Marketing intern

June - August 2017 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I loved the work environment and innovaive culture the company had. Even as an intern, you still have large responsibilities and opportunities. They believe there is no hierarchy, but rather teams with leaders.

What I wish was different

I wish the process of getting hired was quicker. It took 6 weeks to get back to me about whether I got the internship or not, so I started late.

Advice

My advice would be to take advantage of any opportunity you have at your company. Odds are, you'll probably meet a lot of different kinds of people, so make connections and network as much as possible.

The autonomy . The culture was great, but it is not for everyone.

Mortgage Operations Summer Intern

May - September 2017 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

This was my 3rd summer at Quicken, so I love the culture. This internship particularly was great in that I grew on the phones calling agents all Summer, learning their mortgage platform, and learning about something I didn't know much about...insurance! At Quicken you also have the opportunity to get bonuses, volunteer, learn the professional world, and do things outside your internship in classes that you still get paid for! No matter the internship here, if you like a laid-back, but inclusive culture, Quicken is the best place for you.

What I wish was different

For me the 9-6 hours go too late for me, but really if you want the overtime they give to you. Also, other leaders are different and allow you to work through lunch and change up your hours. Really, it's only for a Summer, but it's not much to complain about.

Advice

Be enthusiastic and ready to try new things cause Quicken allows you to do more than push paper.

Leadership Development Intern

May - August 2016 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

Quicken Loans has a great culture and treats interns really well with multiple socials and cool events.

What I wish was different

The hourly wage was pretty low taking into consideration the drive to Downtown and the gas spent in doing so .

Advice

While I said earlier that I thought the culture was great, many other interns hate the culture as well. So go to firm presentations and be wary of the fake positivity and enthusiasm that recruiters use to really analyze if this place is where you want to be for several months/a full-time career.

Data Analyst Intern

December 2018 - August 2019 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

QL company culture is amazing. The intern events during the summer were a lot of fun and great neyworking opportunities. You can learn alot about how to work in interdependent teams.

What I wish was different

I wish there had been smaller intern opportunities during the winter/fall. The big ones in the summer are definitely fun, but with so many people there, it can be harder to get to know your coworkers if you're not an extrovert.

Advice

Be very open to doing work that doesn't align with your degree. Shadow as many folk as possible. Don't be afraid to make the ask for an extension or an opportunity on another team.

Purchase Communications Intern

May - August 2017 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I loved being able to attend all meetings with my leader and really get an inside look at what was going on. I loved that I was encouraged to speak up at any time with any ideas or input I may have. Quicken also did a great job of giving the interns a sense of community and planned lots of intern events which was great.

What I wish was different

I wish I had been able to work on more projects. I enjoyed the projects I was assigned but I feel like I could have done more.

Advice

Never hesitate to ask for something to do. Don't ever let yourself be bored, speak up.

Instructional Design Intern

May - August 2018 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

During my internship, I was pushed out of my comfort zone. I was able to network and gain experience in a variety of different facets of the company.

What I wish was different

Honestly, I would not have changed anything about my experience.

Advice

For future interns, make sure that you be your own advocate. Your experience is all that you make of it so make yourself useful. Volunteer yourself for jobs or projects you wouldn't normally do. Lead team bondings, help other team members, and shadow other team members in different business areas.

Mortgage Banking Sales Development Intern

May - August 2018 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I truly enjoyed everything about working at Quicken this summer. They have an amazing internship program where I was able to perform meaningful daily work that actually contributed to company revenue. I gained a unmeasurable amount of development of my professional and sales skills. I was able to network with high level professionals and learn from them. This internship has fully prepared me to start my career here. I truly enjoyed the amazing culture at Quicken and cannot wait to return.

What I wish was different

The internship at QL was so great that my only complaint is that I wish I had more time to do more here.

Advice

My advice would be to truly buy into the process and culture here. I tried for the first month of my internship to resist this but this is truly an amazing environment to be in that allows for major positive development both professionally and personally. Quicken Loans provides amazing training that I am so grateful for and is a place with amazing resources if you take advantage of them.

What I liked

Fun environment, they took us on tours of Detroit and different events

What I wish was different

I didn’t get a choice in what my internship focused on.

Strategy and Analytics Intern

April - September 2019 • Detroit, MI

What I liked

I gained very valuable experience working in an area that was directly related to my major and minor (Finance and Business Analytics). I also enjoyed working downtown Detroit where there are always things to do. The experience and overall environment at Quicken was amazing and led me to accepting a full time position that I work in currently.

What I wish was different

I wish I would have spent more time during my internship shadowing the different areas of business and learning more about the whole company rather than being so focused on my particular area. With a company as large as Quicken there are so many different areas to explore and it is important to branch out and see what business area might suit you best.

Advice

Definitely shadow as many different positions as possible and expand your network of contacts you can reach out to when you are eventually looking for a full time position. Also be sure to ask a lot of questions and take notes!

Advice

Being a team member at Quicken definitely provides a lot of new opportunities! You really get out what you put into it. Every opportunity is there waiting for you to take advantage of it!

What I liked

I loved being able to explore different areas of the company.

What I wish was different

I wish I had received a more detailed project, then again, I should've created one.
