    I have been working at ProCamps (Less than a year)

    Exposed to a lot of high end athletes and coaches. Great entry into sports industry. Young staff that are all willing to help.

    Cons

    A lot of cold calling. Very limited work variety. Little pay.

    I worked at ProCamps as an intern

    Pros

    - dress code is very laid back and relaxed
    - employees are nice
    - learn how to cold call

    Cons

    In office
     - very repetitive, boring work consisting of being on google maps
    - barely any training or guides for how they want you to talk to businesses/customers
    - so many cold calls, IF YOU DON"T LIKE COLD CALLING, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU
    - have you run long distance errands and don't compensate for gas

    Warehouse Intern
    - lots of counting, picking up boxes, folding stuff, and deflating footballs (deflated footballs for 2 hours once)
    - don't learn anything about logistics even though it is a warehouse/logistics internship

    Unpaid Internship

    Advice to Management

    make the internship experience a better learning experience and be more upfront of what you expect from interns during the interview process

    I worked at ProCamps as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Staff are pretty great. Young, likable group of people. They're a lot of fun and hardworking. You get to attend very cool sports camps with professional athletes. You may get to travel to camps as well. Other interns were enjoyable and great to be around. No GPA minimum if yours is low.

    Cons

    Low compensation for food when traveling to camps (well below state recommended). Unpaid hourly, small stipend (full-time intern hourly pay comes out to $0.64/hour if you do the full 16-weeks). Monotonous, repetitive work (answering phones, calling past campers to sign up for another, contacting potential caterers).

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking advantage of college students. There were a lot of overheard complaints about interns not doing anything at work, but there's no incentive to work hard. Recruit less interns and pay them minimum (at least) to do the repetitive but necessary work.

    Pros

    Great experience in sport camp services.

    Cons

    Slave internship and toke advantage of college workers

    Advice to Management

    Be invested in your interns and don't expect the world of them either.

    I worked at ProCamps as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great office environment
    Work with other great interns who share a lot of the same interests
    Opportunity to get hired on if you connect well with staff and work hard during events

    Cons

    Heavy on the cold calling, expect upwards of 50 cold calls per day.
    Use your own vehicle to run errands for people

    Advice to Management

    I would have one company car for interns. Running errands all around town isn't a problem but using your own vehicle and gas is; especially when you aren't being compensated.

    I worked at ProCamps as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Really get to do a lot of the dirty work that comes with planning the camps. The company has a lot of high profile clients. The employees are all enthusiastic and friendly. There really is a great team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Not much variety in the work. As an intern you do a ton of cold-calling, looking up local youth organizations and answering phone calls. A lot of the same monotonous tasks were given to the interns.

    I worked at ProCamps as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exposure to high level of organization. Forms good decision making skills in high pressure situations. Provides opportunity to interact with professional athletes, their teams and their circles. Has involvement from many facets (sales, operations, marketing, local and national sponsors, media, etc.)

    Cons

    The only negative thing that people may see from this company is that it's nonstop from April to August with camps. The days probably average around 14 hours during that time but the experience supersedes fatigue. Also, most sports related jobs have long strenuous hours. I don't think it's a con but it could be seen as such.

    Pros

    Good people with family environment.

    Cons

    Overall a poor product. 9-5 pay with not 9-5 hours. No sport perks - it is the sport industry!
