    I have been working at R.J. O'Brien as an intern (less than a year)


    Management is accessible and helpful. Given significant responsibilities as an intern.


    Company reach is relatively narrow. No real opportunities to earn full time employment through internship program. Little to no formal feedback.

    Positive Outlook

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at R.J. O'Brien in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    HR Department was reasonably responsive when queried. Long period between interview and notification that an offer would not be extended. Phone interview was with actual hiring manager, not with HR, so it was easier to get immediate feedback about expected knowledge, etc. In-person interview was long, with 3 separate 1:1 interviews from hiring manager up to C-level. Refreshments were offered.
