Intern

Intern (Former Employee)
Salt Lake City, UT

I worked at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints as an intern for less than a year

ProsAwesome environment, everyone is over 65 and has a joke. They are extremely family friendly. One of the best places to work if you want to put in 40 hours a week and no more.

ConsIt can be pretty slow if you are a young guy or unmarried. The dress code is business professionals so no slacks and always a suit and tie even during the summer, it gets pretty old. The pay is pretty horrible.......

Advice to Senior ManagementPay people what their worth.

Best work environment ever.
