PHO internships are for students with one or more semesters left until graduation after their internship. Interns will spend 10-weeks working on an impactful business project for their department, networking with business partners, gaining knowledge and advice from a dedicated mentor and manager and engaging in structured learning activities with their fellow interns. Each year interns will also work on group projects with their peers coming up with real world solutions and ideas.


Distribution Center

DC internships are for Juniors working toward a Bachelor’s degree. They follow a 10-week structured learning path that will educate them on the functional areas of a PetSmart Distribution Center. This will enhance their personal leadership and communication skills in preparation for a leadership career in Supply Chain Management as a DC Leader In Training.



Canada Home Office

Canada Home Office internships are typically focused on students who are looking for working experience while completing their Masters with the majority of our students coming from the DeGroot School of Business, McMaster University, as the school is minutes away from our Home Office location. Interns are hired three times during the year: Winter, Spring & Fall. Interns spend approximately 16 weeks working on impactful business project, networking with business partners, and gaining valuable knowledge and advice from their dedicated manager. Internships at our Canada Home Office focus on providing meaningful on-the-job experience and it is a way to give back to the school community.
