    Greatest Internship for the Summer!

    I have been working at 212 Inc. as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Pros, this summer time internship gave me tons of experience to take with me, to any position I may have in the future! I learned the art of communication while really pushing myself to step out of my comfort zone. The training was so thorough and hands on! Management was completely cool with my schedule this summer, and really made me feel like part of the team, rather than a temporary intern. I can't wait to return to 212 after finishing my degree this year!!

    Cons

    If you don't like to work hard and play hard, this isn't the place for you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing! The support of the managers is unbelievable, I wish everyone could experience your positive attitudes!!

    I worked at 212 Inc. full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I know that sounds crazy, but honestly the fundamentals of what I learned while a entry level manager at 212, are exactly what I needed. What they call their 4's, 5's and 8's, I apply in my life, on a daily basis.
    I Love the fun working atmosphere, the nights at Dave and Busters, and all the cool people I have met with, and of course hanging with the boss is pretty cool.

    Cons

    The only con I can think of is, that you have to be self motivated to be successful!! If you are a couch potato, don't even bother... no lazies needed!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better music in the lobby!!

    Pros

    front desk workers are talkative and peppy
    base plus commission, but not enough to live on

    Cons

    prey on entry level college grads to get them into a sales position. this is not a marketing only position. it is sales for Verizon Fios. they pride themselves on not cold calling, but that is because they get their leads from Verizon and you have to go door to door. only paid for some of your gas IF you make a sale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop fabricating a sales job as a marketing only position to entry level graduates

    I worked at 212 Inc. full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Overall I had alot of fun at this job, and began to learn alot. The hardest part of my day was making sure I got to work on time and the rest was taking care of. I enjoyed the fact that everyday was not repetitive and it was always someone or somewhere else new. The co-workers here love to hang out and have office nights which made it the best social environment I have ran into at a job before.

    Cons

    Had to move to take care of my ill Grandmother and was not able to continue with the business even though I was advancing tup in the business quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer more people this opportunity and show more people how they can work towards a bigger opportunity for themselves
