Interns participate in the Club performance review process, which includes meeting with the supervising manager to discuss performance during the training period and to identify areas to focus on for continued professional development.


  • The Club provides fully-furnished apartments to interns on a space-available basis, which they share with other interns. The apartments are located approximately seven miles from the Club. A weekly payroll deduction covers each intern’s use of the apartment.
