    Management Trainee Intern

    Management Trainee (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsGiven that I spent a mere two and a half months with the company, I learned a surprisingly large amount about the business, people and even myself. It is a challenging, fast paced environment that always makes you think and figure out things for yourself - in a way of developing the entrepreneur within. I met a lot of dependable and hard-working people and gained some really valid bonus points on my resume

    ConsWhile working at Enterprise(during the summer) I was still finishing up my last two classes for my Bachelors degree. During the interview, I was told that it would not be an issue to maintain the school/work balance. BUT, during the summer, working up to 50 hours a week and having class the other 10 hours a week can be very draining and you almost forget that once you had friends and a life.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI realize that running a "tight" branch with a little amount of personal is clear dollar signs in the making BUT, it makes the regular MT's, Intern's life much more difficult. At that point you double up as a sales person, a driver, and a car prep (washer). Not the most ideal position for $10/hour - (intern, Dallas, TX)

    Good Start to a career

    Management Trainee (Current Employee) Columbia, SC

    ProsGreat potential to promote, work experience here looks great on your resume

    Consnot enough work/life balance, professional dress to wash cars... not for me

    Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on providing more support to middle management. They are the front line of what a management trainee comes into contact with, and it would be best if they are prepared and professional towards the management trainees. Only one assistant manager in my branch conducted himself in the appropriate manner.

    Hours too long but great job out of college

    Management Assistant (Current Employee) Raleigh, NC

    ProsWill gain personal growth and develop great relationships

    ConsWork 50 plus hours a week. Plus work every other Saturday. Pay grade does not match up what is expected out of all the time

    Advice to Senior ManagementFind a way to cut hours because we all know that you are not going to pay more

    If you want to work in sales

    Management Trainee Intern (Current Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsGreat company culture. For the most part most everyone you will meet is friendly and outgoing. They put a lot into training their employees and preparing them for work. You learn sales and there is opportunity for continued employment at the end of the internship.

    As an intern balancing school and work, they are very flexible and understand you have other things going on.

    ConsThe company downplays the amount of sales you will be doing. Sets false expectations for what other skills the intern is hoping to acquire or work on.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is great, but when hiring be sure to specify that the majority of the work the intern will be doing is sales.
