1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
I couldn't have asked for a better placement, the work, the people and the culture helped to make this a once in a lifetime opportunity and an incredible experience that cemented my desire to work within the film industry as a career.
2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
Although you start slow as an intern by the time you leave if you are strong and work to a good standard you are never considered merely an intern but are valued as a true member of the team with the responsibility to go along with that involvement.
3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
Warner Bros. operate an excellent employee assessment and guidance program with constant meetings to make sure you are receiving the support and guidance you need to grow and improve.
4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
The work moves in cycles, sometimes you will be swamped and working very hard and other times you might find the work is easier to manage. Any extra hours are easily counter balanced by the excellent products you are bringing to market and the environment you are working in.
5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
As an intern you can't expect to be doing a directors work from the word go but WB will give responsibility where it is due and if you work hard and produce work to a strong standard you will be rewarded.
6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
I believe I learnt more spending 1 year with WB on an industrial placement then I did my three years at university and that is not to say that my university years were wasted merely that my placement taught me that much in such a short time!
7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
10. What were the perks on your work placement?
Staff Sales/Staff Shop
Above 25 days holiday
11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
Everyone I worked with both interns and more senior colleagues had a great social attitude and we would cosntantly meet outside/after work.
13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
Living in London has it's drawbacks financially, however this is more then made up for by the quality of what is avaiable to you and there are more financially viable things to do such as galleries etc when on a shorter budget!
14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
Charity days, film set/premiere visits were just a few of the opportunities available
