variety of duties makes it interesting
You get to experience different job duties throughout your employment. It may be challenging at first. But, you get to learn a lot in fields that you normally wouldn't do in the private sectors.

Hard worker Good work ethics Team Player
A typical day at work for me would be, arrive on the jobsite about 30 minutes early. Talk to supervisor and figure out what is on the schedule for today. Take inventory of supplies needed and tools required to complete the task in a professional timely manner. Proceed to accomplish all tasks that were appointed to me and team members. After job is completed ,double check work area for any mistakes or tools left behind. Last I would talk it over with the customer or supervisor and make sure job is completed and done to every ones liking. Then wrap up the day and get ready for the next days job.
Pros
Always learning something new .Overcoming new challenges.
Cons
Down time, Fixing mistakes

fine
I was an intern. it was fine. I wasn't asked to do very much. In fact, I wouldn't recommend interning there unless you know someone who works at the Leg prior to starting your session.
