The early hours I had to work.


Advice to Potential Interns

This is an internship that forces you to take the initiative. You aren't treated as an intern, you are treated just like any other associate.

An unbelievable HR experience in a company that values its people, culture, and values
Columbus, OH | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was able to do a LOT of onboarding with different areas of the company. I learned a lot about the company as a whole, and was developed in my career by my supervisor


Downers

Even though I was told I did a phenomenal job, I was not given further opportunity in the company


Advice to Potential Interns

Take the time to sit down and interview multiple areas of the company. Understanding what each department does is very helpful in career development. It also gives you a wide network of contacts for future endeavors.

Learning to be all you can be, not only in the work place but also in the community.
Columbus, OH | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

the community involvement, the company involvement, the company atmosphere, the acceptance of interns (not just go get coffee or make copies)


Downers

the participation for some of the events was not 100%, which can't be controlled always but I really didn't get to interact with other interns in other departments


Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure your values align with the values of any company you chose to work for. If work life balance is what you require make sure that's an option with the company.

BEST PLACE TO WORK... PERIOD.
Columbus, OH | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Exposure to leadership; Opportunities to go above and beyond my job description; Great company culture


Downers

Length of internship... way too short!


Advice to Potential Interns

For any candidates out there considering Limited Brands, here are my food for thought: Limited Brands is a place where you can mold your internship-- which can be a good thing or a bad thing. The company does not hold your hand through every step of the internship but instead lays the responsibility for making the most out of the internship program on the interns. The opportunities for networking and professional development are numerous.. but an intern has to constantly be proactive to seek it out.


Advice to Management

I would love for the internship program to get a better exposure to the company's relationship with the community. If my department wasn't so closely linked with Community Relations, I would have never known know much Limited Brands give to support Columbus and NYC. I think the exposure would help solidify Limited Brands' reputation as a "best place to work"

Learning the aspects of apparel merchandising as it relates to the success of the business
Columbus, OH | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The opportunity to meet other departments, the trip to New York, working in Victoria's Secret Lingerie


Downers

The other interns (coming from the same school became clicky), and made it a bit frustrating to work with.


Advice to Potential Interns

Dont be afraid to be curious and ask questions!!


Advice to Management

Delegate interns from all different schools that way it eliminates cliques but it really is a great work environment otherwise

Opportunities Vastly Exceeded Expectations: Intern Discovers Career Insights, Desires, and Opportunities
Columbus, OH | 2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I had a plethora of opportunities to develop and enhance relationships throughout my internship.


Downers

The process for determining my future prospects could be more clear.


Advice to Potential Interns

It is a tremendous company that provides opportunities you could never imagine. Whether you have a clear career path in mind or are still deciding, Limited Brands will give you opportunities to grow.


Advice to Management

For Limited Brands to become a better place to work for interns would be difficult. However, I do think a more clear process to full-time opportunities within the enterprise or a specific internship program geared toward students with advanced degrees rather than a general internship program would help the experience feel more tailored and make advanced degree candidates feel like they are clearly recognized for their capabilities during their internship.
