Pros

learn to talk to people on the phone, learn to be persuasive, learn good customer service, can be exciting if you enjoy cold calling

Cons

very very boring work, also very repetitive, zero compensation for a lot of hard boring hours in a small office with no windows

Advice to Management

find a new way to reach out to customers. having college students cold call potential customers is not the way to go. creating unreachable contest prizes is unfair and not right
