    Pros

    A large amount of training to help you sell more effectively

    Motivation to step outside your comfort zone and become a better person because of it

    A tremendous amount of practice selling to others so that you can sharpen your selling skills

    Cons

    It is hard for the management to spend a large amount of time with each team, and you must rely on your teammates. Therefore, this is a positive and negative aspect of the company.

    Pros

    Real sales experience

    Total support from management
    It's paid which is more than some internships can say

    Cons

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don'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.
