    I worked at PocketMoney full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Training conference was a lot of fun. you get to meet students from different colleges. You'll learn a lot during the day and get some team bonding in The managers are very supportive and really caring people. They care about your success and whenever you need to vent, they are there. The experience makes you tougher, smarter, and more confident The app is really cool and something that will probably take off in most...

    Cons

    It's hot out during the summer and you're outside a lot you are only paid when you make a sale or when you win a contest Some students drop off because they aren't tough and you might be the only one in your market if this happens

    Advice to Management

    Continue to push the mobile app, more contests during the summer. Loved my internship keep it up!!

      I worked at PocketMoney full-time (Less than a year)

      Pros

There are tons of motivation and praises every day that keeps you inspire to work each day Each team manager is very professional and know their market very well and of course they always open to for questions or any concern. You get to speak...

      Cons

      It is hot in the summer, of course and you will have to spend most of your time in the car if you want to earn some money. Could run into some rude people you might not the only company that is doing this in the location so it gets competitive

      I have been working at PocketMoney full-time

      Pros

      This internship is completely what you make of it, which can be a good thing or a bad thing. It separates the hard workers from the slackers. The managers are all really nice, friendly, and encouraging and inspire you to do your best! And if you are good at sales you can make a decent amount of money, better than an unpaid internship. This internship also connects you to a lot of business owner and helps you build sales...

      Cons

      Some of the cons include paying for gas if the market you work in is spread out. As I said in the pros, this internship is challenging and if you don't put the work into it, you won't make any money.

      Advice to Management

      There are still some bugs to work out, especially because this is still a relatively new company. For example, on time distribution with the books and better collection of payments from clients.

      Pros

      Pocket Money coupons offered me the opportunity to do a few jobs for them and they were very clear on the instructions of the job being offered Also, the payment was fast and efficient! it was an overall good experience!

      Cons

      Pocket money coupons had no cons of working for them.

      Advice to Management

      keep doing what you are doing. Also, to get more interns, explain to them what they would be doing exactly when you first offer them the internship.

        I worked at PocketMoney full-time (Less than a year)

        Pros

        I developed my communication, interpersonal, project management, accounts receivable and marketing skills by working with local business owners every single day. I also learned a lot of wonderful negotiating skills that is applicable to my daily life. You also earn commission based upon your sales and it is uncapped. This means that you can make as much money as you want and are incentivized to work as hard as you can...

        Cons

        The managers are traveling managers and are not always available to you in person. However, there are daily morning meetings to discuss goals and such for the day. Also, they encourage you to call them when you need encouragement, want to discuss businesses and when you're in meetings to negotiate deals in order to close sales.

        Advice to Management

        Inform all account executives of the requirements for the coupon books including number of pages, amount of businesses that should be signed up for the app and etc at the start of the internship. I also would suggest opening up the divided territory earlier in the summer so that more businesses can be signed up.

        I worked at PocketMoney full-time (Less than a year)

        Pros

        The internship was more of a job since I was actually doing practical and real world projects that many people do in careers. I learned a lot of skills that will help me in my future and the career partners program already landed me a job for when I graduate. I also had a really supportive team to work with and my managers Brad and Clint were always there when I needed help.

        Cons

        Selling advertising isn't the easiest thing to do so you have to be very hardworking and dedicated if you want to succeed. A lot of my clients told me they weren't interested at first but I kept going back to them and building more value. By the end of the summer I had half of my college town in the coupon book but it did take a lot of hard work!

        Advice to Management

        Keep doing what you're doing. Love the new app and so do all of my friends!

        I worked at PocketMoney full-time (Less than a year)

        Pros

        Through this internship, I gained valuable skills that I would not have otherwise developed. I gained experience in the sales profession and learned how to come back to rejections and make those rejections into sales. At the beginning of the summer, I was very shy, quiet, and nervous when talking to potential customers. With the consistent help of management and their commitment to helping me grow as not only an account...

        Cons

        Although it is considered a paid internship, this should not be your only source of income for the summer. While the experience is great, this internship is not for you if you are looking for only monetary gain. This internship is great for gaining skills and learning to be persistent. It is hard work (9-5 each day, going business to business) but the harder you work, the more it will pay off.

        Advice to Management

        Staggering start dates of the different sales areas so that each team can get a week of training with a manager personally would be more effective.
