What I wish was different
Many of the intern events were in the middle of the day, this interrupted my ability to fulfil my responsibilities. I was tasked with conducting time studies, documenting the work methodology, and coming up with ideas to improve certain stages of the production line. The line runs 4am-2pm when on overtime (it was running overtime when I was there). I was not required to be there at 4am but chose to in order to do my job better and get more daylight in afternoons and Fridays off. Continuous data is far more valuable than piecemeal so having a 1pm meeting really threw a wrench in my plans. My boss contacted the intern program coordinator to excuse me from the events so I only had to go to the ones I was genuinely interested in attending, but it was a bummer there was such an opportunity cost.
