I was very impressed with the on-the-job mentoring that I received from my supervisors. I was given a wide variety of tasks to complete, but I always felt comfortable asking questions and I was never given too much to handle at once.
There were certain times that I felt that I could have been contributing more, but the work that was given to me did have limitations. I especially noticed that even though my team would often have to work late hours, I was always sent home in order to be on pace for no more than 40 hours of work per week.
Advice to Potential Interns
If you should choose to select this internship, you will be given a chance to get comfortable in the accounting profession as you build experience with a variety of tasks. The assignments are often basic, but will increase as you prove your competency. The pay is fair, but the hours are limited to 40 per week in most cases so do not expect to be paid any extra for overtime. Some local travel outside of the downtown area may be required.
Advice to Management
I would have appreciated the chance to contribute further to my team by working overtime alongside them when they often had to work late, however I was sent home to keep pace with a 40 hour work week.
