Uline

Sales intern

June - August 2020 • Cranberry Township, PA

What I liked

I was pushed outside of my comfort zone and built confidence as a professional and salesperson. We received real life experience by actually interacting with customers on a daily basis.

What I wish was different

There are typically events where you get to meet the interns from other branches, but due to Covid these were canceled.

Advice

Don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone because you'll be shocked what you are capable of.

Print Design Intern

May - August 2019 • Pleasant Prairie, WI

What I liked

I loved that this internship was very hands on. I was not fetching coffee, I was actually doing real work alongside full-time employees. And the company is really great about making sure you get the most out of the internship. Each week, they held "Lunch and Learns" so we could learn about other departments, as well as social and networking events to meet the other interns and just enjoy your time there.

What I wish was different

I wouldn't change a thing!

Advice

Uline is a business-professional company, so be sure to dress your best for your interview! And just make the most out of your three months with them. It goes by so quickly!

IT Infrastructure Intern

May - August 2019 • Kenosha, WI

What I liked

Coworkers, atmosphere, culture, large company corporate setting, managers are good mentors, networking opportunities with other branches in the company. You were given freedom to work a lot on your own which I was able to use and improve my IT skills. You were essentially another worker in IT.

What I wish was different

Advice

Always take initiative and ask the people around you about things they are working on. It shows that you are interested in learning more about the job and company. Don't be afraid to ask questions when you aren't sure about something.

Sales Account Representative

May - August 2018 • Cranberry Township, PA

What I liked

What I wish was different

Advice

I recommend finding an employer similar to mine and my experiences. Due to their interactive, hands-on internship, I was able to perform over 200+ sales calls, including cold calls, ride alongs with my bosses, and account calls. This allowed me to gain experience and knowledge that I never would've learned in just the classroom.
