Yeah one time I treated an intern with respect and didn't make them the joke of the office..

likeupliftingfunny

I had an intern that was oddly affectionate. Unique situation because me (staff) and the senior are both gay. The intern would do stuff all the time like hug me when I taught him how to make a pivot table. I told him (even though he said he had been told before) that hugging your co-workers in the workplace or at a client is pretty much never appropriate. One time the senior was on the phone and the intern comes over to me, pokes me on the hip and whispers "you make me wanna wear green pants." I was like 😳. He also kept saying how we needed to hang out after his internship was over and we should go to the gym and hit the clubs together and stuff. He was well meaning but the level to which he wanted to bond creeped me out.

Insulting interns is bullying and should be banned. Let's keep Fishbowl classy and only talk shit about managers and above.

Stupid, but also hilarious was 2 senior managers and a partner arguing about why a printer/copier wasn't working. Big stress fight. Maybe 5 minutes later, an intern comes by, sees it isn't working and notices that the power strip is turned off. Turns on power strip. Hilarious.

I mean, people can do really funny things unintentionally when they are new/interns where they are not the butt of the joke -- sometimes they are the sharp pointy end. My fav stories are when the interns inadvertently destroy a senior manager or partner just by some simple act. Like, one time during an audit, the partner was going off and started yelling at everyone about why there was no coffee and why everyone was late and the interns looked up and we're like, I think your meeting is across the hall. It was. There was coffee. He was late.

No joke Assurance associate 1. A funny intern story doesn't mean that we want you to tell about how you made fun of someone. Its the end of busy seasons and we just want to read something funny. You guys are wieners.

@PWC2, no. Did u try a Google before you tested your wit on this thread. Go ahead, do a Google, even a bing if you fancy. No, my budding butt of all jokes. It is the butt, because it is the target of all the jokes, the "ass" the behind, the caboose. Not the bud, wherefore all wit springs forth from the blooming bud. You are a poet, but wrong. Alas.

To the people saying it’s ok to make jokes at the expense of an intern, y’all are part of the problem. Maybe once in a while it’s ok to be the butt of all jokes, but making someone the butt of all jokes because they’re an intern is not ok. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

I also feel like a lot of people who were interns and now made it to managers, forget what's it's like to be an intern.... which is why they treat their subordinates like trash. Huge problem in PA

For those who did the One Clubs “Mentor and Creative” program, do we put it as an internship with whatever agency or company that hosted us. So, for instance, if you were mentored by some Google CDs for 6 weeks to create an ad campaign that you pitched and might get produce, would you put in your resume or LinkedIn “Google internship.” Does it qualify as an internship cause I’ve seen multiple students put it as an internship.

I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.
