Pros

You will never find better management who cares more about you than with this company.
It's a great resume booster.
Great sales training/experience.

Cons

The work schedule is very demanding.
You have to be willing to give up your entire summer to run your business.

Advice to Management

Thanks for being such great mentors to me and all my peers. Management is a huge reason why many students choose to return to the business another year.

    -Chance to make a lot of money in a small amount of time

    -Good networking
    -Great people

    Cons

    Everything depends upon the group you are recruited in. You can still make a lot of money in a negative group, but there is less of chance you will want to come back. Or you can make close to nothing and want to come back if you had a group of really encouraging people surrounding you.

    Advice to Management

    Their going in a good direction.

    Pros

    Southwestern Company could give you your most productive summer ever in your entire school life. It is like an intense training on attitude and mentality. Many people experienced personal growth after finishing even just one summer. The harder you try, the more you get out of this job. The skills you may acquire from this company are applicable to many aspects in life.

    Cons

    The job (selling) is easy, but the entire process you go through in the four months is tough. Not all the prospective customers you meet are nice. There will be frustration at times. It is important that you learn how to deal with your emotion.

    Advice to Management

    Focus even more on preparing the selected candidates mentally before sending them to the bookfield, or even before sales school.
