4.5 of 5 stars

Inspiring Internship--learn to connect others.
Kansas City, MO | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The best aspects of my internship are: being responsible for real work, being believed-in by all other coworkers, knowing that I am making a difference in people's lives.


Downers

I did not like how long it took to become accustomed to a full-time job.


Advice to Potential Interns

Know that you are responsible for your own work, and having a positive attitude everyday.


Advice to Management

We noticed that the business interns here are paid $5 more per hour than creative interns... This is a huge gap and the work that creatives do is very intense. It seems as though the business interns have less work, going by the conversations we have had with them. It's unfair.

Advice to Potential Interns

Make sure to talk with as many people in the company as possible. The company functions based on employee relationships and the culture is what drives the company. Person needs to make sure they are a people person and can function well with others before making a decision on this company.

Graciously welcomed and put right to exciting, fulfilling work.
Kansas City, MO | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Opportunity to understand how my degree and the things I know can be useful in the 'real world'. Hope that I can 'make it' as a professional and as an artist.


Downers

I sometimes didn't take the initiative to ask questions about how I was doing and was often unduly worried that I was doing a poor job.


Advice to Potential Interns

Look at the work Hallmark is doing and tailor your work to it -- BUT also let WHO YOU ARE shine through. Hallmark is interested in YOUR voice/point-of-view!


Advice to Management

I am treated better than well!

Real World Experience
Kansas City, MO | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The assignments I was given were actually useful to the company, and helped the other members in my department. It is an assignment I could have gotten as a full time employee in the department. Hallmark also provided and incredible opportunity to network with people throughout the finance department and other senior leaders.


Downers

Could have been more social events for interns, and better participation in those events by other interns.


Advice to Potential Interns

Go in with an open mind, and accept any challenges that come your way.


Advice to Management

Very good all around

Kansas City, MO | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN

Everyone is very friendly and helpful. Employees want you to succeed. Great food in the Crown Room. Cafe right down the stairs that serves Starbucks. Get to have a forum with top Hallmark leadership. Fun intern activities throughout the summer planned by recruiters. You learn alot!


Downers

Dealing with IT is a pain but thats how it is everywhere.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to learn as you go and give it your all.

Outstanding
Kansas City, MO | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Being treated and respected like a full-time employee, given tasks that are meaningful to the company, given the opportunity to network with many upper-level managers and other employees


Downers

Not always a steady workflow


Advice to Potential Interns

Hallmark is an excellent place to work. The culture and atmosphere is amazing, the employees have such a passion for the company and their work which makes the job even better. Everyone is so friendly, our products actually touch people's lives, and the compay is in a great location. Kansas City in general has a lot to offer and with Hallmark being located at Crown Center it makes it that much more attractive.


Advice to Management

The only thing that I have seen that Hallmark can improve on is their training process. Just doing a better, more efficient job with that could help.

The twelve weeks of reassurance for my future career
Kansas City, MO | 2013 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The opportunity to meet directors and exectuives of the business. The projects we receive are actual need based and interesting at the same time. I never felt once as an intern but was depended on and expected to perform like a full time hire.


Downers

Being seperated from other interns. Which also became a pro because so many of us have a different perspective on the company from working in different areas.


Advice to Potential Interns

The finance roles and internships are very valuable to expand business knowledge. Hallmark has such a wide variety of work that you can see in a summer that would be very beneficial to any career path you shall choose.
