Former Employee - Brand Management Intern in Atlanta, GA
Former Employee - Brand Management Intern in Atlanta, GA

I worked at Marathon Petroleum as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

They gave me a relocation bonus when they moved me to work in a satellite office in Atlanta

Cons

They made me drive around by myself to rural and dangerous urban areas to take pictures of gas stations. In answer to my questions my boss, more often than not answered: "You wouldn't understand", there was no inter-office unity and I was isolated from the rest of the interns who worked at headquarters, the office was full of buttoned up middle aged men who did things together but never thought to invite anyone else. Terrible work environment. Oh and when I asked what they were going to use my culminating project for they told me that it probably wouldn't be used for naything.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Teach your managers how to deal with interns. Teach men how to include and respect women. Create a more formal program for interns that both helps them develop AND keeps them in a more safe evironment. Challenge the interns more and include them in more meetings so they can learn. Also, be more up front about the aspects of the role.

    I worked at Marathon Petroleum

    Pros

    The work was very easy and we never had to do anything but the pay wasn't very good or high at all

    Cons

    Cleaning bath rooms sucked and it stunk and the pay was way to low for the work I had to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should pay more to the employees that are working very hard doing hard jobs in hot weather And cold weather
