I loved the training, but the actual job takes a lot of determination to get past cold calling.

I worked at AroundCampus as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

It gave me experience talking with all types of business leaders. It gave me the framework to sell a product and its benefits. If you are prepared, success will come easier. Training is excellent and management takes pride in their interns.

Cons

It can be disheartening after a while. Individuals for this job need the determination and the will to be a salesperson. If you aren't very outgoing, I wouldn't recommend this job.
