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

    Pros

    - Training in North Carolina was great.
    - Met some great people, including my boyfriend (;
    - Worked own schedule.

    Cons

    - VERY underpaid for the work you do.
    - when talking to the "decision makers", they did not like UD at all.

    Advice to Management
