Our intern program is an incredible opportunity for college students to expand their knowledge and gain real world experience. We give our interns all the tools and training needed to be successful. Our internships aren’t just scanning documents and getting coffee, our interns do real work that is vital to the success of our company. Day one, we make our interns a part of the Melton family and nearly all our interns have been hired on in a full-time capacity after graduation. If you are an energetic college student who wants a great opportunity, consider Melton Truck Lines internship program.
"I heard about Melton from the enthusiastic references to the company made by my Human Resources professor at my alma mater. He taught several other employees here at Melton who have been very successful and held long careers with the company. My old professor uses Melton as an example of how companies make appropriate choices for their employees, and he recommended I look into interning here.
I learned an incredible amount during my internship—more than any other job. To name a few, I learned how to honestly promote a company in a manner that targets those who are interested, how to support others in my team and anticipate needs of my coworkers and managers, how to navigate through a large company to get a variety of issues attended to quickly, and how to brainstorm both as an individual and in a group to capture innovative ideas and processes. I also learned that no position is insignificant no matter how large the company, and the importance of recognizing achievement on all levels. My internship experience benefitted me immensely by diversifying my knowledge base and skill set through intense application of both, far beyond that of a college degree.
The energetic and encouraging culture as well as the vibrant and industrious team of employees quickly convinced me I wanted to move into a full-time position with this company. In my first week as an intern, I sat with top employees holding different positions in several departments. In that week and the weeks to come, I knew that I would be with Melton long term."

"I was pursuing my degree in Environmental Health and Safety Management from Northeastern State University when I heard about Melton. I reached out to a friend of a friend at Melton and was given the opportunity to visit the campus and meet some of the employees. From that first interview and interaction with Melton employees, I knew this would be a great company for me to start my career, and potentially retire from.
I’ve learned so much about transportation, safety, and business in general. Melton has given me experiences I will be able to carry with me throughout my career. From day one, I was given meaningful work and I have been trusted with serious projects.
Throughout school I always hoped to find a job that I enjoyed, and I have certainly found that with Melton. I couldn’t ask for a better company to work for or better people to work with."

"I learned about internship opportunities with Melton at the Oklahoma State career fair. I knew an internship would be a good experience for me, but I never imagined it would be as incredible and enriching as my internship with Melton has been. Since I didn’t have any real business experience, I was a little nervous at first, but through my internship at Melton, I have been able to learn so many new skills at a comfortable pace. I learned about every department and how my role truly makes a difference in the company.
This is the only job I have had where I felt genuinely appreciated and challenged to become more successful every day. It was an easy decision to pursue a career here because Melton has become my second family."

"I heard about Melton through the HireOSUgrads website. After doing some research on the company, I knew I needed to stop by their booth at the career fair. When I met the Melton recruiter, Shayla, I instantly felt Melton was an awesome company to work for.
I was hired as the Marketing and HR intern. This was a great opportunity for me, as I was pursuing a marketing and human resources degree and I wasn’t sure which path I wanted to take. As an intern, I was not just given “intern” tasks like get coffee or make copies. Instead, everyone treated me as any other employee whom they depended on to get the job done.
I’ve learned it is really important to have good management/leadership in order for you to grow in your career. My managers at Melton really cared about my success and made sure that I had the tools and opportunities to get me where I wanted to go. I gained real HR and marketing experience and have met some great people along the way. I definitely benefited from my internship. Especially because I was given so many options to decide where I want my career to go here at Melton.
I think what really drove me to want to stay here at Melton was the people. Everyone included me and welcomed me to the team. Melton is like a family and you can truly feel it when you work here."
