Meet the Interns

Hear from some of our former interns as they share their insights on what surprised them most about their summer internship experience at WEX.

WEX summer intern Marcus


What struck me most about working at WEX was the level of visibility and connectivity I was afforded as an intern. Within my first few weeks, I was working on projects that executives would see and receiving invitations to lunches and coffee from senior leadership.

Coming into WEX as a rising sophomore I thought I was only going to be shadowing my manager. They gave me real work from day one, and although it was a lot of responsibility, I enjoyed knowing that I was doing work that mattered.
