LID Landscapes & James Martin Associates, Inc.

HR Intern

May - July 2021 • Mundelein, IL

What I liked

My manager was very kind and a great person to talk to.

What I wish was different

As it was an unpaid internship, I was hoping to have the opportunity to learn, sit in on interviews, etc. instead, I sorted papers 6 hours per day and did not get the HR experience I was looking for. I was very disappointed. They do not use their HR or Marketing interns as potential new recruits or students to the company, but rather as free labor. Moreover, the owner of the company was very disrespectful to my manager and broke many HR laws while interviewing candidates. Employees did not like to work at this company.

Human Resources Intern

January - March 2020 • Mundelein, IL

What I liked

I had an extremely enjoyable experience working at JMA. I was given a wide variety of projects related to HR, Marketing, and Finance. I even had the opportunity to attend a career fair on behalf of JMA, which was an amazing learning experience. Because the internship was educational in nature, my supervisors truly valued my learning and wanted me to grow within the field of HR.

What I wish was different

I would not change anything about my experience.
