I perfecly enjoyed my internship. It was very interesting and usefull for me. I learned all the basis of finance while assisting different people. The office in Windsor is really nice, the people working there and the place too. I highly recommend anyone to apply to do his or her internship in the Groupe SEB UK.
My colleagues made me feel comfortable right from the beginning. I was introduced to every one of my colleagues for my first day at work. They gave me a warm welcome and were also very supportive for the whole time I stayed in the company.
My manager and supervisor gave me a really good support and guidance during my internship. He was always willing to help me understand my tasks and making sure I was enjoying my internship.
The amount of work I was doing each day was well balanced even though it could vary a bit depending on the day. I was given slowly more and more tasks during the first month of my internship, as I was getting to know the job. During the summer holydays period the activity of the company was quite calm so there was less work to do which aloud me to work on different topic.
This internship was the first one I was doing and was lasting only 10 weeks so the responsability I was given were obviously not to important. However I had some responsabilities and an autonomy in my every day work which I really liked.
I learned and developed a lot of different skills during my internship. The fact that I learned how to use 3 managing softwares: SAP, GPS and Qlickview is a significative advantage for my futur jobs. I gain a usefull experience as well as self confidence which will help me in my degree.
The atmosphere was pleasent during work time and lunch time. There is a nice terrace with a table and a big kitchen to have lunch in which help socialising with your colleagues.
The company have 2 new interns each year so there are used to organising internships. The internship procedure is set up and is working very well. All the staff is informed of the arrival of an intern before he arrives so that they can prepare everything.
The company invest a lot of time on training new intern even if they do not stay for a long time.
Staff Sales/Staff Shop
The future employment prospect are very appealing, they are likely to offer you a job later if your meet or exceed expectations. The career proposition are attractive.
There is a good social scene amongst students and young worker. They organise regular event during the week or week end.
The cost of life is quite high in Windsor but socialising was relatively easy as people are kind.
As I was not leaving in my working area I am not an expert in Nightlife in Windsor. But there is some busy pub in the area at night.
There was some activities organised by the company to collect money for charities. They sometimes propose staff football matches. A summer party and Christmas party take place every year with music, drinks and food. It is 2 important events of the year for the staff, I enjoyed the summer party a lot.
