Learned a lot during my time as an intern and loved the people who worked there. They were always willing to answer my questions and made me feel as though I could do anything I set my mind to.
There were no cons that I noticed!
Advice to Management
Keep up the great work!
I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Georgia Ports Authority (Savannah, GA).
I applied online. Was sent a link via email to schedule my interview. The link provided you with a calendar and time of when to schedule your interview. It also shows how many other candidates were interviewing as well. Interview schedule ran from Monday - Thursday. I chose to interview on the last day. I arrived to the interview and checked in with the security person, who asked for my name and ID. Once I she logged me in and informed my interviewer that I had arrived, she gave me the job description of the position. I was taken back by one of the interviewers. I was interviewed by an HR staff member and the Supervisor of the position. The Supervisor was very friendly and welcoming in the interview, however the HR staff member appeared to be somewhat disinterested and maintained a poker face, and seemed quite indifferent throughout the entire interview, which made it quite difficult to complete the interview. The Supervisor of the position was very honest about the position, stated and you will be sitting at a computer during your entire shift, moving containers throughout the ship yard, also stated that you will be working a 12-hour shift (7pm - 7am), which was not listed in the job description. Immediately when I was told the work hours, I knew that it would not be a good fit for me, since I have a family. I wish GA Ports would include the schedule and hours of their positions; this would save time and weed out those candidates that have conflicts with the schedule and hours of the position. Most employers now include this now within their job opportunities. I would have never applied if I would have known this in advance.
