    A scam; they expect you to work sub-minimum wage, and have no organized pay structure

    Pros

    Well, if you like talking to strangers and petting people's jobs, the work isn't bad.

    Cons

    My manager straight out deceived me about what I would be paid and how. I ended up working two weeks and making only $20 dollars, despite the fact that I was told I would make five times that. And then was fired when I complained.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have company-wide standards so individual managers cannot decide they don't want to pay their employees on a whim.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    Learn important life skills like sales, marketing, business and time management

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours, low stipends

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to help out more in terms of stipends to cover gas and phone bills, which will skyrocket during this internship
