Westlake ACE Hardware

Human Resources Intern

June - August 2020 • Lenexa, KS

What I liked

There was a lot to do and I was doing hands-on work that affected the business. I processed a lot of paperwork and assisted with a couple of store acquisitions. They were happy to hear my interests and let me sit in on some interviews due to my interest in recruiting.

What I wish was different

It was a lot of data entry, which needs to be done but can feel monotonous.


Ask for what you want and take on more responsibility if you feel capable! They let me in on their recruiting efforts and I got to sit in on a few COVID case calls. When there was a lull, I asked if there was anything I could do, and in HR, there always is! They trusted me to work as they would a full-time employee and it gave me a lot of great experience.
