I like the people I work with and the opportunity to get a full time job in the future. Also I feel like I am learning a lot of valuable skills and techniques about sales and also the coorporate world.
The job is very boring. I feel like I am not challenged at all. I never have to do anything that involves me actually thinking, solving problems, or making desicions. Most of what I do is calling people which is fine, it is a great to get the experience to do that early. But I never need to figure out anything, solve problems, or work to my full potential. I know that most of an internship is doing busy-work but I wish I did more work that required more thinking.
Advice to Potential Interns
This internship is really good if you are into sales. It gradually gives you experience with some of the easier aspects as well as teaching you different techniques to use when trying to sell. Also the pay is good. Liberty Mutual is pretty easy going and everyone is nice so I would say it is a good environment to work if you are concerned with getting yelled at and being stressed out because that doesn't happen.
Advice to Management
I would recommend giving the interns more work to keep them busy. Also work that requires more thinking other than just data entry. Also more flexible hours and working from home would be good but I understand that is against company policy. But I feel as though making some of the phone calls would be better to do after 5 when people are home so it would actually be better for the sales reps because that is a better time to get ahold of people.
