“I felt extremely valued. I was treated like a part of the team and no one thought any differently of me because I was a student. I was treated the same way as people whom had worked at the company for over 20 years and that helped me settle into the new working environment. I was also given high priority tasks to complete for customers so that also made me feel valued and trusted.…” - Read full review
