    It all depends on your manager but most managers are fine if you take one or two days off during your internship

    Not being there was good, coming back was bad

    If you're not full time, earnings are slow.

    I never received the full week of paid vacation that my District Trainer told my class we would be getting. When I called Human Resources, they had no idea what I was talking about and told me several different PTO policies.
