    I worked at Dow full-time

    Pros

    Great summer opportunity for a NAIT student to learn about the workings of a plant. Everything that I was taught always had a focus on safety. If you're in the power or chem eng tech program at NAIT this is the summer job you want. Awesome team to be a part of.
