L&P Hosts Information Session at Missouri S&T

L&P’s Adjustable Bed Engineering group recently organized an information session for potential job and internship candidates at Missouri S&T. During the event, they talked about L&P’s rich history in the manufacturing industry and shared the real-world learning opportunities that our internships can provide.

To generate additional excitement with the students, they demonstrated one of L&P’s adjustable bases along with a working display case that included the various Internet of Things items able to integrate with the bed. The mechanical and electrical engineering students were impressed with the opportunities for learning offered by our internship program including the ability to collaborate on the development of new products.

Internships are available across various cross-functional backgrounds including: mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronics engineering, mobile app development, cloud software engineering, embedded software development, and more.

Doors 2021: L&P Interns Connect Virtually

L&P’s Doors program helps interns learn, grow, and contribute. Over the years, interns have helped to change the landscape of IT, engineering, marketing, human resources, and accounting at Leggett & Platt.

This summer, a creative approach allowed our interns to still experience Doors while also staying safe throughout the pandemic. All events were delivered through virtual conference calls as our interns worked in remote or hybrid situations.

While these students were never able to meet face-to-face, they engaged through online development sessions and speed networking events. We’re very proud of them for embracing this unique working environment and thank them for sharing their incredible talents with L&P!

Doors 2019: Highlights From Our Summer Program

Doors_4C_primaryWith fall just around the corner (can you believe it?), we say goodbye to another incredible internship class. This summer, we hosted 19 Doors interns participating from various Corporate departments, three local branches, and even Switzerland!

Our interns enjoyed getting to know each other through social events, developmental opportunities, tours of local operations, and exposure to company leaders. The summer finished strong with their final presentations and a closing luncheon to recognize their achievements.

Here are a few glimpses into our summer!

As Doors kicked off, several former interns (now full-time employees) shared advice on how to get the most out of the internship. Each intern was also paired with an employee ambassador who answered questions and mentored them throughout the summer.

The program culminated with each intern presenting their summer’s projects in front of peers and executives.
