Growing From Within

"The trainee program was an excellent opportunity to kick off my career. In the first 12 weeks of my employment, I was introduced to employees from all across the organization- peers, management, executives.  We even got to have a q&a session with Bill Cunningham, the CEO.  Between building my network from the start and the in-depth training sessions, I feel like I was set up for success as soon as I stepped in the door."

"The time you spend as a Trainee is what you make of it, but you definitely won’t regret it. You get to network with coworkers and create bonds/friendships along the way. I feel like the Trainee Program helped me ease into my job and provided me with the opportunity to succeed in my career overall."
