I worked at The Campus Special (More than a year)
This company did an amazing job training all new comers to the program. It was a great experience and management did a great job helping us succeed.
The downside of working with Campus special is that it is B2B sales which can be tough for some. You have to be prepared to accept rejection. Also I was selling the advertising in a really bad market where there was a ton of competition
I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at The Campus Special (Santa Clara, CA) in April 2015.
The job was posted on the College career website. I had to send in my resume. After they reviewed my resume, they contacted me via email to set up an interview on campus. The entire interview lasted approximately 30 minutes. Within four hours, I was notified via email that they offered me the job. I was invited to attend a 3 day training seminar in Chicago. However, I later learned from a colleague who quit after one week, that they made him pay back the cost of the airfare and hotel accommodations. This was outlined in fine print in the contract; however, the average person probably would miss it.
There was no negotiation phase. The salary is commission only
