    Good Internship Environment

    Storm Water - Intern (Former Employee) Griffin, GA

    ProsGood pay for a straight out of high school internship. The people were nice and fairly laid back. A lot of autonomy. Good variety of tasks required; you won't be bored. Entertaining people. Good job if you like fresh air. Good GIS and Civil experience.

    ConsA lot of exposure outside, bring sunscreen and stay hydrated. The pay stays slightly above minimum wage, no matter how many years of college have passed. Lots of annoying/hazardous creatures to deal with (mosquitos, black widows, snakes, etc). Strict driving policies; even getting a warning for speeding will get you fired.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWarn your interns about exposure and dehydration, those are serious risks for this job. Provide them with drinks. Plenty of college internships pay more, if you want more than cheap labor then pay them what they're worth.

    ProsIt was close to my house

    ConsI was able to make lots of changes to the city and improve many of their infrastructures.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to your employees and treat them as an asset. If you treat your employees right they won't always be disgruntled and look for other opportunities. Also, pay them comparable to other industry positions.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
