    Pros

    Great culture, great support from management, base pay. The sales training was a very fun and rewarding experience. The managers know how to create a fun environment and motivate the interns.

    Cons

    The sales techniques that we were taught were very outdated. The product we were selling is old-fashioned and proven to be ineffective.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on product development. Revamp the sales training to instill a more modern set of sales skills within the interns. Get more feedback from the sales reps midway through the summer on how they feel about the sales process we were trained to go through.


  2. While some locations are more ideal than others, it overall is a solid program with great opportunity for launching.

    Pros

    The training includes an expense paid trip to UNC-Chapel Hill. The commission based program is not limited to your draw payments, and there is excellent flexibility as an intern.

    Cons

    Because the size of the company, some locations do not get as looked after eg SFA as others eg Baylor. Some commutes may be difficult eg. Austin College Station.

    Pros

    If you can figure out how to sell advertising you can sell anything. Here at ac we sell marketing. A non tangible product

    Cons

    Many of the markets are saturated with the product and AC hires new infers every year so basically when you get out there and start renewals you have no idea who you're getting involved with

    Advice to Management

    Lower pricing of products in saturated markets

    Pros

    The sales training required by AroundCampus is unlike anything I've ever experienced. They take the time to make sure you're prepared when you go into the field.

    Cons

    Solely commission based salary with a draw. On meant for the mentally tough individuals. If you don't take rejection well, this may not be the best place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe develop a program that helps people deal with failure. It's a hard internship, so we can use all the help we can get.
