The best experience you'll never want to have again

Intern (Former Employee)
College Park, MD

I worked at AroundCampus

ProsReal sales experience
Autonomy
Good training program
Total support from management
It's paid which is more than some internships can say

ConsExtremely monotonous
100% cold calling is miserable
It's honestly a bad investment for your customers
Potential clients treat you like crap

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't do print. Make it all about the website. No one wants to buy print advertising anymore. Also, let us know about promotions ahead of time, since that could help to overcome objections and make more sales in the future. Had I known I would have had deals for clients later in the summer, I wouldn't have just accepted their NO's as easily. I would've asked if I could get them a better deal and come back.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
