Sortation Associate

July - August 2019 • Crest Hill, IL

What I liked

The pay was good, and it was a good workout. I lost weight and built muscle from all of the lifting and moving around the warehouse that I did.

What I wish was different

I wish we would have gotten longer breaks. We were on our feet for 5 hours straight, and if you worked doubles, you were on your feet for 10 hours straight. We only got one fifteen minute break per shift, which included time walking to the break room to sit down.

Advice

Making friends makes the time go by faster.

Inbound Area Manager

May - July 2019 • Murfreesboro, TN

What I liked

Constantly challenging in a good way. Everyday brought a different challenge that required teamwork between managers to overcome and find a solution. I was actively involved with the day-to-day operations and lead an area in the inbound department with around 80 associates. I learned more in these 10 weeks than any class could teach me. Also, this experience gave me real world examples for concepts learned in my supply chain classes. I highly recommend this internship to anybody in a business/engineering major.

What I wish was different

I wish the internship duration was longer and got more than one project.

Advice

You will have a lot of information thrown at you in such a short amount of time. Be prepared for that but don't feel overwhelmed. Try to become an expert in your individual department but still try to learn the other departments in either inbound or outbound. This will help with your project and being able to speak on it will look good on you from higher management.

Newspaper Delivery Driver

April 2020 • Elizabeth, NJ

What I liked

Working on my own. Paid for full 10 hour day even if I finish early.

What I wish was different

The amount of time we have to load the van in the morning. The rabbit (the phone they give us to make deliveries on) needs to go back to the original charger port where I can plug the charger in. The magnetic port keeps disconnecting from the charger.

Advice

Have the camera ready before you get out the van. If its one package, scan it on the way to the address to move faster. Move steady, walk fast, put the oversize boxes in order so that you can get to them quicker. Use any trick you can to keep the job and move at a quicker pace to get home sooner and have a good day!
