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

Pros

-one of the best sales training programs for interns
-opportunity to stand out amongst every other intern
-managers are extremely supportive
-build close relationships with hundreds of local businesses in your college town

Cons

-the company itself is horrible. The home office cannot get anything right, ever, and they get mad at you when you try and fix their mistakes.
- you will have angry clients when all is said and done because the graphic design team is also completely useless. Artwork gets screwed up and people get upset, then you get blamed.

Advice to Management

Be more genuine about how hard this is. Don't trick everyone into thinking a sales pitch means you will succeed.

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

    Pros

    Fantastic training. Good leadership. Great experience

    Cons

    It's too hot outside...
    low pay
    lots of miles put on car

    Advice to Management

    Provide better pay. The wear and tear your car will take is worth more than employees receive. Other than that, great internship.
