    Pros

    Teaches independent work ethics.
    Gives you self confidence in networking abilities.
    Training is awesome, with an exiting environment that really inspires you.
    My manager was always available to talk and give me feedback.
    Forces you to be resourceful.

    Cons

    The product is not incredibly easy to sell because companies are looking for a pay-per-click form of advertisement, which they did not have when I was there.
    Can be a little overwhelming, you need to learn to be self motivated through the entire day.
    Driving costs can go over base pay, so you might want to consider walking or biking.

    Advice to Management

    Keep having that upbeat spirit and incredible availability! I really liked that as an intern I was able to talk to the CEO and give him some input.

    Pros

    Incredible learning and engagement experience with business to business sales and becoming comfortable with closing a sale. Enhances leadership abilities, work ethic, organizational and communication skills.

    Cons

    It is hard work and although it is great experience there is little pay. It is hardly enough to cover the amount of gas you will use depending on where you are selling.

    Advice to Management

    Work on home office support.

    Pros

    Week long Training in NC was awesome. Regional Managers aren't always around. Great experience talking to business owners and it feels awesome when you make sales. If you give this a internship a good effort and are comfortable talking to strangers in a professional manner you will do great. Be personable, be outgoing and you wont regret it.

    Cons

    It can be discouraging to get rejected a lot. It can feel like you don't want to keep working but it is better than working in an office copying papers. You have the freedom to go where you want, pitch what you want and be as good as you want at this internship.

    Advice to Management

    Put a front cover blurb that says Coupons Inside! Incorporate a ride sharing part of the app similar to UBER. It was a great summer!

    Pros

    - Awesome training week at the University of North Carolina. (Be prepared to get to know a sales script)
    - Work 8:30 to 5:30ish Monday through Friday. Weekends off.
    - Get what you put into it. Getting to know the business owners can really make the difference between a good summer and a poor one.
    - Can get job offers from business partners after completion of the internship.
    - Region had a group paintball session at one of the sales from the summer.

    Cons

    - Lot of driving.
    - Can get frustrating during lulls in sales.
    - Gets difficult at the end of the summer to find places you have not talked to yet.
    - Get paid on commission.

    Advice to Management

    Be more positive in the critiques. When a sales call does not go the way you had intended give feedback that will help instead of hurting the psyche of the sales reps even more. Try to break up the monotony of each week with more activities. Alive After 5 felt more like working overtime than it did having a "fun" night on the town.

    Pros

    You will learn a lot about sales and it is really great hands on experience. You also go through a week training in North Carolina which is very valuable. The regional managers are great and you will work with a bunch of people your own age.

    Cons

    The pay is low especially since you are using your own gas.

    Advice to Management

    Raise the pay
