Being an intern at Komean East TN was a very humbling experience. As an intern, I learned a lot of valuable lessons that will help me for years to come. For instance: hard work does pay off. I was always amazed at my co-workers' enthusiasm and motivation. Working at Komen was filled with highs and lows. When events are weeks or months away, we are hard at work preparing for them by gathering sponsors / donors and making sure that the necessary items / volunteers are gathered for the event set up. However, when events are over, we experience the odd sensation of relief and relaxation until the next event rolls around.
Overall, I may not recommend many to work for Komen, but it would do some good to volunteer for them at their events and see the positive change that they make first hand.
Very friendly staff; compensation pay for gas; lots of gift cards
Can be boring, no pay; very little staff
