Not what I was promised at the interview.

Independent Sales Contractor (Former Employee)

I worked at AroundCampus as an intern for less than a year

ProsI met some very nice students and worked with an amazing team. Really liked the training we got before the sales internship started.

ConsMy manager did not know much about my territory. I was in a "dangerous" environment, walking around and trying to sell. The territories were supposed to be divided evenly so everyone had a fair share, but they were not. It was extremely hot, we had no central location to meet and got parking tickets because we were downtown, very little assistance or aid after we started. I was never told we would be doing cold calls.....

Advice to Senior ManagementDefinitely spend more time looking into the territories you are sending students out to. The pay is not enough for the time and dedication this job takes on a daily basis. Maybe have a regional manager work with students during the first week, or someone who has done the internship before and was successful. Try to keep moral up. The hardest part was making it through the hot summer days dealing with rude customers.
