Hi! Have you looked at The Walt Disney Company? They hire lots of IEs to help them figure out the best guest experience in their parks and resorts. AND they are a great place to work. Check them out!

I'm not an industrial engineer myself but my friends have worked at the following companies. I suggest you look at their websites, stalk their LinkedIn profiles, and look at what companies alumni at your school or school of choice work for. Also look into your local or regional utility companies (power, water, internet), city planning/government agencies, and federal departments.

I am an industrial engineer myself and have been in the field for over 7 years now! I currently work for Target and I love it!
Keep in mind a company might not hire for the job title "Industrial Engineer" but the industrial engineering field is so diverse that there are many things we can do! Think things like Quality, Continuous Improvement, Lean, Logistics etc.
I have friends who work for FedEx, UPS, NAVAIR, Amazon, Walmart (Jet.com), Burlington Coat Factory, etc.
Almost any company that has a warehouse usually look for engineers and that is where I primarily have spent my career.
