Pros

Fun training week in NC and you get to work in a team of interns throughout the summer. If you like sales, this will help you for future jobs

Cons

Be prepared to be outside all day on sales calls
No office
Getting customers to buy from you is almost impossible, depending on your territory
Unrealistic sales goal, problems with previous clients making renewals a pain
You get a stipend which comes down to less than 4 dollars an hour
