Logistics Specialist Intern

August 2017 • Denton, TX

What I liked

Helping the survivors of Hurricane Harvey get their lives back to normal as soon as possible.

What I wish was different

I wish that not so many of the actual real employees did not have to deploy to Hurricane Harvey so that I could pick their brains, but I do know that the survivors needed them much more than I and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Advice

Ask questions about everything that you want to know. Take advantage of all the knowledge everyone there has. They are all willing to share it.
