Pros

I have no idea if all branches function the same. This one had very flexible hours, and the pay wasn't anything to complain about. Pleasant co-workers.

Cons

Deceptive interviews. Took this over another internship, based off of the job description. They describe it as a 'marketing campaign internship', and will give you a few token projects .. but you basically spend 80% of your time cold-calling people. I found this task to be quite unpleasant, as most people don't appreciate being telemarketed to.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Put the sales aspect in the job description. I'm sure you can find people who will want this internship, and function better than those like me who are dissatisfied.

    Pros

    Benefits are ok, good group of people to work with

    Cons

    If you like being treated like a child and micromanagement beyond belief this is the place for you. Don't bother working hard because promotions are based on who you know not what you know. Management says they want a remarkable experience and this is true because they want to suck every dollar out of the customer they can just like any insurance company. Don't waste your time at this dump

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people fairly, don't be afraid to speak up for the people that make you successful in fear of missing out on your next promotion.
