    Pros

    Worked on a particular team with large amount of support from all members. Learned more than I thought possible in the 3 month internship, housing was compensated, and worked with a great group of interns.

    Cons

    Not very much structure or initial training for interns. It was a learn as you go experience which was difficult to start but in the end really made a positive difference.

    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn and work in different departments. Fast paced environment so you don't get bored. Good support and training from Line Coordinators and Team Leaders. Great pay and benefits package.

    Cons

    10 hour days constantly, 12 hour days often and 8 or 10 hour days on Saturdays and sundays ( no family life ) A lot of stress to make shipping requirements. HR inconsistent with making and enforcing company policies. Direct family and community members are treated differently than individuals who are not part of the community or not a part of a family group who has years of service with the company.

    Advice to Management

    Treat everyone the same regardless of how they became employed. Enforce your policies equally for all employees and don't single out individuals for different treatments of discipline. Say What You Mean And Mean What You Say. Get more involved with the individual employee, listen to their concerns or questions and make them feel like they are a actual part of the company instead of just some number. Be open and honest with everyone equally at all times not just when it suits some purpose.
