The intent is to provide interns with a sense of pride and accomplishment for being handled complex tasks without any training.
As for cost, we selected initial values based upon writing assignments and coding assignments from the hiring process and other adjustments made to the job description before posting it to the job boards.
Among other things, we’re looking at average per-intern exposure earn rates on a daily basis, and we’ll be making constant adjustments to ensure that interns have tasks that are impossible, legally damning, and of course mindlessly soul-sucking.
We appreciate the candid feedback, and the passion interns (without out any options) have put forth concerning the current job climate, our solutionist products, and across our industry full of fucking stupid ideas backed by dumb-fucking venture capitalists.
Our team will continue to make changes and monitor intern feedback and update everyone as soon and as often as we can.
