Good place to work, would recommend
Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NEFebruary 7, 2018
Sandhills has been a great company to work for over the years. Would highly recommend to apply there. There is a large earning potential and you get to work with great customers in sales. I have enjoyed my time here. It is competitive, and fast paced, but that keeps me motivated.

Strong company to work for and develop your skills.

Great company, old school culture, but the pay is great, and the managers are even better. They work very hard for you to succeed. Prepare to travel frequently.

Excellent company to build connections. Growing very fast, and is the #1 company in the industry; which is big for sales.

Only 10 days vacation every year for your first 3 years.

Best Sales Internship Ever
Sales Intern (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NEDecember 16, 2017
Can honestly say Sandhills Publishing offers the best internship possible for a college student. The internship has a great hourly wage with uncapped commission potential, and gives intern the experience needed to do anything they want upon graduation. Interns set their own schedule, are given a tablet and iPhone, and have the opportunity to make $40-$50 an hour consistently. Interns just moved into a brand new state-of-the-art building, and upon graduation always have the ability to open the conversation into full-time opportunities. Intern management can feel very micro-managed (I've received the same email 5 times within an hour from different levels of management), and if they want their hand in on what you are doing, they definitely will. Strict white shirt & tie dress code, no exceptions. Very hard focus on the bottom line. Opportunity for travel even as a student. Culture is the part to be most improved on...often the feel is full-time reps and even interns dislike their jobs and are only their for money. Great opportunity to make as much money as you want, without having to call and sell to people in your private life (like Northwestern Mutual). Overall, extremely great internship and can't be thankful enough for finding it.

Friendly work place not too difficult
Software Developer Intern (Current Employee) –  Scottsdale, AZOctober 13, 2017
Work from 7-4 every day of the week. Not expected to work more or less.Work place is fine, not too much pressure as a developer to get stuff done. Management is fine, they understand you have school. Hardest part is learning the code base. The culture is decent people are friendly and easy to get along with.

Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NEAugust 11, 2017
Fast paced. Great people. Just don't agree with everything that goes on there. Lots of travel which was good for me. Not enough room for advancement. Waiting for someone to quit to advance.

Terrible Culture
Interactive Designer (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NEJuly 25, 2017
Good job experience when you first get out of college but do NOT stick around, no opportunity for growth and terrible workplace culture. Managers are arrogant and ignorant.

Typical day at work will involve sales calls, work trips, and meetings throughout the week. Very rewarding career if your sales oriented. Sky is also the limit for compensation. Very rewarding company if you want to work hard.

Solid employer to build experience in sales as an intern.
Sales Intern (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NEMay 18, 2017
They have a good intern program where they show you several facets of the business and train you to be an effective sales rep. The pay is generous for a college student but bureaucracy and favoritism prevent advancement.

I sincerely appreciate the professionalism of the company and the work mentality. At Sandhills I have opportunities to prove myself through the work that I do on a daily basis and know that I can continue to grow as a professional.

The fast paced environment gives you the opportunity to learn in an exciting environment that evolves within the industries you work in.

I definitely recommend to those who are looking to progress and find a competitive, well paid, professional environment.

Productive workplace with some amazing coworkers
Auction Support Specialist (Former Employee) –  Lincoln, NEMarch 9, 2017
You learn alot in this very open workplace environment. The people made the job and the environment fun and exciting. Depending on the manager, the management was relaxed enough to give you space. Some managers liked to micromanage constantly, making the job seem more tedious.
Pros
vacation days as soon as you start
Cons
no 401k

Good Product/Bad Management
Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NEJanuary 16, 2017
They have developed a great product but their management is terrible. They never listen to any of their employees when feedback is provided. When you do try and provide feedback they label you a complainer. Listed to your employees to avoid losing some great talent like you constantly are.
Pros
Great co-workers
Cons
bad management, very outdated policies

Stressful working environment with little leadership but high rewards
Regional Sales Representative (Current Employee) –  Lincoln, NEMarch 22, 2016
Travelled 60-70 days a year visiting current customers and locating new leads. Working with both print and web medium. Management provides little guidance besides negative reinforcement. The hardest part is the initial sale, after that it was good repeat business. It was also very difficult to get payment from customers and if they went bad debt that comes out of my pocket.
Pros
Potential high pay
Cons
High stress and travel
