Greeter

August 2020 - May 2021 • Chesterfield Township, MI

What I liked

I really liked my boss who was great, the extra bonus money they offer employees, flexibility in how easy it is to get days off when you need for doctor's appointments and most of the other associates I worked with.

What I wish was different

I wish that this company could have had more of the staff they needed in quite a few of the areas within the store so that it would be less difficult for associates like me who had to rely on someone to help relieve me in the part of the store I worked in as a Greeter at one of the front entrances for breaks.

Advice

I can say that this job was an interesting experience. I really liked it for a while, but then decided it was time to look for other kinds of work when it wasn't turning out to be all that exciting anymore. This particular role was sort of getting really trying on me physically with how busy the store is and how much work it was to keep up with a certain part of it that involved cleaning the shopping carts which was a chore most times of the year every time I went and came back from one of two or more of the breaks that I was allowed.

Merchandising Intern

May - August 2020 • Grand Rapids, MI

What I liked

The company was very open, meaning interns could talk to whoever in the company they wanted to reach out to. I worked with two Buyers as my mentors, but was able to talk to everyone from health and beauty, product development, home, pets, you name it. The GVP's and even the CEO talked with us.

What I wish was different

I wish we had been in person, though understand that with the pandemic this was not possible. It was harder to currate relationships over zoom. In addition, the overall intern project needed to be a bit more detailed, but the lack of detail gave us creative freedom, and it turned out well.

Advice

Talk with everyone you can during an internship. Even if your role may not be exactly where you see yourself, talk to others and learn about all of the positions you can.

Merchandising Intern

June - August 2020 • Grand Rapids, MI

What I liked

Great co-workers, great atmosphere, loved the work I got to do!

What I wish was different

The whole thing was virtual, out of their control but it would've been nice to see the office in person.

Advice

Connect with everyone! Even if you don't need them for your project/work, it's cool to hear about what people do in the company and be able to rely on them for help after the internship.
