1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?
The entire team made me feel welcome and everyone got on very well which made the job enjoyable.
2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?
My manager was very supportive and everything i did seemed to contribute to the department.
3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?
I could always approach my manager and she continually arranged meetings to discuss development.
4. How busy were you on a daily basis?
It really did depend on what the current situation was, but at times it was very quiet, but the best was done to try and encourage the creation of projects.
5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?
I looked after my own range of products - so a lot of responsibility!
6. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and training you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?
7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?
Being in an open-plan office with customer services meant there was always an atmosphere - sometimes overly so!
8. How well organised was the overall work placement or internship set up?
Everything had been thought of - all students were well integrated into the business.
9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?
I personally didn't partake in a lot of training; however, other students did and it is available.
10. What were the perks on your work placement?
Sports and Social Club
Staff Sales/Staff Shop
11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?
Within JC itself there are not a lot of oppurtunities, as it is a small office. However, having the experience of working for Johnson & Johnson would benefit you in applying to other parts of the company. The main oppurtunities are within the sales force; however, i had little to do with this area.
12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?
A large number of students are employed each year, which makes settling in very easy.
13. What was the cost of living and socialising in the area you worked in?
14. What was the Nightlife like in the area you worked?
Hmm... High Wycombe itself is what you make it ... if there is a large group of you it can be fun. You are close to other towns/cities for larger nights out.
15. Were there many opportunities to get involved in activities outside of work?
The Sports & Social Club continually had events running (for example theatre trips and fund raising events) so there was always something to look forward to. The best event being 3 peaks!
