Yesterday's Interns – Today's Leaders!

Catch up with some of our successful former interns!

Billy Wood

Safety and Strategy Analyst, ThompsonGas
Former Management Intern

“The internship experience allowed me the opportunity to learn and understand how the company operates at all levels. The ability to gain first hand experience is essential in order to understand our company's processes. As I have moved into the Safety department, I can make that much more of an impact because the time I have spent getting to truly see how people impact the company. ”

Laura Hasani

Senior Talent Strategy Administrator, ThompsonGas
Former Management Intern

“My internship experience was extraordinary with the support I had at the Huntsville branch and getting to learn from a great group of individuals in different functions. From the first day I worked in the branch, they made me feel apart of the family and ensured I had everything I needed to have a successful summer. This feeling was not just how the employees treated each other but also our customers, ensuring we were giving them peace of mind on every call. Making these great connections with our communities and knowing I had the support of everyone allowed me to optimize on a great opportunity to grow in a great industry.

When I got the opportunity to present my project, the most impactful feeling was knowing what I worked on over the summer was going to help and support a variety of employees. I came in not knowing much about the propane industry and was excited to jump right in, learn from others, and develop something that I would be proud of. The project taught me that even though you may not know something, that does not mean you can’t do anything. You can set yourself up for success by communicating with anyone at the branch, asking for help, and embracing the challenge..”

Noah Hurd

Data Analyst, ReLi Energy
Former Management Intern

“As a finance major, I certainly didn’t expect to find myself in the propane industry. What started as a summer internship opportunity quickly blossomed into a job I love. Working at ThompsonGas has allowed me to immerse myself into the dynamic world of propane. My internship experience was filled with learning, support, and personal growth. I appreciated the structure of the internship program: spending my summer learning the daily operations of a propane company while also working to complete a larger, summer-long project to present to the leadership team. I’ve found fulfillment working to grow ThompsonGas’s metered propane program, called ReLi. Focusing on ReLi’s growth has provided me countless opportunities to learn more about the propane industry, and how ReLi will change it all. The ThompsonGas community is truly exceptional . People here enjoy their work, and deeply care to see the job done right. ThompsonGas is special because the entire organization is invested in safety, innovation and providing exceptional service to our customers."
