    Not What You Expect

    I worked at Chicago Twenty Something as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    You get to drink for free, other than that there aren't many pros. I will say though if an internship is required for your school or something and you really don't care about it, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    It's totally a pyramid scheme. They want as many interns as possible so you can bring out your friends so they can get paid more by the bars. You also have to go out every Friday night to the same two places. They make you come into the office at least one day a week and you will do nothing but sit on your computer for 6 hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider making the internship program an actual learning experience. I understand that you want to make money and that's the main reason for the whole company and the interns, but if that's all you want then be straight forward about what the internship really entails.

    I worked at Chicago Twenty Something as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    You are able to get deals and special access to Chicago's night life. They are a nice group of people who are fun and are flexible with schedules, which was nice. The only way to get paid as an intern was to try and get people to come out to different events that were being put on. Also very informal work apparel was the common trend.

    Cons

    Not much organization through out the experience. Would of liked to take on more responsibility. I found my self dazing at the computer for a long period of time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay better, and some kind of training would he helpful.

    Overworked Intern

    I have been working at Chicago Twenty Something

    Pros

    drink deals on weekends, fun culture in office, casual dress, nice employees

    Cons

    you basically make all of the money for them and only get commission. interns do the same work as full-time employees with a base salary. the internship is basically a scam. all you do is get your friends to come & have no involvement with actually planning the event

    Pros

    Unlimited earning potential, laid back environment & opportunity to grow your own business. Unlike other some other jobs, this company offers a base salary to show that they are confident you will do well, as well as the full commission on top of that.

    Cons

    You have to work some weekends, but even then you get to network and find new potential business.

    I have been working at Chicago Twenty Something full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Unbelievable earning potential, great corporate culture, laid back environment. This company gives you an opportunity to actually build up your own business and move up quickly...and unlike most companies that offer this they actually give you a salary as well. The salary, to me, means that they are investing in you.

    Cons

    Must work some weekends. Takes a few months to get the ball rolling and can be frustrating at first.

    Pros

    Nice employees, especially Freddy. Just not what I thought I was signing up for

    Cons

    If you are looking for a joke of an internship this is a good fit. The days are spent on facebook and being bored out of your mind. Then every weekend you have to go to an assigned bar downtown and try to convince all your friends to go.

    I worked at Chicago Twenty Something as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    it's kind of cool working with college kids who you are interning with but besides that there are no pros

    Cons

    The entire business is a pyramid scheme and I don;t understand how they haven't gotten in trouble for it yet. I first off thought I was going to be 1 of a couple interns for the summer like most other companies. It turns out that I was one of 80+ interns who act as their "workers" instead of hiring a real employee base. They make you go to the worst bars (Enclave or Bull and Bear) and try to have you drag your friends to them every weekend. You make $5 on every friend you bring with you or if they say your name at the door. Making your money off your friends is a bad way to make money. I wouldn't recommend working here to anyone.
