This intern has no intention of going into my profession. She will be attending college for another field. However, she signed up to intern in my industry. She would have to be trained and her answer to every question I asked was "about average". The owner and I disagree about hiring this particular intern she will have to be trained. I resent the fact that I will have to have someone waste their time training her when she will be here about 60 days. Am I being too harsh?

Any work experience looks good on a resume.

Yes and no. <br />
I'd 'play' along with the program because you can get branded as a misfit for your views. <br />

I had to 'train' summer help from time to time and I just gave them enough to keep them busy, out of my hair and productive. The worst thing you can do is to do a 1/2 arsed job...some bosses hate that.
