    I worked at Global Brands Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of fun events planned throughout the internship, the people in my department were very nice, I learned a lot about the fashion industry, the HR reps were super nice, and GBG is just a very cool place to work at

    Cons

    In my internship, a good amount of tasks consisted of packing up goods, making copies, sorting out fashion closest, or other mundane typical intern activities.
