I was a paid intern at PRG and in the end working at the warehouse just was not what I was looking for in a career. That being said, I bare them no ill will personally, and my low ratings for pay and compensation are because of what I learned from conversations with my coworkers there. In short, temps should expect to stay temps for 3 years before they become official employees and in that time they should not expect pay raises or benefits. I also hear the pay raises after that are less than ideal, but you could also argue that is the story everywhere. What I did notice was the lack of communication between the front of the house employees and the warehouse employees, as the warehouse manager never really took into account the warehouse employees side of the story nor communicate that side to the front of the house employees and would just reiterate the same things the front of the house employees told him. It got to the point that I would rather have skipped the morning meetings and head to the warehouse early to get to work if I could have.
Nice breakroom with a free coffee machine, generous lunch breaks
low starting pay, communication between management and employees is lacking
