Miss Murphy Spirits LLC

Spring 2016 

Position: Management Intern
Student: Economics Senior

My internship with Miss Murphy Spirits LLC had many different components to it. On a daily basis my schedule was usually pretty simple. Once I arrived at work I would check in with one of the owners and I would have a conversation with them over the past shift; did I complete all my assignments, the quality of work done, what we can improve on, and if I had any ideas for them.

After our discussion I usually began working on my assignment that I was working on at that time. These included researching locations for a new store location, developing an inventory list for a new store, writing out the specific shift task checklists, and assisting in the hiring process. These assignments usually lasted one to two weeks depending on how much work they required. Once I completed the assignments I would present them to the owners and they would critique me as well as give me critical evaluations of my work.

Once I had worked on my assignments I started to work around the store. The owners believed that for me to be a successful manager I had to understand what it was like to do the every day tasks that kept the store running. This included being responsible for receiving inventory orders upwards of $10,000. I would work with the other employees to put these orders away correctly and ensure our entire inventory was out on the store floor. During this time I assisted customers with questions and helped them get any information they needed to make a purchase. At the end of the day I would be responsible for counting the cash in the cash register, ensuring the store was clean, and prepare the store for the next day, and locking up the store.
