What is your typical day as an intern?

During the first week of my internship, I arrived at 8 am and followed a schedule that has been made for me by my supervisor. I am getting to know everyone in the department, and the heads of the other departments (sales, HR, Inventory Management/Buying, etc.).  I have also attended a few vendor meetings as well as a few turnover meetings.
