Great group of intelligent people!
Fred Meyer/Operations Intern (Former Employee) – Portland, OR – April 26, 2016
As an in-store operations intern you learn all of the software, procedures, rules, regulations, jobs, ETC. Involved in running a store. Periodically you work at corporate going to meetings or public events. My main manager worked at headquarters. You are expected to be a self-starter with only a foundation that is given to you for which to build on. Store management was there to help and I could email my main manager anytime. In the end you have an open ended project which needs to culminate into something that has helped increase sales, customer service, etc. You are free to learn as much as you want if you only ask. The other interns are also great people and as long as you work it will be a lot of fun!
People are willing to let you shadow them, Public events with other interns, Make connections and friends, Learn as much as you want
Sometimes communication was hard being out in the field, Creating own intern project was stressful
