    Good internship if you're looking to go into sales, bad otherwise

    Pros

    Free one week trip to North Carolina for job-training You work by yourself and make your own schedule for setting appointments with clients They provide you free housing if needed

    Cons

    They expect you to work long hours and the you are not given much territory with which to work with Selling print ads is becoming increasingly difficult and the work itself can get very boring You have to pay for your own gas and other expenses and there is very little compensation unless you sell very well (which, honestly, is based on the territory you are working with) The "managers" are people who are mostly in their mid-20s who are not genuine and will tell you what you want to hear so that you are motivated to make sales

    Advice to Management

    Overall, I was disappointed by the internship because, while the initial job training was outstanding, the entire internship was boring and often times impossible to deal with. I worked in a territory that was extremely poor and where businesses were barely surviving - they had no intention to buy over-priced print ads. I did not think the managers were helpful at all, and were very keen on "firing people" if they thought those people were not making enough sales (even though this was mostly due to the bad territory we were given). I also wish you would have been more up-front about compensation and how renewal ads worked, because what was said in training and what we actually had to do were two totally different things. I felt that employees kept a lot from the interns, and that really disappointed me.

    Pros

    Training was effective and an overall good experience.

    Cons

    Extremely misleading. They talk a fantastic game, but in reality the internship is extremely frustrating and feels as though students are being used in a fruitless environment.
