    I worked at AroundCampus as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Fun week in NC
    Majority of Sales Managers are good
    John O is the coolest guy you'll ever meet-it's unfortunate you don't see him often (excluding morning meetings on skype)
    you learn everything about sales-and can talk about it in future interviews

    Cons

    cold calling- completely unrealistic/dangerous in large city settings
    no office - walk around in 90+ degree weather all day alone
    Sales managers are unreliable- mine actually told me he would go to a meeting with me and 20 minutes before never answered his phone
    make under 4 dollars an hour if you calculate it-pretty much lose money for the summer
    commission is almost impossible to make

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    John needs to check in on sales managers more, or ask for reviews from the interns during the internship-ours was completely unreliable and not encouraging

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO
