What It’s Like to Work for GMS: The INTERNal Perspective

by Tim AustinJuly 23, 2015 8:00 AM

The road to getting an internship can be a rough one, especially if it is your first. If you were anything like me, you went to career fair after career fair, booth to booth, one person to the next, and before you knew it you were pretty overwhelmed by the entire process.

The original ten offers quickly dwindled as I ran them past my internship expectations - pay, experience, and environment. It was obvious after my GMS interviews with the Richfield Sales Manager, David Swift, and the VP of Sales, Tim Austin, that I had found the internship my classmates could only dream about.

Find out what it’s like to intern at GMS from our Summer 2015 Sales Intern Erin Seiler.
