Recommends

Pros

Real world experience
Work as a team
Great Managers
Sales Training at UNC for a week
Structured program
One of the few paid internships

Cons

It is very difficult work
You can get unlucky with your territory
It is strictly cold calling
It can become monotonous

Advice to Management

You should tell sales representatives to write down the reasons for why the are rejected. I did not know prices would go down or there would be alive after five at the beginning of the summer. This would have been useful to know so reps can know to go back or not.

    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.

    "Decent Job... If you're into sales"

    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.
