HR Intern

June - August 2019 • Albany, NY

What I liked

I was able to learn a lot about the company and what role HR plays in it. The people I interacted with were all very friendly and always willing to help and teach me new things. They really accepted me in to the department like I was family and made me comfortable which I was very appreciative of. They also really tried to tailor the experience to be relevant to what my major is in order to help me get more out of the whole experience.

What I wish was different

It was the first year for Speedway to recruit HR Interns so the schedule was a little up in the air. You really had to go with the flow. I was fine with it, but it would have been nice to have a pretty set schedule at the beginning.

Advice

I would say that this doesn't apply to all of Speedway. The region that I was in provided me with this amazing experience. However, Speedway is a good company to work for and they always try to take care of their employees in the best way possible.

Sometimes saying yes to the overnight shifts wasn't the greatest idea.

Human Resources Intern

May 2019 • Warren, MI

What I liked

The ability to work first hand with an HR advisor and recruiting team. Everyone I worked with was great and welcomed me to the team with open arms. The autonomy that was given to me to make decisions and interview candidates. I enjoyed seeing the work I put in on reports and databases be used in meetings to explain overall company goals. I learned a lot because I was always doing something new each day which excited me.

What I wish was different

More time learning the business side of Speedway. I spent most of my time strictly within HR functions.

Advice

An internship experience in my field of study was more beneficial to my long term career growth than any single class was. Getting that real world experience is unmatched

HR Recruiting Intern

May - August 2019 • Clairton, PA

What I liked

I felt as though I was a real employee at this company. I was trained thoroughly, all of my questions were answered, and I felt as though I was respected and valued.

What I wish was different

I think that within the company itself, the recruiting staff had a difficult time finding enough applicants to recruit, which created a stressful environment for workers.

Advice

While this internship was not directly related to what I am studying (I am communications and the internship was HR) I still learned a lot about myself and what I want to do with my future. I think stepping outside of the box for this internship gave me a valuable experience and a new set of skills I would not have had otherwise.

Gas Station Attendant

February 2018 • Depew, NY

What I liked

Everything! The retail experience was very easy to adapt to and learn. Working across from the Buffalo Airport allowed me to meet people from all walks of life and learn cultures and nationalities from all around the globe which in turn diversified my world view. I was also a congratulated worker and very appreciated for my hard, determined work I put in every day and all day.

What I wish was different

I wish the company I was working for original (NOCO) was never bought out by Speedway. We were a local company and the job was extremely enjoyable and professional but after the change over everything became stressful for everyone working there and I lost a lot of good co workers due to it.

Advice

Take a job if the surroundings are intriguing. To me having a job isn’t necessarily about just the job but what you take in around that area. A job far from home allows you to experience a new part of town you may never have seen before.

Customer Care Representative

May - September 2019 • Brooklyn Center, MN

What I liked

I love my Co-workers. They’re one of the most important group of people in my life. They’re hardworking, respectful etc..always used to get work done on time! I love the vibe at speedway..my location was the best! I also love the fact that I could put smiles on most of the customer’s faces. It was such a great Experience.

What I wish was different

I wish I could’ve continue working there. So I got hired by Super America and when I was returning back this summer, I had to re-apply as a result, they started me off with $10.50 instead of my regular $11.75 rate when I was working for SA . Super America used to keep your spot and allow you to resume work whenever without re-applying but Speedway don’t so yeah that sucks. Secondly, I had to come back to School here at MNSU so I had to quit the job again.

Advice

To be honest, that was one of my best summers yet. Speedway is a great company. Safety is their number 1 priority. They ensure their staffs are happy and functioning well and many many more so apply at your nearest location now and you won’t regret it.

Human Resources Intern

May - July 2019 • Columbus, OH

What I liked

The employees in Speedway were amazing. They have a great team that makes you feel very welcome. I got to spend time with my boss traveling and completing employee satisfaction surveys. I was able to advance my Excel skills and learn more about Microsoft as a whole.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have been able to have more time with my boss and learn more about her role since her role is more focused on the human resources field than my internship role was.

Advice

Reach out to other recruiters and your boss to keep yourself busy and show initiative to those in the organization.

Corporate Operations Intern

June - August 2019 • Marlborough, MA

What I liked

Some of the greatest experiences of this internship were traveling and getting to see operations at different levels of the business. For example, I spent five weeks working with a General Manager in a store and then several weeks with a District Manager that oversaw multiple stores. Interns were sent to the Corporate Headquarters in Enon, Ohio at the beginning of the Internship for a Company Orientation and then once again at the end of the summer for a group presentation and wrap-up.

What I wish was different

Advice

Always be open to learning new things and asking questions for clarification. If your opinion on a subject matter is requested then give your honest, constructive feedback.
