WSI's Onboarding Process
"The internship description was exciting because it offered such a wide array of potential positions. I liked having the option to talk about all the positions and find the best fit for me."
"Hearing from the executives on the morning of orientation was wonderful and encouraging."
"My initial interview with Kara was a great experience because I could tell how much she loved the company culture and she really made me want to be a part of it."
"My coworkers were so friendly and helpful. One in particular really took on the reins of being my mentor when my manager had to leave the country for 3 weeks. She was incredibly helpful and sweet and really made me feel at home at Pottery Barn."
WSI's Onboarding Process
"We did not have enough work to do in the store to have worked the full two weeks. I wished we would have been assigned a project that encouraged us to learn exactly what we needed in the stores to use at corporate."
"I needed access to a certain server in order to do my work, and IT couldn't figure out how to grant me access until week 3. It would have been great if it was set up and working from the start!"
"I would have loved more information about what I would be doing at corporate exactly, whether it was from HR or my boss. It would have been nice to hear from them before the internship started."
"I really liked that I was given a mentor before the internship started, but it would have been more beneficial if they were from the department I am working in."
