    Pros

    I have no pros. This was one of the most regretful parts of my college experience. No internship is better than this one.

    Cons

    The Internship is a total scam. They fly you out to NC to stay in moldy rooms that are cold. You get little to no sleep during training because they keep you up late at night memorizing a sales script. Then they fly you back after 9 yes 9 days later and you start "selling" a useless product. Also, they are not willing to help you. There was a mistake made on my business cards and they suggested that I cross it out and write over it... Really professional right? You get very little money for the amount of time you spend working, they don't pay for any gas or work expenses. A SALES CALL is going into a business which they conveniently don't tell you until you arrive in chapel hill. SO yes you are expected to DRIVE to 30+ businesses per day and sell them something useless. Then you make hardly any commission on your sales. There are so many better options. DON'T LET THEM TAKE ADVANTAGE OF YOU!!

    Advice to Management

    I never saw any of your product distributed on my campus. You are taking advantage of students who are looking for relevant experience.

    Pros

    Company provides professional B2B sales management opportunities for employees very early in their sales careers.
    Company sales training is very strong, and company spends thousands of dollars per intern to fly them across country and train them with no promise that the intern will ever be a strong seller.
    Very young, high-energy sales environment. Refreshing to see young professionals passionate about helping college students begin their career.
    New president has strong vision for the company.

    Cons

    Regional Manager position seasonally has a lot of travel. Mainly during early spring and summer, the Regional Managers are traveling almost every week. This can be exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Let department heads really lead their departments. Allow employees to trust that their department head is in charge of the day to day decisions.

    I worked at AroundCampus (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Strong training program for an internship. Did a good job at explaining the sales process, and you get to connect with many other salesmen, management, and prospective employers who come from all over the country to the same training conference

    Cons

    Did not prepare me for an excessive amount of cold calling. Their products are outdated, and businesses understand that as well. Management expects you to be extremely pushy, and they train you to not accept no as an answer. At times, I felt uncomfortable being forced to go back to a business that respectfully declined our service. Unreasonable sales goals and expectations.
