Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

+Develop yourself professionally +Receive great sales training, and great sales experience +Basically this internship is great if you plan on pursing a career in sales. Just be prepared to literally sacrifice your entire summer and deal with an awful company (harder than it sounds, trust me)

Cons

- Volume Sales - UD would rather make 10 sketchy sales than 1 legit sale - Witnessed management lie to make a sale - Was lied to by management - UD lied to business in my market about distribution, causing most renewals to be unhappy - Only pay commission on a very small number of your sales, they don't cover your gas, in the end you make little to no money - Product is worthless, advertisements do not benefit local businesses. Company makes money by using interns to do the majority of the labor while keeping all profits at the top - Multi Level Marketing - Mobil App didn't even work half the time - Distribution has been messed up on my campus for years - UD home office is worthless, they are slow and unorganized and provided little to no help at all - Felt like I was ripping off the local businesses rather than selling them a legitimate product that will help them - sales training week is really good, BUT DON'T TAKE EVERYTHING THIS COMPANY SAYS TO HEART, I have had additional B2B sales experience with a much larger and more reputable company, and I now realize that UD has a lot of flaws in their sales approach and business model

Advice to Management

- Dont lie to interns - Follow through - Cut all the cheesy motivational tips and outrageous sales goals and get with reality

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

    Pros

    -one of the best sales training programs for interns -opportunity to stand out amongst every other intern -managers are extremely supportive -build close relationships with hundreds of local businesses in your college town

    Cons

    -the company itself is horrible. The home office cannot get anything right, ever, and they get mad at you when you try and fix their mistakes. - you will have angry clients when all is said and done because the graphic design team is also completely useless. Artwork gets screwed up and people get upset, then you get blamed.

    Advice to Management

    Be more genuine about how hard this is. Don't trick everyone into thinking a sales pitch means you will succeed.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic training. Good leadership. Great experience

    Cons

    It's too hot outside... low pay lots of miles put on car

    Advice to Management

    Provide better pay. The wear and tear your car will take is worth more than employees receive. Other than that, great internship.
