    Pros

    Before we get into pros and cons - being a Franchise Manager isn't for everyone.

    Personally it was both the best and worst summer I've had but I would do it again in a heartbeat because of all the things I learned in this time. It was the hardest thing I have ever done and it is extremely rewarding to come out on top at the end. Plus - you meet some amazing people along the way :)

    Having said this, be prepared to dedicate 100% of your time to this (just like any other entrepreneur would). During my time at Scholars, I learned a LOT and I use it almost every day in my career (and also helped me secure a job right out of school)

    Client relations - starting with cold calling, you then create a a relationship with potential clients during the estimating process, following up, answering questions, selling, and how to handle issues and complaints properly (trust me, if you are good at this, you can turn any issue into a non-issue)
    Time Management/Organization - handling hiring, estimating, marketing, production and client relations all at the same time can be overwhelming and forces you to use every minute in your day efficiently. You HAVE to be organized and manage your time well in order to succeed

    You can tie your experiences from this to almost any career you may want to take!

    Cons

    Long hours - there is very little time for friends and family, so be prepared to lose your social life for one summer - be sure to have a good support network that can help you keep your spirits up when you get stressed

    Not for everyone - if you are not prepared to be pushed to your limits and work hard every day then this is not for you

    Advice to Management

    More support in the field - you have to be very persistent to get the support you need
