    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Free sales training (though the training week is exhausting and the constant parties/drinking get on your nerves)
    Meet lots of business owners and students from other schools

    Cons

    Long hours with little pay (less than $4 an hour on a "commission" basis for 40 hours a week when you do the math)
    B2B sales that involves chasing down clients on your own gas (and most of the time they don't buy)
    A lot of pressure for not a lot of reward
    Product you are selling can be expensive and hard to sell
    Very few actually make commission

    Advice to Management

    Improve the product and app (broken app) and pay your interns higher commission or at least minimum wage.

    Pros

    - Puts you in a position to get a great job after school - I now work for a career partner who LOVES recruiting from UD
    - Can't beat the training your receive
    - Gain experience talking with business professionals
    - Managers offer career advice, review resumes, and serve as great references
    - Competitive environment
    - Reward for success
    - Ability to earn commission, but you have a $200/ week minimum
    - PAID internship

    Work your tail off, and you'll be set for a job after college.

    Advice to Management

    Find some way to monitor actual performance vs. recorded performance (lying about number of calls a day)
