At GAF, putting a roof over your head is the foundation of our business. As we continue to pursue the excellence that has led us to the top, one thing is constant - it's all the best in the industry and it's made by the best people in the industry.



GAF products have been designed and made for more than 125 years by talent and innovation emanating from the minds of its employees. All 3,200 of us are champions of our values, some of which include innovation, safety, quality and integrity, and we work for a company that rewards us for it. That's why we've grown into a $3+ billion leader in the building materials industry.



Students will be invited to work at GAF's newest, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Cedar City, Utah, supporting the production of high quality commercial roofing materials, TPO, PVC and ISO.



Come build your future as we build the American dream - one roof at a time.

* Each assignment lasts a school term, and you may be invited to return to GAF Corporation for additional terms while you continue your education.

* During your assignment, you will have a mentor - someone who will act as a coach to help you better understand both our company and your work responsibilities.
