I have been working at AroundCampus as an intern for 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    Positive atmosphere
    Management is encouraging
    Independent work
    Training is an absolute blast
    It's a great resume booster.

    Cons

    To be successful the job goes well beyond 8:30-5:30
    Selling print advertisement for a directory or planner
    Independent work (It's easy to take that long lunch or slack)
    Work/life balance isn't good. Job is always on your mind.
    You have to be annoying/persistent to make sales.
    Pay is $200 a week for 10 or 12 weeks depending on your market. Once you hit a certain

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management did all they could. The product is the problem, not management.
