Time Clock Plus

Spring 2016

Position: Operations Intern
Student: Economics Senior

My internship with Time Clock Plus was a pretty interesting learning experience, allowed me to participate on some great projects, and most importantly taught me about how incredible it is to work for a company that has a strong and unifying culture. Time Clock Plus is a time and attendance software company that provides payroll solutions to companies large and small. They have many divisions but I primarily worked with the operations management team under the supervision and guidance of the Chief Operating Officer. While my internship experience was incredible, I can only imagine how much better it will be for the next cohort of interns because they are currently in a state of transition with their Austin office and will be upgrading soon. 

My schedule was pretty flexible. It was mostly based around exposure to the daily tasks of my superiors which were pretty broad. I would be tasked with individual projects such as helping find commercial real estate for the office switch. The main focus with that individual project was focusing on the many intricacies of a new location, size, cost, location, neighbors, and even demographics of surrounding neighborhoods. 

I think the part of this internship that I would emphasize most is that you will most definitely get out more from this internship than what you give to them. It is a learning experience. That is because the leadership focuses on teaching you how they do business, how they operate as a team, and how they encompass a culture that cultivates the strength and inclusion of many rather than competition or one particular superstar individual. You will learn what it is like to learn from a company that is focused on what appear to be all the right things. The people are the happy, communication is clear, and everyone is consistently moving forward.
