    Great Work Environment for an Intern

    Inside Sales Analyst (Former Employee)
    Shippensburg, PA

    ProsVCE provided a huge amount of knowledge to its interns, they really showed that they cared about helping you learn the industry and better yourself as an employee.
    My team was all young people fresh out of college, we did team bonding events every month that ranged from dealer and port visits to cook outs and lazer tag.
    Everyone at VCE took the time to help you through your problems, and everyone was eager to pass along their knowledge.

    ConsSales and marketing can be demanding sometimes, you will have to keep on top of your game if you want to succeed

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Good Experience with a Global Company

    Intern (Current Employee)

    ProsRelatively flexible hours (as long as you get 40hrs/week), Knowledgable employees willing to answer your questions, Gives you experience communicating with people in other countries through various mediums to complete tasks, Pay is competitive and some departments will pay for housing

    ConsToo many processes that slow down progress, The location is horrible with very little to do around it,

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo some Intern "Mixers" to allow interns to get to know eachother.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    It's a job not career

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsRelax and lay back environment. If you don't get into political issues, jobs here seem to be secure. They can create work to keep all the people. 4 weeks vacation from the start. Good work life balance, especially you are turning retirement age.

    ConsVery high turnover rate. Not sure why, but just see people changing. When you work into processes, things can be really slow and frustrating.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI think they should change the management to attract talented people.

    Create company, poor management and salary

    Intern (Current Employee)
    Shippensburg, PA

    ProsGreat experience and good company profile. Freedom to work independently and network. Treated as an equal rather than as an intern.

    ConsWhile treated as an equal and expected to work as an equal pay is still intern level. Management really doesnt know what it wasnt to do and is constantly changing its mind without distinct direction. Decisions are made on the fly and then frequently changed. Also no jobs available for grads. Just uses interns as cheap labor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEstablish clear objectives and goals for the company. Also keep pace with what competitors are paying their interns, you are grossly underpaying and losing out when all the good interns leave for better companies.

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

    Volvo is focused on it's people not just it's profits

    Product Development Engineer (Current Employee)
    Shippensburg, PA

    ProsVolvo provides free Starbucks coffee in it's office as well as great health and wellness benefits. Pay is comparable with other companies and the vacation amount is much better. The PA location is nice. It provides access to rural as well as city living, depending on what your preference is.

    ConsNeed some better restaurants in the area for lunch

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
