I worked at College Pro full-time (More than 3 years)

Gained real small business experience while in college.

Long hours and not the best reputation.

Advice to Management

Screen the new franchisees very carefully. This is not a position that many college students are able to be successful at.

    Pros

    The learning and the skill development is easily the most intense and valuable part of the job. You are given responsibilities at an incredibly young age that most people won't see until well into their career. The ability to make decisions, learn from all of you actions and have the support of other people around you to help solve problems when they occur is unparalleled. I learned a thousand times more running this business than college could have ever taught me and not just about business, about life and myself. Pushing the limits, experiencing extreme highs as well as extreme lows prepares you for just about anything you will encounter later in life.

    Cons

    You work your ass off. if you are not willing to put in more time than you have ever had to work don't look into the job it will be too much for you. You earn every penny you make in this business and you know it. The low points can be painful and it is incredibly difficult to understand that the experiences that you are going through may not be paying off in terms of money, instead they are paying off in skill and learning (which translates into money later in life), You will work more hours and have longer days than ever before.

    Advice to Management

    Tell it like it is, it's real easy and awesome to talk about the good stuff, but the bad stuff is what people usually need to hear to truly learn. The hard conversations need to happen early and accountability is important.

    I have been working at College Pro as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Rewarding--Real-Life skill development that you can use personally and professionally. Huge network for future employment. What you put in is what you get out. No one decides how much you are worth,your own hard work does.

    Cons

    It is not for everyone. It is challenging.
