Welcome to Southwestern Advantage Reviews

This site shares reviews from current and former student reps, and even their parents, about their experience with the Southwestern Advantage Sales & Leadership Program – the top rated internship in the US. We pride ourselves on being the oldest, most challenging, and most rewarding entrepreneurial program in the world for university students and recent grads. Our company is over 160 years old (est. 1855), and we are the founding company of what is now Southwestern Family of Companies. We have been repeatedly named “Best in Business” by Nashville Business Journal, a Top Workplace by The Tennessean, and we maintain an A+ Rating with the Better Business Bureau.

We are proud of our rankings and recognition, however, the personal stories are far more powerful. At the top of this page you’ll find links to stories of overcoming fears and challenges in order to experience the rewards of our program – all told by students and their parents.

Please visit the Southwestern Advantage Reviews Facebook page for the most up to date reviews from educators, customers, students and more.
