    I worked at General Mills part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    An internship that's paid!
    Archive employees are great to work with
    Fascinating variety of artifacts to work with
    Excellent archival experience, especially if you are looking for work experience in archives, libraries, or information centers

    Cons

    Very small department, slim chance of getting a job specifically in the archives - the internship was excellent experience, but don't get your hopes up that they will have a plethora of full-time positions in the future.
