Pros

Friendly staff and supervisors. Everybody, from the administrative staff to the executives and VPs, treated me, an intern, like a part of the WM family. Great mentors and outstanding HR personnel. Just an overall outstanding internship program.

Cons

At times, things got slow and the work load became a bit mundane. I don't believe there is much of a chance to be hired full time after graduation; not sure that full time positions exist for new grads in engineering.

    Pros

    There really arent many...besides the fact you get a paycheck every week if hourly and benefits are decent.

    Cons

    Management staff is poorly trained and have no clue as to what they are doing. Pretty much they show up to work, make a bunch of mistakes and others are expected to fix them. Limited amount of upward mobility.

    Advice to Management

    Have some accountability for the screwups you make and learn to properly fix them.

    Pay was extremely competitive, flexibility to plan your day, great benefits

    Cons

    highly stressful, management focused purely on spreadsheets instead of relationships

    Advice to Management

    focus more on gaining new accounts instead of price increasing loyal customers.
