The Role

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

I did not enjoy this placement one bit. I was in a very unsupportive team who seemed to have a 'sink or swim' attitude. The job sounded fun, but all I was doing was pointless jobs like copying and pasting things in spreadsheets. I quit half way through the year. I would never recommend this placement in this particular department to anyone else.

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

Some days I had nothing to do, other days I was given so many tasks which I had not been properly briefed on so it made them impossible to complete to a good standard.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Very unwelcoming! No one really talked, and if they did it was only to say something bad about someone else or the work they had done.

1/10

8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?

So badly organised. After quitting I recommended they didn't bother hiring anyone else to fill the role as the team didn't seem to know what to do with a Placement student!

9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

Nothing, Any training they offered was not offered to Interns - e.g. fire safety, first aid, business/sales training etc. was offered to everyone in the building except interns.

10. What were the perks on your work placement?

  • Subsidised Canteen
  • Staff Sales/Staff Shop
  • Working from home

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

I have no intention of working for the company again, which is a shame as I am completely in love with Disney as an organisation, just not to work for!

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

There were 200 placement students in the building so quite a variety of people to mix with.

5/10

13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?

Pretty expensive as the placement is based in London.

2/10

14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?

Karaoke was fun...

15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?

Yoga once a week was all I heard about for extra activities.
