What did you like best about your internship/co-op? What type of work were you doing?

I really enjoyed the sales aspect of the job. This was my first sales position and it gave me a good understanding of how to effectively communicate the benefits of our products with customers. I also enjoyed driving in all of the new rental vehicles, as well as travelling for training/volunteering.

What did you like least about your internship/co-op?

Non-busy days can go by extremely slowly, and it seems like there is lots of time spent waiting for phone calls and customers. Additionally, it seems like there is a disconnect or a lack of communication between branch employees and head office workers. This seems to frequently cause frantic last minute plans, and a misuse of company resources.

Advice to future interns applying to this company? 

Be competitive in regards to the matrix, and befriend the other interns in your group. Sales competitions against the other interns/employees makes the job far more interesting, and the company rewards its employees for their success.
