    Pros

    Awesome management and team/friends, get to meet business owners and make friends, get to be very independent. Learning a lot from rejections/meeting people.

    Cons

    Internship--so not a lot of pay. Sometimes negativity from people can discourage you since there are a lot of rejections. If you work really hard you'll get more out of it.

    I have been working at AroundCampus as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    The training was really fun. You get to meet other students/interns from different universities in the country. Obviously, they mostly hire good looking and social people. The managers really want you to succeed. You learn a lot about yourself in this position. Your determination will lead to make a sale. The CEO visited us in our location, nice guy.

    Cons

    The actual work was really hard especially at first. Cold calling takes a lot of guts, and could be really embarrassing. Half of my team quit within 3 weeks. Forget the training, you actually learn in the field.

    Pros

    Expenses paid sales training in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Great networking opportunities with career partners. All of the hard work pays off when it comes to looking for a career in sales.

    Cons

    It can sometimes be a pain to have to constantly bug the same businesses after they've said no 5 times. Paper advertising is the hardest type of sales, and it really takes a lot of motivation. My market was small and so was my territory which made it harder to sell.

    Pros

    Fantastic training. Good leadership. Great experience

    Cons

    It's too hot outside...
    low pay
    lots of miles put on car

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide better pay. The wear and tear your car will take is worth more than employees receive. Other than that, great internship.
