    Pros

    Grew personally, learned a lot about people and sales

    Cons

    no time to yourself except for when you're working. You burn out quickly! It was not good for my health afterwards.

    Pros

    No place like Southwestern to build character, meet motivated people and learn Sales

    Cons

    I wasn't prepared for the sales territory that I was sent to (predominantly Mexican and unable to speak English) and occasionally it would have been nice to see more support from individual managers who didn't seem to care if you were struggling for a bit.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time in field with beginners.
