    Pros

    Managers were very friendly and fair. Working in team atmosphere is motivating. Every once in a while you run across a friendly customer who'll save your day.

    Cons

    The daily grind of a sales position gets rough at times. Door-to-door cold calling gets old really quick.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the motivating words. Having college kids do the heavy lifting is actually a pretty smart thing, but stinks if they get discouraged.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at AroundCampus as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    good experience opportunity for someone that doesn't really need the money.

    Cons

    -only get paid $200/wk , visit over 30 businesses each day, but you have to pay for own gas in car.
    -training is draining & overly scripted sales

    Advice to Management

    Pay student interns more because the money is definitely needed.
