    Former Intern - Accounting Assistant in Harrisonburg, VA

    I worked at ARAMARK as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The schedule was very flexible. As a student, they worked around my class schedule very well. The environment was very non corporate and somewhat relaxed.

    Cons

    Since it was an internship and a small office, there was not much room for growth. Some of the tasks were repetitive and boring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There was not much more I expected from this internship. The opportunity to learn in an office atmosphere was great, however more responsibility would have been appreciated.
