A good experience that I would never want to repeat

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

Pros

This internship does provide good experiences concerning sales and time and territory management. The outside sales associate will improve presentation skills and networking.

Cons

The compensation for the hours put into the job is ridiculously low. My biggest issue was that the support from management was severely lacking. After the internship is over, the company will not return calls or emails in order to address questions, concerns or requests. Several times I had sales prospects email me after my internship was over with questions. I tried to refer them to my sales manager or ask the company directly for a response to a question. I never received a response.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The management needs to be more open to communication with the interns.

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

    Pros

    Fun week in NC
    Majority of Sales Managers are good
    John O is the coolest guy you'll ever meet-it's unfortunate you don't see him often (excluding morning meetings on skype)
    you learn everything about sales-and can talk about it in future interviews

    Cons

    cold calling- completely unrealistic/dangerous in large city settings
    no office - walk around in 90+ degree weather all day alone
    Sales managers are unreliable- mine actually told me he would go to a meeting with me and 20 minutes before never answered his phone
    make under 4 dollars an hour if you calculate it-pretty much lose money for the summer
    commission is almost impossible to make

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    John needs to check in on sales managers more, or ask for reviews from the interns during the internship-ours was completely unreliable and not encouraging

    I have been working at AroundCampus as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Fun training week in NC and you get to work in a team of interns throughout the summer. If you like sales, this will help you for future jobs

    Cons

    Be prepared to be outside all day on sales calls
    No office
    Getting customers to buy from you is almost impossible, depending on your territory
    Unrealistic sales goal, problems with previous clients making renewals a pain
    You get a stipend which comes down to less than 4 dollars an hour
