Opportunities Vastly Exceeded Expectations: Intern Discovers Career Insights, Desires, and Opportunities


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.

An unbelievable HR experience in a company that values its people, culture, and values


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.

Being able to communicate with leaders in the business as well as working with people of all ages, cultures, and different belliefs.

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.

Learning to be all you can be, not only in the work place but also in the community.


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.


Advice to Management

I loved working for Limited Brands, there isn't specific advice I have right now to give management

BEST PLACE TO WORK... PERIOD.


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"

As an Intern, I was acting as a starting level position in Merchandising.


Uppers

Everyday tasks and experiences that a starting level Merchant would go though. Networking with othern. Organized program that offered knowledge and expertise in other areas of the field. Leadership presentations. End of the Internship presentation to show what I learned.


Downers

I do not have any negatives


Advice to Potential Interns

Passion and excitement for you job should be the most important decision factor before accepting a full time position.

Yes

Great People, Enjoyable Place to go to work!


Uppers

Managers/Supervisors were extremely helpful. Doing meaningful work that was implemented. Getting great management experience.


Downers

The hours can be tough if you are not ready for it. 6 am- 2:30 pm.


Advice to Potential Interns

I can say nothing but great things about Limited Brands espically the MAST Global Logistics team. Everyone was extremely helpful towards me and willing to go out of their way to help teach me the operations of a DC. My only advice would be go into this internship looking to do impactful work because that is what you will be doing. The hours (6 am- 2:30 pm) take a little bit to get used to but after a week it is not too bad.


Advice to Management

I enjoyed my experience, I would have liked to seen more of the Brand, but looking back at my schedule I don't see how I would have time because I was busy throughout the day.
