Office Intern

May - August 2019 • Culpeper, VA

What I liked

I loved the pay for starters. I also liked that I was able to work on a variety of tasks which expanded my knowledge and ability in the Microsoft Office Suite. My coworkers were really nice and welcoming so overall it was a great atmosphere.

What I wish was different

I did not have a set desk which was a little frustrating, but other than that it was pretty great.

Advice

I don't have any advice really. It was a good job that allowed me to get a feel of what a full-time office job would be like if I ever got one.

Cintas Intern

June - August 2019 • San Leandro, CA

What I liked

I loved working for Cintas. Their culture is definitely top tier. I'm a super positive person that likes to radiate my energy to and from other people. I was more than happy with everybody I worked with. I got close with so many managers and workers that they're like family to me now. I also got to help plan and organize an event that Cintas threw for all of the employees that work there and it turned out amazing, as well as fun to plan. I was commuting from Stockton to San Leandro Monday-Friday and let me just say that this company made that long drive worth it. They're invited me to go back for the MT program and have made it known to me that they definitely want me there after I graduate.

What I wish was different

I wish that I had worked more in the production aspect more, but they needed help from me converting from As400 to SAP so I did a good amount of office work, but because I got so close with all the managers, from the general manager to the hr manager to the sales managers, they all took me under their wing and gave me A LOT of advice. Which I loved. I just wish I got to experience the productivity side of the warehouse more than what I was assigned. I still learned a lot on the production side and was able to experience and do tasks, just not as much as I would have liked to.

Advice

A piece of advice I'd share about my this experience would be just to be yourself. Everybody is so helpful and willing to give give and give to anybody that needs help. So definitely don'y be afraid to ask questions and definitely don't be afraid to take initiative in a lead role and lead whatever task you're assigned.

Data Entry Intern

May - July 2019 • San Antonio, TX

What I liked

I was working with parts data entry for the maintenance department, which was great since I got to learn how many of the machines worked by learning what were all its parts for.

What I wish was different

I would have liked to interact and learn more with my boss, since most of the time I had to learn stuff on my own which was very inefficient and didn't let me achieve as much as I would have liked.

Advice

Sit down with your boss/supervisor and make perfect clear what you are expected to do. Don't try to fake already being an expert at what you are supposed to do, since it can easily lead to wasted time and effort doing things that weren't necessary or could have easily been fixed another way.

Intern

April 2019 • Reno, NV

What I liked

The culture at Cintas is great. It is one that promotes personal safety and success that will follow you into the workplace. Everyone that works there is willing to answer questions, assist in problem-solving and is open and friendly. The GM Brian is awesome, he is very clear about his expectations abut also understanding when it comes to deadlines and realistic expectations for projects.

What I wish was different

The only thing that I wish was different was more of a learning experience for the interns. Since there are so many facets to Cintas' business, it would have been great to learn a little bit more outside of the office work that interns are mostly responsible for.

Advice

One piece of advice is to be open to learning. Often I found myself getting frustrated with not understanding the computer system or messing up on tasks that I had been trained on, but it is all part of starting at a new company. 6 months later and I am confident in my abilities and I know I can use other office partners as resources office when I am not so sure of myself.

Marketing Intern

May - August 2019 • Cincinnati, OH

What I liked

I had the opportunity to explore many different aspects of marketing from data projects, email campaigns, and design projects.

What I wish was different

Nothing honestly. They gave me a lot of room to grow personally and professionally.

Advice

Go in with an open mind and be a sponge. You will be thrown in to unknown situations and that is where you will grow most.

Business intern

May - August 2019 • Nashville, TN

What I liked

I loved the buisness environment and the ability to learn different parts of business.

What I wish was different

I wish I could have rotated to smaller locations to see the difference between a large and small location.

Advice

I would stay to stick with it. The first few weeks might be rough adjusting to the schedules and long days but it’s worth it.

Sales Scholar

June - August 2019 • Pittsburg, CA

What I liked

A really big reason I had returned for a second summer was the people I worked with. The sales team always made sure I understood what I was doing and was always so appreciative of me. When I made phone calls they showed how proud of my progress they were. It was an experience I don’t think I would’ve been able to receive anywhere else.

What I wish was different

intern

May 2019 • Mason, OH

What I liked

The company culture. Everyone was so supportive and helpful. People actually took time to explain the business to me. Being given actual projects to work on which I got to present it to the president of the company.

What I wish was different

Wish more interns were there in this group. Since I was the only intern sometimes I had to keep asking the partners there for help . If I had another intern on the team we could have discussed it and help each other out.

Advice

Just be open minded and be humble. At first everything seems impossible but you will be surprised on how much you can do! Don’t underestimate yourself.

Operations Intern

May - August 2017 • Cleveland, OH

What I liked

The employees were friendly and willing to help.

What I wish was different

The entire summer. I was told I was being brought on to learn every step in the operations process and to help the production manager. Instead, I worked 5am-1pm M-F and filled in for the people that were on vacation. One of my co-workers went to the Philippines for an entire month so I was stuck hanging hangers 8 hours a day for a horrible hourly wage. I asked the upper management for more responsibility and they pretty much told me that I was stuck until she came back from vacation. This experience was awful and I couldn't enjoy my summer outside of work because I had to go to bed at 8pm to get a decent night sleep. Cintas is very conservative and traditional and only allows their employees two 15 minute breaks throughout the day.

Advice

Don't take a summer job/internship just because you think it'll boost your resume. The grass isn't always greener! I am a senior now and this internship isn't on my resume and is no way relevant to my future work aspirations. I would have rather enjoyed a great summer working part-time and hanging out with my friends!

Production intern

May - August 2018 • Romeoville, IL

What I liked

I liked working with the supervisors with whatever they needed. This gave me experience doing various different things depending on the day.

What I wish was different

I would have liked to learn more about the different processes rather than just stepping in to help where needed.

Advice

Try and ask more questions to learn about actual processes.
