    Pros

    This internship does provide good experiences concerning sales and time and territory management. The outside sales associate will improve presentation skills and networking.

    Cons

    The compensation for the hours put into the job is ridiculously low. My biggest issue was that the support from management was severely lacking. After the internship is over, the company will not return calls or emails in order to address questions, concerns or requests. Several times I had sales prospects email me after my internship was over with questions. I tried to refer them to my sales manager or ask the company directly for a response to a question. I never received a response.

    Advice to Management

    The management needs to be more open to communication with the interns.
