Success Stories

  • Lexy Koehn, QA Intern

    American Foods Group is a company that is family focused and strives to produce safe, high-quality beef. They are staffed with amazing people who will encourage you and do everything in their power to see you succeed. I worked at the East River Plant in Green Bay, WI as their QA intern, and let me tell you it was one of the best summers I have ever had. I learned so much about production and was able to conduct projects throughout the summer. This experience was educational and overseeded any expectations I had. My favorite thing about this company is the people they employee. I established friendships with production workers on every line, those who were in the offices, and with the other interns. Being far from home for three months was a challenge, but this company immediately made me feel welcomed and made me a part of their family. AFG also presented me with opportunities to grow and explorer the company outside of the QA department. If you have any interest in the meat industry I would highly recommend applying for an internship!

  • Ryan Pawlowski - Operations Intern

    The AFG Internship Program was a great experience, and I learned a lot of valuable skills. As an Operations Intern, I had the opportunity for hands-on learning to really see how the plant runs on a day-to-day basis. The culture at AFG was something that stood out to me the most. It is a very easy environment to learn in, when everybody wants to share their knowledge and experiences to help you succeed. This helped me grow and get the most out of my time here at AFG.
