanna Gifford, Accounting Intern, who is an Accounting major at Marywood University and scheduled to graduate December 2021; and Marissa Korea, Sales Support Intern, a Business major with a focus on Supply Chain Management at Wilkes University who will graduate December 2022.
