Amazing internship opportunity!


Uppers

Learning about the company culture and how you are surrounding by co-workers that are there to help you succeed throughout the internship. There is amazing growth within the company and I was able to continuously learn about new products and shadow other veterans in the business to improve in my craft.


Downers

The long hours during the major holidays, (memorial day & 4th of July)


Advice to Potential Interns

I believe that this internship is really amazing for those who want to grow and improve in sales. I don't think it's the right job for everybody, especially those that are shy interacting with people. I've seen the more successful interns become top in sales because they were competitive, easy-going with people, and socially fun to be around.


Advice to Management

I think that management needs to interview the right intern coordinators for each district. I've witness certain interns fail at what they were doing because they were not properly trained. Such as not knowing what a Q45g was in front of a customer. The more successful interns had the right coordinators properly guiding them throughout the internship.

Great opportunity to learn sales and make money!!!


Uppers

Being able to be thrown into to the sales floor as if we were full time employees. It allowed us to learn very quickly and mature.


Downers

How slow it could be at times and how there were a lot of uncontrollable aspects to the job.


Advice to Potential Interns

Listen and learn from others who are very good at their job. It is free advice and it will help you greatly.


Advice to Management

Have fewer loose ends with the day to day operations. There was a very similar as a whole but the day to day aspects greatly differentiated.

I feel ready to go out into the real world after doing this internship.

This internship gave a lot of real world experience that I could apply to any job.

The hours that one has to work each day makes it hard to maintain a good work - life balance.

You might want to rethink taking summer classes while doing this internship.
