2016 Interns - First Meeting / by Lewis Butler

By Mark Englert

Summer is well under way and the new intern team is excited to jump in and get involved with the inner workings of First Mate Yacht Care!  We just had our first meeting with Lewis and Emma, and discussed our plans for the summer.  Lewis gave us an understanding of what he expects from the intern team and we were able to cast a vision for what this experience will look like going forward and set goals for the internship.

Our discussion centered around the hiring process as we examined how Zappos and Walmart select employees. We learned why FMYC asks certain questions when considering a future employee and what kind of answers to look for, even with seemingly simple questions like “do you have any hobbies?”  It was really interesting and informative to see the other side of the interview questions that seem so ordinary.

Next, Lewis challenged us with some ventures that he would like to see tackled this summer.  The intern team is eager to dive into these projects and keep you updated along the way!
