Advice to Potential Interns

The overall environment of the workplace is very positive. Everyone is friendly and has a good sense of humor. However, when it's time to work, it's time to work and everyone is focused. There's no manager breathing over your shoulder, so you're expected to discipline yourself and get your work done up to standards.

I worked 500+ unpaid hours. It was totally worth it.

Flexible Hours - I was able to take a few hours off if I needed to for whatever reason (appointments and such) and make them up on another day.
College Credit - I finished college a semester early and my final semester I had this internship and an online course. It was pretty easy to work 40 hours a week and still get my coursework done. I was able to get the credits I needed and valuable work experience looks great on a resume.
Work Environment - My boss was one of the coolest people I've ever met. There was a relaxed atmosphere that allowed for humor despite being under constant pressure to get features developed and bugs fixed.
Interview Process - As a software developer, I had never had a technical interview until I interviewed for my internship. That alone was a unique, challenging, and rewarding experience.
Mistakes that I made were learning experiences, and I guess I didn't mess up too much, so they offered me a job

Downers

Unpaid - Unfortunately it was unpaid so the fact I wasn't making any money during the 3 months was somewhat difficult to manage.

Advice to Potential Interns

Even if you aren't getting paid, as long as you are willing to sacrifice the money short-term, it will definitely pay off long-term. Not only because you will have valued experience, personal connections, and its and easy transition if you do get hired.

Sample Interview Questions

I had a technical interview, as a software developer. I was given a small set of tasks I had to complete within my interview time slot. It was just so the manager could see that I could actually code and he could observe my coding style and how quickly I could problem solve. Most of the questions were to see if I actually was competent enough to work for them.
"Do you know Agile software development"
"How familiar are you with the programming languages we use"
"You are aware that this internship is unpaid"
"Would you want to work for us if a position became available"

Would You Recommend

Yes

I did real work for real customers. I could not have asked for anything more from an internship.

An Internship Opening Doors to Limitless Possibilities

4.1 of 5 stars

Norfolk, VA | 2015 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best aspects are being able to explore different areas of the company aside from the department I was working in, it gave me the opportunity to see what kind of careers are available le in the company.

Downers

The only con I can really think of is that the internship was unpaid. The company kind of makes up for this though through the LiveNFK program.

Advice to Potential Interns

I would tell any future interns to take advantage of all the company has to offer; go to all the events, go to all the meetings that you can, and network with the employees that work there.

Advice to Management

I got the impression that it is rather difficult to move up in the company unless already in a management position; maybe look at lower level employees that exceed expectations for possible advancements in a any future opportunities,.

Sample Interview Questions

"Why do you want to work here?"
"Why do you hope to gain from this experience?"

Would You Recommend

Yes

Excellent mentorship, excellent experience
