We want to hear your story! Our recruiting teams attend college fairs on more than 25 campuses during the recruiting season. We also want to tell you a little about our story, our company culture and the types of work assignments available for co-ops and interns like you. Often, we’ll schedule on-campus interviews based on learning about your interests and goals at the career fair.
Below are several questions we receive from Student Hires considering co-op & internship opportunities with GE Appliances.
Co-ops (short for Cooperative Education) typically involve multiple semesters and rotations, alternating between full-time work and full-time school. The typical co-op will complete two to five rotations, gaining a year or more of career-related work experience before graduation. Most university sponsored co-op programs also offer academic credit. Internships are typically one semester and generally do not earn academic credit. We encourage you to review our Student Opportunities job board and learn more about our work assignments.
All our co-op and intern opportunities are paid. We provide housing and relocation assistance to students who are eligible.
At GE Appliances, we tend to use the terms “co-op” and “intern” interchangeably. Our Engineering, Supply Chain and Information Technology teams encourage work assignments spanning multiple semesters. Our Commercial, Finance and Human Resource teams offer summer-only work assignments. We also offer part-time, year-round work assignments in our Commercial and Finance teams for students local to the Louisville, KY, area.
At GE Appliances, you’ll develop your technical, professional and leadership skills. All our co-op/intern roles are challenging, hands-on and impact business results.
You’ll join a community of co-ops and interns just like you and work on cross-functional committees that offer plenty of opportunities to socialize, network and volunteer. Our co-op/intern programs are the pipeline to our full-time, world-class Development Programs, which means less time searching for a job when you graduate.
We provide competitive pay rates based on the degree you are pursuing and your time in school. Our co-ops/interns are eligible for benefits such as medical and dental coverage. In addition, we offer paid holidays, employee discounts, an on-site fitness center and an on-site well clinic. We provide housing and relocation assistance as well to eligible students.
We visit 25-30 campuses each semester. Check with your school’s Career Services to find out if GE Appliances will be attending your career fair and conducting on-site interviews. You can also visit our Campus Events portal and search by your school to see when we'll be on your campus.
If we are not scheduled to visit your campus, we still encourage you to apply online for roles that interest you and for which you’re qualified. See our full-listing of available opportunities: Student Opportunities Job Board.
If we are attending a career fair at your university, we strongly encourage you to stop by and introduce yourself. In addition to meeting us, you must also formally apply online for positions that interest you.
Yes. You are encouraged to apply for each role that interests you and that matches your skills and qualifications.
If you met with our recruiters and interviewed on-campus, you should expect to hear back from us within 2-3 weeks of your interview.

GE Appliances is an equal opportunity employer. We have sponsored visas for roles requiring a unique or specialized skillset; however, the majority of our co-op/intern roles request that a student be eligible to work in the United Sates for an unrestricted period of time.
GE Appliances was part of the General Electric (GE) portfolio for over 125 years. In June 2016, Haier Group acquired GE Appliances. We pride ourselves on our GE heritage, but look forward to an exciting future under our parent company, the world’s largest appliance brand.
