Pros

You are able to work closely with a sales team and bounce ideas off of each other. Furthermore it teaches you to become comfortable in an uncomfortable situation and become more extraverted.

Cons

The job itself is tiring and draining. You are doing door to door sales so you hear a lot of "no's." It seems the company is confused about their own culture. Many managers switch between the role of manager and that of a friend.

Advice to Management

Invest less in the interns and the selling and more in the product. The product was very difficult to sell because it was not moving with the times and innovative.

    Pros

    Awesome management and team/friends, get to meet business owners and make friends, get to be very independent. Learning a lot from rejections/meeting people.

    Cons

    Internship--so not a lot of pay. Sometimes negativity from people can discourage you since there are a lot of rejections. If you work really hard you'll get more out of it.

  2. Excellent learning experience

    Pros

    Outstanding management and they are constantly striving to uplift the interns in times of low productivity. In the few months of this internship you will learn more than an entire year in the classroom.

    Cons

    Gas is going to kill you! Although it is a paid internship, it doesn't do much to offset all the miles you will put on your car.
