    I worked at AroundCampus full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Very in-depth sales training
    - Social, young sales reps that were easy to get along with

    Cons

    OKAY so if you want to deal with an archaic marketing method, ambiguous management, and absolute garbage pay, this is the perfect company for you. Training was exhausting and there were a lot of unprofessional people there, sales reps and management included. You felt like you were at summer camp with all the chants and games. When I would ask a question to management regarding the product/objections, they had 0 idea of what to say. No compensation for gas, even if you were working in a completely different city/campus that the company assigned you to, and you're working a minimum 40 hours a week with $150/week with very little commission (you do the math on the $150).

    Advice to Management

    Even though these are college students you are hiring as sales reps, you can't always justify this horrendous pay with "this is great experience". College students actually have to SAVE and pay for tuition, books, loans, gas, food, etc. It would be better experience if you were making an innovative product. Be more transparent with everyone involved, and don't give a beat around the bush answer. IMPROVE YOU PRODUCT AND MANAGEMENT OR YOU ARE GOING TO FAIL.
