    I worked at SHRM as an intern


    1. Interesting work assignments
    2. Intelligent, yet kind and thoughtful coworkers
    3. Work/Life balance
    4. Fair pay
    5. Very willing to help me get to the next step of my career


    1. Poor inter-department communication means redundant and/or conflicting information is presented to the public. While many organizations struggle with the same issue, there is room for improvement here.
    2. While I enjoyed doing the work I was assigned, I was assigned work infrequently. Some but not all interns expressed similar feelings. Episodes of boredom earns SHRM a 4/5 instead of 5/5

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job overall. Have a plan keep your interns occupied before you hire them. Thanks for the opportunity.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at SHRM.

    Interview Details

    1st interview - telephone interview. 2nd interview was with potential boss (HRperson that was supposed to sit in on the interview came after the interview had ended) 3rd interview was a 3 part process 1) interview with the boss of the potential boss, the potential boss 2) interview with a potential peer and a potential team member and 3) interview with HR.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult or unexpected questions. It was all pretty standard interview questions. The 2nd interview was an exercise of questions from a behavioral assessment packet. The interviewer's time management of the process could have been better. He spent the entire time asking those questions, which left very little time for me to ask the questions I prepared. I did ask a few.   View Answer
