Internships

Corporate Internship Program

McCarthy Tire Service internships offer high-caliber high school and college students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience in a fast-paced business environment. They develop tangible professional skills that make them competitive in the marketplace. They also learn what it takes to be successful in a multi-million-dollar corporation. Every intern is assigned a manager/mentor who holds regular one-on-one meetings with the student to discuss projects, to monitor progress, and to provide feedback and encouragement.

Students that are interested in an internship at McCarthy Tire are encouraged to contact the human resources office at 570-270-8280. The program is limited to individuals living or attending school in the Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, area.

  • High school juniors and seniors participate in traditional summer internships that support the fiscal department’s daily operations. They learn general administrative and business skills, and they receive encouragement and professional advice as they plan for their higher education. High-performing interns have the option of returning during college breaks.

  • Undergraduates are eligible for more extensive internship placements. Students who demonstrate initiative, leadership potential, and a strong work ethic are placed in the corporate department that aligns with their course of study and career goals. Over the last two years, McCarthy Tire has expanded its internship program by placing undergraduates in the finance, human resources, legal, marketing, and purchasing departments. The positions are structured as:

    • A short-term assignment centered around a specific project
    • A placement that extends for a semester and fulfills university requirements for credit
    • A long-term assignment structured as a part-time job, but with flexible scheduling for college coursework
