    Pros

    They really treat you as an equal when you're an intern here, you will meet people from all different departments of the airport, get to do real work relevant to your career goals, and go on exclusive tours of various parts of the airport. Also very good and fair pay.

    Cons

    The processing stage (getting fingerprinting results, getting badged, going through paperwork) before you start your internship takes FOREVER. Delayed the start of my internship by a month.

    Pros

    Everyone is friendly for the most part and it is pretty awesome being able to work at an airport and meet so many different people.

    Cons

    The work can become somewhat boring, there is not much work for an intern to work on and it is hard to bring a good intern on as a permanent employee.

    Advice to Management

    The management was very nice and always had an open door policy if you needed to talk to them about anything.

    Pros

    Allow students to get a good understanding of how the airport runs and also lets them see the details behind the scenes. Encourages the students to go on tours and see more than just the department they work on.

    Cons

    At the time there were too many interns and did not always have a lot of work. Management sometimes favored the women interns and were less involved with the men and there work or projects.

    Advice to Management
