Welcome Back to School, CISD!

Welcome Back to School, CISD!

Powerhouse is sharing Crowley’s excitement for CISD’s 2019-2020 school year!

So excited, some of our HR and Finance team members went to BRJ’s campus to welcome the high schoolers to their first day! This school district of two high school campuses and one CTE Center is the source of Powerhouse’s interns for the Fall and Spring semesters. We can’t wait to meet the young adults that get to come to our office this semester.

Thank you HR and Finance for being a part of this red carpet welcome at the CTE Center early this morning! Your energy and encouragement is sure to make a positive and lasting impact on their day and hopefully their year.

Thank You 2019 Summer Interns

Thank You 2019 Summer Interns

The work ethic of our interns this year was incredible! Thank you all for stepping out of your comfort zones to learn new skills and for supporting our largest teams this summer. Come back next year!

A big shout out to Powerhouse’s Senior Training and Development Manager – Brittney Hale. She led the 2019 Summer group of 24 interns on a journey of learning new skills at our Crowley Headquarters. While they each set out on their own tasks in one of Powerhouse’s departments, they also got together every Wednesday to volunteer at the local Center for ASD. Each Wednesday, at Crowley’s Center for ASD they crafted with the kids in summer camp and supported the CASD staff by helping carry out the daily activities.

Hear from and about our 2019 interns:

Working at Powerhouse has been an amazing experience. I have gained so much more out of this opportunity than I ever thought possible with an internship. Powerhouse is home to some of the most amazing people I have ever worked with and want to thank everyone who has had any impact on me during my short time here.

-Zach Mendias, Intern, Permitting

I really enjoyed working with my team and gained useful insight of the business. I  also gained a lot of experience using Excel, which was one of my goals for the internship. In summary, it was an incredible experience.

-Oscar Mhiko, Intern, Special Projects

I definitely have learned a lot this summer and had a great time working here. Thank you for doing so much to support all of the interns so that we can get the most out of our time at Powerhouse.

-Ross Huck, Intern, Special Projects

This summer at Powerhouse has been a phenomenal experience. The people I’ve worked with truly made me feel like a member of their team. I’m so grateful for the opportunity Powerhouse has given me and can’t wait to work with them again in the future.

-Josh Stafford, Intern, Project Coordinator

Brittney organized and managed a successful Intern Program this summer with over 20 interns supporting various departments throughout the organization. She helped them develop powerful job skills including problem solving, strategic thinking, organizational skills and other valuable tools that will benefit them in their future careers.  Great job Brittney

-Ronni Goble, Senior Recruiter

Matthew sat near my team this summer and we’ve overheard many of his phone conversations. I just wanted to take a minute to let you know that my team has taken notice of his awesome communication skills, and has provided the feedback to me that he sounds like a PH veteran and that his phone skills are more professional than some one would expect for a first year intern.
