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.

    Pros

    This company places its core values in education and the provision of that education to the masses. It has excellent people who emphasize positivity, balance, schedule, organization, and motivation.

    Cons

    It is tough work. You will ideally work 75-80hr a week. Selling educational texts and software door-to-door is not an easy task. There is going to be a lot of sales "rejection."

    Advice to Management

    Great Job.
