Any summer intern horror story?

Last summer a McKinsey MBA got fired mid summer. He was explaining something to a client and the client said "we get the point, move on" and he said "obviously not, since I've had to tell you five times already." Fired next day. My hero.




That McK is a fucking champ. Well done 👌🏻


But well deserved...


Not a consulting firm but a law firm. They hold a summer event at a museum in NY. Female of counsel (like a content area expert who didn't make partner) and intern (male) have sex in one of the bathrooms and breaks sink. Everybody knows about it because the firm has to pay for the sink. Nobody gets fired but I think the of counsel left the firm. Intern came back full time.


Last summer - experienced hire urinated on the bar....'nuff said


Damnnnnn, that's cold

So sad on so many levels!

Back in 2018, my boss took me to my first strip club against my will. It was my last day as an intern, so our team went out for drinks after work. We drank at a couple places. Afterwards, my boss had to drive me back to my car, which was at the first place we drank at. But while he had me in the moving car, he got the idea to drive to a strip club instead. I really didn’t want to go because I had finals, projects, and senior design. But it was cool, he gave me a few hundred to blow.
