A fun time!

As an International Business student, YourSurprise immediately caught my attention. When I entered the Campus, I thought 'Wow, what a place!'. My internship was fun, sociable and educational.
There is always a nice atmosphere and a lot of freedom. I also got enough time to work on my internship projects. I was part of Team Customer Service, but I also got to do many of my assignments in the B2B department. This way I could expand my knowledge further.
Then again, what made my experience with YSP so special is the weekend away. They organize this every year to create an even better bond between colleagues. This was great fun!
I was excited to start! I received good guidance and learned interesting things from my buddy. I got to work with a lot of nice people, especially during the busier period around Christmas which was a lot of fun. I also had to do a project that YourSurprise hopefully benefited from. What made my internship special? During the busy period, we were all in it together. Everyone collaborates to make the customer happy. It feels great when we succeed in achieving that.
I would definitely recommend an internship at YourSurprise, because you have a lot of different teams which you can learn various things from.
This is the best internship I have ever had, the E-Commerce team is fantastic! Everyone I have met is a hard worker, focused on results and innovation, but they are also super nice.
I would definitely recommend an internship at YourSurprise because there are so many nice/creative people with a mountain of knowledge who are happy to share it with you to help you become an even better version of yourself!
Production & Expedition and Planning
From day one, the collaborative and diverse environment fueled my professional growth and a thriving community of passionate colleagues. Engaging in hands-on experiences, I applied classroom knowledge to real-world scenarios, gaining confidence in my abilities.
The supportive production team acted as mentors, guiding me through my daily challenges and celebrating successes.
YourSurprise wasn't just a workplace; it was a second family that contributed to my personal and professional development, leaving me grateful for the unforgettable experience.
YourSurprise seemed like a really cool company. At the time there was no vacancy for my internship within Team People, but that didn't hold me back. I applied and a couple of weeks later I was the first ever intern at Team People!
It was a busy yet rewarding period with great teamwork and unforgettable memories. After my internship, I enjoyed working at team People for another year until my graduation internship elsewhere.
When I was looking for an internship, YourSurprise was everywhere. At the IT Conference, the internship markets, etc. I decided to contact them to get more information. They were super fast with responding and invited me for a conversation right away.
The internship itself was great. The IT team were all super nice and helped me along the way. What made it extra special is that the interns were also invited to the Weekend Away that YourSurprise organizes every year, which was so much fun.
YourSurprise doesn't only focus on end results, but also on the learning process as well. They give you plenty of space to figure things out and take your time if you need it, which makes it an excellent place to learn.
My experience was a perfect blend of learning and enjoyment. Collaborating alongside such exceptional individuals not only enriched my professional experience but also nurtured my personal growth. Their support and encouragement had a profound impact on my career development and I'm truly grateful to each and every one of them for making this internship experience so rewarding.
The whole atmosphere within the company is something I have never experienced before. The atmosphere and how everyone treats each other is something very special. All the fun outings and activities outside work ensure that it remains fun and was a truly unique experience.
I definitely recommend it! It’s a fine interaction between learning things and having fun. You also learn a lot on a personal level and gain a lot of experience working for this company. I am very grateful to have had this experience. I really look back on a fantastic internship where I learned a lot and met a lot of new people.
It was a super nice experience! I chose YourSurprise because I really like the idea of working in an international environment with low hierarchies. Being an international student myself, this definitely was the right fit. I worked with fantastic people, they’re always happy to help. You can be sure that you will be given proper tasks to work on and learn from and there are a lot of opportunities to gain experience. In the busy Christmas period I also gained some insights in Customer Service as I helped out here as well. I was very happy with my internship and I’m even happier that I am able to stay in the company as a working student.
My experience during this internship was very positive, my coworkers were friendly and helpful and by just making sure I had a pro-active mindset, the pace of this internship was great! For me, working with all the different tools and available data was an extremely interesting and educational experience, and the company allows you to focus on learning as much as you can during your time as an intern. If you're looking for a fun atmosphere where you can learn as much as possible while working towards an end result that is appreciated by the company, I'd definitely recommend YourSurprise.
It was awesome! Especially in the B2B department, where I felt a strong bond with all my colleagues. We didn't only work together but also had a lot of fun after work. The best part was that I could ask them anything and they were always ready to help me out.
Right now I am working part time at Team Finance! A big change from E-Commerce, but I really enjoy doing this next to my other side job.
YourSurprise has a fantastic working atmosphere. They offered great guidance and gave me the freedom to develop myself in my own way. The best past? They rewarded my efforts with a job offer at Team Finance.
During my internship I had an amazing time. I learned so many new things, made many jokes with my team and got to know some people from production during the busy Christmas period. What made my internship special is definitely the Weekend Away. Doing your internship within YourSurprise is definitely worth the experience! You get to know a lot of great people, who are motivated to come to work and are knowledgeable in their field. I'm so happy that I'm still able to work here during my study.
I chose to intern at YourSurprise as the company is offering an international environment. Colleagues from all around Europe (and sometimes the globe) are joining which leads to great discovery. It is also a young and dynamic team. Besides that, I find the idea of spreading a little happiness around is a nice idea I wanted to participate in.
What made my experience special? I was given a lot of freedom and responsibility. This allowed me to learn a lot about People related subjects but also about myself. I was also able to work with different colleagues a lot and I found that very educational and fun. I would definitely recommend doing an internship at YourSurprise.
