Name and Title
Clay Leidall, Sales and Marketing Intern
How long have you been with TRC and what do like most about working here?
I just started here in June. The thing I like most so far would be the work environment, the people are all very helpful and nice, and it feels like a family right when you walk in.
Where do you go to school?
I go to the University of Minnesota: Twin Cities. I’m studying Supply Chain and Operations and maybe Marketing. I’m hoping to graduate in 2020.
Before working at TRC, what other jobs have you had?
I’ve worked for my dad’s carpet cleaning business, I have also coached little league baseball and worked at a grocery store. Coaching was really fun but the others not so much.
What is your dream job?
I always wanted to be a sports agent and work with some of the bigger names in either baseball or basketball.
Why did you choose to get an internship at TRC?
I chose to get an internship to get some real-life experience just to help myself out after college. I picked TRC mainly because I knew it was reputable and a good sized company with 2 locations. This is their first time doing an internship, and I thought it would be a good learning experience in a great environment with a lot of great people.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
I love sports, and play amateur baseball in Owatonna. Also pheasant hunting and a lot of other outdoor activities.
