I worked at Southwestern Advantage

Pros

- Southwestern's goal is to build character in young people. This experience exposes you to every success habit you need to succeed in any industry. On top of that, the inherent independence that comes with the job gives every student a real opportunity to ingrain those habits as a part of their life.
- unbelievable culture of positive people focused on helping each other grow. From the president and CEO all the way down to the student salespeople.
- one of the best undergraduate sales training in the nation (155 year old program)
- extremely hard work but because of that it is extremely rewarding if you stay committed
- great chance to make money to help off set rising college tuition
- from the top down, CEO and president included, all management sold as independent contractors when they were in college. Because of that the leadership is unbelievable.

Cons

- It's definitely not for everyone. You must have an entrepreneurial spirit and a strong desire to set yourself apart from your peers. If you don't work extremely hard and you aren't committed, this job is quite frankly, miserable. The harder you work the more fun and the more rewarding it is.
- No guarantees. But just like anything in life, you get what you put into it.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- keep it up.

    Cons

    Work-Life Balance is doable but very difficult to make a career out of it.
    The profits from recruiting are more personal growth than financial in the first few years, but you could not pay any school to learn what you do through learning how to recruit.
    Chalenging if you do not get yourself mentally prepared.

    Pros

    You will never find better management who cares more about you than with this company.
    It's a great resume booster.
    Great sales training/experience.

    Cons

    The work schedule is very demanding.
    You have to be willing to give up your entire summer to run your business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for being such great mentors to me and all my peers. Management is a huge reason why many students choose to return to the business another year.
