    Pros

    The people that you work with are all awesome.

    Cons

    The pay was not that great. It all depended on what territory you received. The training in North Carolina seems like it will be really fun, yet it is grueling boring and the script they make to learn is hardly used when you’re out in the field. This job was really hard and I would not recommend it unless you are superior at sales and you live in a college town where all the companies rely on kids to buy their products.

    Advice to Management

    Some how split of the good companies amoung sales reps so they all have the same chance to succed, once your in a rutt of not making money or selling, you usually stay there.

    Pros

    +Develop yourself professionally
    +Receive great sales training, and great sales experience
    +Basically this internship is great if you plan on pursing a career in sales. Just be prepared to literally sacrifice your entire summer and deal with an awful company (harder than it sounds, trust me)

    Cons

    - Volume Sales - UD would rather make 10 sketchy sales than 1 legit sale
    - Witnessed management lie to make a sale
    - Was lied to by management
    - UD lied to business in my market about distribution, causing most renewals to be unhappy
    - Only pay commission on a very small number of your sales, they don't cover your gas, in the end you make little to no money
    - Product is worthless, advertisements do not benefit local businesses. Company makes money by using interns to do the majority of the labor while keeping all profits at the top - Multi Level Marketing
    - Mobil App didn't even work half the time
    - Distribution has been messed up on my campus for years
    - UD home office is worthless, they are slow and unorganized and provided little to no help at all
    - Felt like I was ripping off the local businesses rather than selling them a legitimate product that will help them
    - sales training week is really good, BUT DON'T TAKE EVERYTHING THIS COMPANY SAYS TO HEART, I have had additional B2B sales experience with a much larger and more reputable company, and I now realize that UD has a lot of flaws in their sales approach and business model

    Advice to Management

    - Dont lie to interns
    - Follow through
    - Cut all the cheesy motivational tips and outrageous sales goals and get with reality

    Pros

    Fantastic training. Good leadership. Great experience

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    Fun training week in NC and you get to work in a team of interns throughout the summer. If you like sales, this will help you for future jobs

    Cons

    Be prepared to be outside all day on sales calls
    No office
    Getting customers to buy from you is almost impossible, depending on your territory
    Unrealistic sales goal, problems with previous clients making renewals a pain
    You get a stipend which comes down to less than 4 dollars an hour
