The US Foods Summer Internship Program provides a forum for students to apply classroom skills and academic training in a real-world business environment. In addition to being assigned business-impacting projects throughout the summer, students will be matched with a manager who will meet with them on a regular basis to provide direction on assignments as well as deliver performance feedback and a mentor who will be available to offer day-to-day guidance and support.

Interns will also get exposure to US Foods executive leadership; have an opportunity to participate in learning and social events with other interns across business functions and have an opportunity to deliver an end of summer presentation to showcase their accomplishments with key business leaders.

US Foods internships are full-time paid positions (40 hours per week from June - August) with the possibility of transitioning to a full-time position post-graduation dependent on availability and overall performance.

This position has been segmented as Blended meaning the work is a combination of onsite and remote/virtual (as defined by the role segmentation).

Please note: We are unable to provide internships to students that require sponsorship for employment visa status (e.g., H-1B visa status). Candidates who possess the unqualified right to work in the United States are eligible to apply.

Local candidates are encouraged to apply. For qualified students whose permanent home of record is located outside 50 miles from US Foods Corporate HQ, a stipend will be offered to partially offset housing costs for the summer.


With direct supervision and oversight, the intern position provides exposure and opportunity to investigate a career, gain business knowledge and practical application of application development within the food distribution industry.

US Foods has a number of opportunities that will exercise and develop the intern&##39;s skills in front-end and/or back-end web application development. Opportunities include our customer and employee web sites, portal-based internal applications, and mobile applications. The intern will engage in creating APIs that share product information, gather and submit order detail or execute data transformation services in addition to front end development all with the goal of creating an outstanding experience for users while leveraging the latest technologies.
