    Recruiting Intern

    Recruiter Intern (Former Employee) Lowell, AR

    ProsGreat experience working as an intern with such a well-known company. Was shown real-life experience in a corporate environment and was depended on much more than just a regular intern.

    ConsTime commitment was a lot with also being a full-time student. Some unprofessional was shown although most of it was cleared up.

    Exciting and rewarding

    Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsFantastic company to work for. It is a Fortune 500 company but still feels small, which which is refreshing in the business world. Strong emphasis on safety culture and having fun at work (while still being productive). Management provides plenty of opportunities to expand your skill set and makes going to work fun. I haven't worked with anyone that I disliked. I couldn't have asked for a better company to intern for this year.

    ConsIt's not always fun working with drivers... but not every job is perfect. There can be some downtime or you can have a crazy hectic day. Unpredictable (but I kind of like it).

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep maintaining small company feel while expanding business.

    Great experience as Finance/Accounting Intern

    Finance (Former Employee) Lowell, AR

    ProsThere is an overall friendly work environment. The company is strong in the industry and growing under good leadership. There is a casual atmosphere in the company.

    ConsThe upper management is generally older and less innovative. Lowell, AR is also a very small town so most employees live in nearby towns and commute.
