Kate Arnold Wines

Business Analytics Intern

February - August 2021 • Athens, GA

What I liked

There was a lot to like about Kate Arnold Wines. I think that the flexibility of time and scheduling is noteworthy! With adjusting to COVID employment circumstances and taking a full 15 hours at the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business, my boss, Jean Arnold was entirely understanding and flexible with my schedule. I think another thing to note is the culture itself. The culture at Kate Arnold Wines is fantastic! I seriously think that this may be one of the best office staffs in Athens, GA. It feels very much so like a family. We solve complex problems together and we celebrate victories as a team!

What I wish was different

Because Kate Arnold is so young in it's business model, employees have to wear many hats and you have to meet the demands of pressing tasks, even if that field of work is not necessarily your area of expertise. This can be stressful; however, it does help to sharpen your tool set and make you a more dynamic employee. At first it was tough, but very soon I became a very dynamic employee able to assist in many different facets of the business.

Advice

A piece of advice that I would offer would be for people to come in with an open mind every day. This office needs individuals that are willing to work in multiple areas to satisfy the needs of the company. With that being said, be open minded everyday with what you may be working on. One day, you may be working on a project that requires you to perform tasks that are completely foreign to you. It can be intimidating, but just know that you will get better and you will grow in the things that you learn.

Advice

Just because his company is small does not mean it is poorly run---quite the opposite! Jean provides a great, welcoming, and organized work environment. He is always eager to find out how he can improve both your experience as an employee, and the company as a whole.
