Horrible Experience-Even for Sales

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsYou get the opportunity to see a lot of businesses in your college community.
If you know you want a career in sales, then this would probably be a good option for a summer internship.
I realized what I don't want to do for a career.

ConsThis was the worst job I have ever had. The training did not prepare me whatsoever for the internship, and all they do is go on and on about how this is going to be the best summer job ever. The pay is horrible. I spent more on gas than what I made each week. The job description itself is fairly vague, and I had no idea of what I was actually doing until the first day of work. And the approach to selling is all wrong. They tell you to question the business owner and find out their needs, but they tell you to say the same thing to each owner, regardless of their specified needs. Also, the prices are ridiculously high for reaching such a narrow market. Most business owners will realize that this is a horrible way to actually reach the students and will (wisely) realize that this would be an utter waste of their money. I felt so sleazy the entire time I was trying to sell.

Advice to Senior ManagementTell your interns what they will actually be doing, and set realistic goals. Selling is based on catering to the customer, not throwing them a memorized pitch that doesn't even relate to the business' needs.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
