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

    Pros

    -- Fantastic training program
    -- Ability to make your own decisions
    -- Real world sales experience
    -- First hand experience dealing with objections (this will provide great experience to share during interviews)
    -- Work with an entire team of people to bounce ideas/tips/tricks with
    -- Supportive upper management
    -- Helpful daily webinars with the President, John O'Brien
    -- Although you work in a school specific team, there is an entire team back at the home-office willing to help you through any problem

    Ultimately, you really have to be (or become) self-motivated to do this internship. You are, essentially, your own boss. It's really an experience like no other, and I would recommend it, time and time again.

    Cons

    -- It's hard work; expect that. However, a summer with UD will show you some of the greatest sales experience out there for people our age.

    I worked at AroundCampus as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You will learn to uncover the needs of others and solve problems which can benefit both your professional and social life.
    You will develop super-powers such as the ability to start a conversation with anyone, anywhere and an invulnerability to rejection.
    If you go into the internship with an open-mind and the goal of learning these skills, it can be a life-changing experience.

    Cons

    The pay is terrible. With the amount of work and dedication required to succeed in this internship, you will be making pennies relative to even menial jobs.
    There is little support from managers once you exit their training program and get into your own market. (They will help you over the phone and meet in-person 1-2 times over your 3 months working which I found inadequate.)
    Rejection can be painful if you are not strong-willed and able to move on.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more on-site support to sales teams. This will not only help reps learn by example, it will increase accountability for sales figures.
