We do not have to pay for housing, we are provided a spacious hotel room with our own kitchen, oven, fridge, and freezer. All interns, regardless of their department, live together in the hotel as one community. That is a huge perk when it comes to expanding one's social network. We are only a train ride away from downtown Chicago, which another perk for all interns that are interested in learning more about this awesome city.
The pay and benefits are also great, the work we get is challenging, but it is very meaningful and definitely helps you get to know yourself better as a worker.
I do not have any negative feedback!
Advice to Potential Interns
Discover is a Financial Services organization that focuses on the best interest of all the card members and every single one of its employees. We work hard, but we do so with passion because we all believe in the morale of the company. Definitely fun place to work for young people because of the closeness to the city and the great people that are hired as interns as well.
Advice to Management
Perhaps more training for all interns earlier on, but other than that there is nothing I would add.
