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

Pros

Looks good on a resume
Possibilities for networking

Cons

Multiple managers breathing down your neck
Very low compensation
Long hours and demanding schedules
Literally drive around all day
Lasts literally the entire summer
Being told to work toward unrealistic goals
They frown upon you if you don't work overtime some nights
The company relies on interns to make almost all of its profits

Advice to Management

Pay more attention to the advice and insights that the interns are giving you. They are actually out in the field and know a lot more about whether your techniques and methods are working.

Don't make it required for each team to have 2 meetings every day. They become monotonous and just end up costing us more gas to talk about the same things.

Put a LOT more effort into advertising your cruel products. This will make it a lot easier for the interns to get clients interested in buying.

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

    Pros

    +Develop yourself professionally
    +Receive great sales training, and great sales experience
    +Basically this internship is great if you plan on pursing a career in sales. Just be prepared to literally sacrifice your entire summer and deal with an awful company (harder than it sounds, trust me)

    Cons

    - Volume Sales - UD would rather make 10 sketchy sales than 1 legit sale
    - Witnessed management lie to make a sale
    - Was lied to by management
    - UD lied to business in my market about distribution, causing most renewals to be unhappy
    - Only pay commission on a very small number of your sales, they don't cover your gas, in the end you make little to no money
    - Product is worthless, advertisements do not benefit local businesses. Company makes money by using interns to do the majority of the labor while keeping all profits at the top - Multi Level Marketing
    - Mobil App didn't even work half the time
    - Distribution has been messed up on my campus for years
    - UD home office is worthless, they are slow and unorganized and provided little to no help at all
    - Felt like I was ripping off the local businesses rather than selling them a legitimate product that will help them
    - sales training week is really good, BUT DON'T TAKE EVERYTHING THIS COMPANY SAYS TO HEART, I have had additional B2B sales experience with a much larger and more reputable company, and I now realize that UD has a lot of flaws in their sales approach and business model

    Advice to Management

    - Dont lie to interns
    - Follow through
    - Cut all the cheesy motivational tips and outrageous sales goals and get with reality
