At KEI, we believe that in order to satisfy our external clients, we first need to satisfy our internal ones: our people. Our commitment to employee satisfaction and development stems from a firm belief that our people are our most valuable resource.  We celebrate birthdays, work anniversaries, babies, weddings and more. We do our best to maintain a healthy work-life balance for our team and work hard to provide a positive, creative and nurturing work environment. Because we have multiple multiple locations, not everyone has an opportunity to interact daily, but on a regular basis we schedule training, social activities and other events to gather as a full team. 

KEI's Internship Program

The goal of our Internship Program is to provide interns with some “hands-on” experience in a fast-paced, real-world industry setting. During the program, interns will have the opportunity to experience all aspects of how a large, full-service landscape company operates. You will have the opportunity to be involved in company meetings, outings, training seminars and special intern events.

Each specific program begins with an in-depth orientation that serves to communicate everyone’s expectations and develop a plan to best meet the goals of both the intern and the company.


This program is recommended for students who haven’t had a previous internship experience. Students will spend time in each of the following areas:

  • Landscape Management

  • Landscape Construction

  • Landscape Enhancement

  • Interior Plantscaping and Holiday Decorating (optional)

  • Sales and Customer Service

  • Estimating and Design

  • Management and Administration


This program is recommended for students who have had some previous work or internship experience and wish to focus on a particular area of interest.

Students will spend the majority of their time in one particular area and will be given responsibility for a summer-long project, but will also have the opportunity to gain some experience in other divisions.


This program is available to assist students in meeting criteria that may be required by their specific school.
