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

Performing tasks from all aspects of business, great people to work with. Made some life long friends, mostly because you spend 12 hours a day with them. Big emphasis on customer service, and it is a "competition" to see which branches are doing the best based off of a survey system that is completely random.

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

Very long hours, not much down time. Zero social life this summer

Feedback to management about the internship/co-op program: 

Great experience with a well known and recognized company and program. People here are amazing and make the day fun. Pretty easy work to do, but still interesting and fun to deal with all different kinds of customers. Hours were way too much though (7am-7pm) and branches were at times short staffed for rush hours.

Advice to future interns applying to this company? 

Be ready to work a lot! Hopefully they are in the process of minimizing the work week hours. It was fun otherwise, deal with some crappy customers but also a lot of fun and happy ones.
