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

Pros

Great customer service experience
Gain an understanding of sales without having to do it yourself
Great people to work with
Learn a lot about time management and multitasking

Cons

Low pay
Frustrating because others may put in less effort and receive the same rewards
Not a very difficult or challenging internship

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire less interns and pay more... they will get the work done. There is a lack of motivation to do the various tasks with the amount of effort desired by management

    Pros

    You learn a lifetime of relationship building and sales skills.
    If you work hard and do well, you WILL be recruited by great companies for full time jobs.
    The training program is a blast.

    Cons

    It is a B2B sales internship. Since you are speaking with and presenting to business owners and marketing directors, it can be very difficult. You have to follow up with your prospects on a daily basis if you want to be successful. Long hours and although you make money every week, you don't get commission until after the internship.
