Management and Sales Intern

May 2019 • Greensboro, NC

What I liked

I love the environment at Advance Auto. No matter what came up with Covid-19, they made sure to give me an amazing internship. They are such an accepting company that wants the best for their employees.

What I wish was different

I wish I could've been able to work on site over the summer rather than virtually but I am fortunate enough to be doing that now! Advance never gave up on me when COVID-19 broke out. They didn't cancel their internship, only adapted to change.

Advice

Go to the career fairs! You never know what opportunities you'll gain from them.

Sales Associate

May 2018 • Ravenna, OH

What I liked

Learning new things everyday, dealing with difficult customers, getting work experience

What I wish was different

My manager was not always the most timely or efficient but he was replaced, sometimes felt like I was on my own to learn a lot because of how understaffed and busy it would be at times.

Advice

Stick it out. Difficult jobs are sometimes the most rewarding, and don't give up just because things get hard. Working in a low-income area can be an eye opening experience as well, to see just how rough things are right up the street from you is almost a revelation.
