We:30 Share & Tell: Intern Edition
Every Wednesday at 3:30 we get together to celebrate an employee who exemplifies our core values to inspire, share, evolve, exceed and be 100% jerk-free. Our Share and Tell edition invites an employee to share something that inspires them and has a unique story. This week is a special intern edition of our We:30 Share & Tell!
The Summer Intern Season is coming to a close, and before the interns scatter to the wind, we wanted to have a We:30 focused on them and their time at Red Door. Each of them filled out a questionnaire to share their thoughts on the Red Door experience and reveal a little more about themselves. We’re amazed by the incredible talent our interns possess and we’re excited for what the future holds for each of them.
