    I worked at NORMA Group as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved my co-workers, and the plant that I got to work in. I had a great time and I do think that they try and give their interns meaningful tasks that contribute to their learning experience as well as have a positive impact on the company.

    Cons

    I worked very long hours. If I worked 60 hours in a week, I had a light week. Also, when you work in automotive, the atmosphere is high-stress all the time.
