ACCO Brands

New Product Development Intern

May - August 2019 • Kettering, OH

What I liked

I loved the company culture and the people I got to work with. I loved the company and the work I got to do there, and the things that I learned.

What I wish was different

I wish the company was closer to Cincinnati so I wouldn't have to commute so far.

Advice

Learn from the things people tell you. People who have been in the business for a long time know so much and if you have the opportunity, sit down with them and ask questions.

Assembler

May - August 2019 • Booneville, MS

What I liked

I like the pay and the hours that I worked. I also liked my team leads and my supervisors. All the people that were in charge were welcoming and friendly, and it was a really decent summer job.

What I wish was different

I wish that there had been more air conditioning, because the building that I worked in was quite humid and stuffy, most of the time.

Advice

It was a great learning experience, but it also reminded me that school was the best option for me. I would not survive working in a factory for the rest of my life, so this was a great way to be reassured that I needed to continue to pursue my college degree.

Order Picker

May - August 2019 • Alexandria, PA

What I liked

Wages we good and we got paid time and a half on Saturday’s and double on Sundays. There were also a lot of hours.

What I wish was different

I wish I had more days off. At one point we went 45 days straight without a day off.

Advice

Factory jobs are good for money and experience, but before going into one make sure you know that it could very well take up most of your summer

Advice

I would encourage people to get an internship while in college and try to make as many connections as you can.

Human Resources Intern

May - July 2018 • Sidney, NY

What I liked

The culture/ people were very supportive of my development and actively looked for special projects of interest to me. Incredibly supportive group even outside my working team.

What I wish was different

Some of the more mundane aspects of HR just aren't as flashy, but that's pretty universal.

Advice

Definitely focus on the experience, not necessarily name recognition or location. I had not heard of ACCO Brands before my summer internship, and it was one of the best experiences I could imagine utilizing my education and career interests.
