Pros

Fun work environment and decent training program. Looks great on a resume if your looking to go into sales. Somewhat felxibile- work as hard as you want to(very independent)

Cons

Pay/Compensation was very low. Long hours if you actually did what you were expected to. Business owners treat you like crap.

Advice to Management

Need to keep a better watch out for sales reps. The majority of interns do not do the work they are required to do. Do mileage/gas reimbursement- I actually lost money over the summer- especially after taxes.

    Pros

    Managers were very friendly and fair. Working in team atmosphere is motivating. Every once in a while you run across a friendly customer who'll save your day.

    Cons

    The daily grind of a sales position gets rough at times. Door-to-door cold calling gets old really quick.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the motivating words. Having college kids do the heavy lifting is actually a pretty smart thing, but stinks if they get discouraged.

    "Good trial internship to decide whether or not you would like to do sales."

    Pros

    Great training program for internship. Training is very fun (you are with 500 other college students for a week) and helpful in covering sales presentations and product. Good internship to decide whether or not you would like to pursue a career in sales.

    Cons

    Main product (College Yellow Page Ads) is becoming very hard to sell to businesses. Territories can become unevenly divided among sales reps.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a shift in just trying to sell yellow page ads. Initial ad prices should be considered more carefully.
