2015 Interns Reporting for Duty

Category: HR News | Author:

2015 Interns BowlingAt Hayneedle we love seeing new faces and fresh ideas. This summer, seven interns joined the Hayneedle team and started making some big impacts right away! A few internships are wrapping up as the school year starts while others will continue through the fall. The interns spent the summer learning the functions that make an ecommerce shop run and contributing to major 2015 initiatives.

The summer wasn’t all work though; we managed to sneak in some fun as well! There were many breakfasts and lunches and even a day at the bowling alley, complete with pizza. The intern team also enjoyed a few extra special perks, like attending a lunch and learn series with each member of the Hayneedle senior leadership team.

One of the interns had this to say about the experience:

“I like the balance of freedom and guidance.  I have enough autonomy to work on things myself, yet am still able to get questions answered when I ask.  I could feel the importance of having a positive environment and supportive relationships the day I started.  I feel privileged to have met and had the opportunity to work closely with everyone here, including senior level employees.  I’m looking forward to continuing my internship and am confident Hayneedle will teach me some valuable skills and lessons.”
