Challenging for a callow student, but a rewarding experience

Manager (Former Employee)
Vancouver, BC (Canada)

Pros-The money is surreal (if you work hard)
-You learn a ridiculous amount about time and people management. Because you will be literally budgeting jobs to the minute every time.
-It is a tough job but the General Manager also acts as a mentor, so it is a perfect way to ease into the non-babysitting environment of real life.
-You get plenty of experience in communication.

Cons-The work is difficult. One might go out and cold-call for an entire day and spending hard earned money on marketing without getting any leads.
-Work is outdoors, sometimes in pouring rain. Though of course you are given the choice to work that day or postpone it with the customer.
-Not all home owners are friendly to cold callers. (Though it was a surprisingly high 50/50 in my area)

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have done an awesome job. Both the visits from the VP and the very personal, caring GMs make this company seem like a circle of family.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Given unrealistic expectations from the start

    Franchise Manager (Former Employee)
    Seattle, WA

    I worked at College Pro as an intern for less than a year


    Pros: If you're great at selling and enjoy door to door cold calling then… Cons: 60-70 work weeks, very high pay back cost for supplied, weren't upfront with fees I would… Advice to Senior Management: Need to be more upfront with costs before having students… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
