Ready to have a career where your work has purpose and your colleagues care about your well-being? At Greif, you have the opportunity to grow and thrive. 

Internships & Co-Ops

At Greif, we value the growth & development of talent, our established Early Career program continues to evolve in the US and globally and are proud to host our a group of ambitious college students every summer for our Internship program, and throughout the year for our Manufacturing Co-Op opportunities.

Our Interns are provided extensive opportunities for professional development, networking and collaboration. Internship opportunities are available in our corporate and manufacturing facilities and focus on providing opportunities to participate in cross-functional projects and observe how we operate and make business decisions.

We continue to develop our relationships with local universities, which have remained essential partners in identifying talented candidates. We continue to look to expand these partnerships and internship programs globally. Please see our careers page for current internship opportunities.

Training and development are integral aspects of our development strategies. In 2021, we launched Greif University, and in 2022, we expanded our offerings of strategic learning topics such as the Greif Business System, compliance and leadership development.

Through Greif University, we continued our Know and Grow with Greif program: a global offering of monthly instructor-led presentations. Greif University enables us to integrate compliance and code of conduct training better and provide ease of access to relevant and engaging learning for our colleagues. When needed, we incorporate regional training programs to supplement global training.

We utilize Greif University alongside LinkedIn Learning to track required training information to ensure compliance with internal policies and applicable regulations. Since implementing Greif University, we have seen increased learning material utilization and higher completion rates

In 2022, we debuted our Lead to Last program, Greif’s Global Leadership Development Framework. This program, offered through Greif University, provides all global leaders with a unified model for leadership expectations, with cohorts launching every month. This training is conducted in 12-week cycles where participants focus on inclusive, safety and values-driven leadership. Currently, training is offered in English, Spanish, Chinese and Portuguese.

In 2021, we launched Greif University, our training platform with over 100 different strategic learning offerings. Greif University serves as a unified place where all employees can go for development.

We offer hundreds of thousands of courses and learning modules in different categories, including Customer Service Excellence, Environmental Health & Safety and Leadership & Professional Development.

Performance meeting

Greif seeks to maintain an ongoing performance dialogue with colleagues. Our performance management allows us to effectively communicate performance expectations and conduct annual performance appraisals.

Competency frameworks enable the assessment and development of our colleagues’ knowledge, attitudes, skills and behaviors. All professional, clerical and administrative colleagues — approximately 29 percent of Greif’s workforce —participate in an annual Performance Development Review.

As part of our global talent management processes, we encourage leaders to conduct quarterly check-ins and focus on Individual Development Plans (IDPs) to support opportunities for colleagues to learn and develop. Greif provides resources for managers to successfully communicate with their team to create IDPs, progress on their career path, set short and long-term goals and negotiate fair wages.

We continue to explore opportunities to utilize mentorship programs, internal certified coaches and career pathing implementation. We believe implementing these programs, alongside a deeper discussion of individualized goal setting, will promote further employee engagement.
