CLS and Save-A-Lot are looking for a team of two paid interns to hit the road at the end of July as part of our annual Fuel Your Family Road Trip program. The selected team will serve as brand ambassadors — or Road Scholars, as we call them — on a four-week, 12-city tour of some great U.S. states.
As the 2012 Fuel Your Family Road Scholars, you and your friend will have a chance to personally bring the brand to consumers and help show people how Save-A-Lot can help fuel families with fresh, quality food and simple meal ideas at substantial savings.
Throughout your four-week road trip you will attend community events, conduct random acts of kindness and sampling, host customer appreciation events at Save-A-Lot stores and share tips for affordable, easy road trip snacks and breakfast and lunch ideas.
The actual internship will last for six weeks from July 23 to August 31, 2012. The selected Road Scholars will receive a weekly salary, a per diem, lodging, provided transportation and invaluable job experience.
The selected team of Road Scholars will need to commit to the six week internship (again – July 23 to August 31, 2012). The first week (July 23 through July 28, 2012) will be spent at Save-A-Lot University undergoing brand and Fuel Your Family program training in MInneapolis at the offices of Carmichael Lynch Spong (Save-A-Lot's PR Agency), at SUPERVALU (Save-A-Lot's parent company) and in St. Louis at Save-A-Lot headquarters. The four-week summer road trip will run from July 29 to August 26, 2012. You'll also spend one week (August 27 through August 31, 2012) in Minneapolis at the end of the trip sending out final blog posts, preparing a recap and completing a measurement and evaluation report.
