Creative learning experience - sudden ending
Display Intern (Former Employee) – Short Hills, NJ – January 9, 2019
Being a display intern for Anthropologie was quick-paced and heavy on deadlines. It was sometimes repetitive (painting dowels for a week, folding paper for two weeks, etc.) but overall a very enjoyable experience that taught me a lot about installation and allowed me to help in the creation of some beautiful displays. Management was a toss-up, as the display coordinator I worked under was absolutely lovely, but the store manager often had an attitude. That being said, the sales associates were always friendly and the environment was pretty upbeat. The only major qualm I have is that my internship ended very suddenly when I came in to work one morning. They had hit their budget on the allotted amount of money for my pay and told me that it would be my last day. Apparently I'm not the first intern to experience this, and it's a little disconcerting. Nonetheless, my experience was mostly good and I'd recommend this internship as long as you're willing to work hard, get dirty, and aren't afraid of heights!
