Intern Reviews


  • "The company culture here is unlike any other I have seen. Everyone here is so passionate about Radio Flyer and loves seeing people succeed as well as the company. Questions are welcome and so is team collaboration to complete tasks and projects. The company is very diligent with training and tries getting me involved in as much as possible, without overwhelming me. They also care a lot about professional/personal development and there are classes throughout that are there to learn."
  • "Radio Flyer is an incredibly supportive and fun place to work. From the beginning, my manager set very clear expectations and has supported me on meeting those. I am required to work 40 hours, and no more time is expected of me. There is also an half-day Friday option available for all Flyers, including interns, and folks are very open to time off as needed for out of work events."
  • "The culture at Radio Flyer plays an integral role in the company. Even from a remote internship, the company's culture was very strong and clear which made me want to accept a full-time offer. The added benefit of summer hours also helped guide me through my internship."
  • "Radio Flyer truly believes and lives its mission, vision, and values. That is directly reflected in my quality of life while working here. The employees care about the people, the products, and the journey."
