Position Overview

The IT PMO leadership team controls the SDLC (System Development Life Cycle) and PMO (Project Management Office) functions. This is essential for budget tracking and audit compliance as we spend millions in capital on development to support business and customer needs. There are 3-4 Project Managers. Each is currently leading a major, transformative project. These include supporting growth in NOS (natural, organic, specialty), independent retail services, and developing an iPad app for our warehouse operations supervisors. Project Managers create essential project documents that move the project through the phases: Initiation, Blueprinting, Development, Testing, and Go-Live. They facilitate meetings, track budget, and manage resource plans.

The intern will be supported with onboarding training, shadowing, and participation in weekly team and project meetings. The hiring manager will meet with the intern one-on-one for 10-15 minutes at the start and end of every day to answer questions and plan work for the first two weeks, and then weekly for coaching throughout the internship.


The intern would be exposed to the SDLC and the PMO day-in-the-life. We would provide the opportunity for the intern to develop project management and presentation skills. The internship would focus on supporting the high volume of testing and training that occurs during the summer across several projects. For example, the Retail Systems project has users testing input data in the web application screens as well as in spreadsheets. Output files and reports also need to be approved in spreadsheets and PDFs. This requires documenting processes, gathering test scenarios, scheduling testing sessions, and collecting documentation and sign off. Testing is an essential part of any project!
