    The Role

  • 1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
  • Working in the Continuous Improvement department was every enjoyable. I enjoy learning new things and doing new things every day. Every week I was working on a new projects. Every week I would be working with a different department. It was very insightful because I get to learn how all areas of a business operates, as well as learning what I might enjoy as a career.

  • 2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
  • The Culture at Church and Dwight was very friendly with ease of communication. I always had time to talk and exchange ideas with any employee or department when needed to. I could walk into a directors office and they would give me their time. After completing a few projects, departments would call my manager to come to them and run a project with their team.

    5/5

  • 3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
  • Not to much to say here. I was given lots of support and guidance when I first started. I always got support and advice from all my managers when I requested. Following my response from above, my boss was the European Director, but he would always answer the phone or email within the hour.
