Enterprise Holdings

Software Engineer Intern

May - July 2019 • St. Louis, MO

What I liked

I loved getting to work with a small team of interns and employees on a dedicated project. I felt our project, an internal web application for the Risk Management division, was a cohesive product with a driven purpose and a tangible end result.

What I wish was different

Due to lack of space I was not able to work in a space close to my team, which resulted in lots of chatting over Skype. We managed to get a lot done with this method of communication, but being able to work together in person could have probably made some tasks go much quicker.

Advice

I would tell other interns not to be afraid to ask for help! Everyone I worked with is super kind and willing to help with any question, no matter how trivial you might think it is.

Good pay, fun team

What I wish was different

Very long work weeks, mostly just sales position

If you’re interested in sales this might be for you, but it doesn’t have a ton of opportunity for learing about the back end side of things.

Management Intern

May - August 2018 • Phoenix, AZ

What I liked

I liked my work environment the most. I had a great team at my branch in phoenix who were super upbeat and supportive while I worked there.

What I wish was different

I wish I didn’t have to be outside as much wearing all black while selling to customers. Also washjng cars and getting my nice business clothes wet and dirty, especially my shoes was annoying. Some customers were quite rude and treated me like some kid and not a professional.

Advice

It was worth it overall. So don’t get discouraged by the washing cars sometimes and customers attitudes towards you. I learned a ton about business in general and had good training in sales techniques and some management metrics for performance.

Sales Management Intern

June - August 2018 • Glen Ellyn, IL

What I liked

I liked the way that, as interns, we were immersed into the business and were treated like full-time employees in the branches in which we worked at.

What I wish was different

I wish the daily tasks were slightly more diversified , and we had the ability to experience different aspects of the company. The other downside came, in part, due to the fact that we were treated like full-timers. The others employees I worked alongside, undermined myself as a worker and/or took advantage of my time and work as an intern. This would have been okay, except for the fact that we were told we would be treated as full-time employees.

Advice

It was a good business and management experience, however, it seemed to me that it was fairly limited in the ways that different principles of business could be learned and addressed.

Management Trainee Intern

May - August 2018 • Frisco, TX

What I liked

The management trainee program helps students gain real-world experience. Interns learn how to improve their communication and customer service skills. The internship is very fast-paced and there is so much that one can gain from this experience. I also enjoyed the cool events hosted for interns.

What I wish was different

I wish that I did not have to take a test at the end of my internship, it was very challenging and I did not receive the preparation that I needed for it.

Advice

As an intern you will face various challenges, do not let that discourage you. Just be ready to work hard and try your best.

intern

May - August 2018 • Dallas, TX

What I liked

I got to train and mentor a new Manager-in-Training and two Assistant Managers . During this internship I mastered superior sales techniques and customer service skills. It was a great internship to network and see a whole different side of what providing a service is all about.

What I wish was different

During this internship the managers were not as professional as I would have liked them to be. They also had a lot of internal problems and that affected the business significantly. The pay was fair and the training was great but the company needs more micromanaging with their interns. Many times a lot of employees did not have any idea of what they were suppose to do with the interns.

Advice

Great internship to start with, but I would not recommend if you are not into sales or customer service. The Human Resources folks will try to tell you that you will learn different accounting and finance skills that will help you. However, during my whole internship we did not do anything other than customer service and selling insurance.

Management Intern

May - August 2018 • Richmond, VA

What I liked

Learned a lot - very supportive team and great training in customer service and sales.

What I wish was different

Less hours (I had another job and a summer class to manage alongside the internship). And because I was placed at a smaller branch I felt like I had to do a lot more to help manage the store than other interns that were in bigger branches with more staff. I would’ve preferred to focus more on my sales and learning about the business than having to be sent out to wash a car or pick up a customer. Also having an intern contest was a bit much, especially when my manager was (rightfully) worried about running the branch, and not much on the contest for me.

Advice

I would say do it, good experience, but be ready to work long and very productive hours.

Sales Management Trainee

May - August 2018 • Raleigh, NC

What I liked

The fact that you were able to see how much your work, as an individual, helped the team. As well as the fact that hardwork is recognized and rewarded.

What I wish was different

I can't think of anything, I had a wonderful experience.

Advice

Don't be afraid to dive right in. It might seem overwhelming at first, but the sooner you start being hands on, the easier time you will have learning it. Plus, ypu can always ask questions. They expect and encourage it.

Marketing Intern

June - September 2018 • Puyallup, WA

What I liked

I loved the experience that this opportunity gave me in the real business world. I had multiple opportunities to manage a team, work on public speaking and public relations and put my marketing and business skills to use. The team I worked with also made the experience enjoyable.

What I wish was different

I only wish there had been more time to focus on certain business aspects, but overall there was good mix of everything.

Advice

This internship takes a lot of hard work and dedication. It was not easy but, as a result, was so rewarding.

May 2018 • Frankfort, KY

Management Trainee Intern

June 2017 • San Luis Obispo, CA

What I liked

The hands-on experience in sales and the support I received from my managers helping to develop me for management roles in the future.

What I wish was different

There were a couple days before training where we were required to be in the branch, and we had no idea what we were doing yet so we felt like we were in the way all day.

Advice

Get ready to hit the ground running. Ask for help all of the time and you’ll constantly improve.
