It's time to move on.
Fundraiser (Current Employee), Los Angeles, CAFebruary 26, 2014
Pros: flexibility
Cons: salary
A typical day at work consists of waiting for the dialer to forward the next donor to you, cultivating calls while asking for donations, taking scheduled breaks, and socializing with co-workers and supervisors.

I have to sit out blocks because I don't work on certain campaigns. Since this year began, every pay check has decreased by a substantial amount – more... to the point whereas I don't have enough to live on. That's why I'm seeking employment elsewhere. When I come into work prepared to start my shift from 1:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. and I'm asked to leave at 1:31 p.m. and return at 6:00 p.m. for just 2 1/2 hours and it becomes a habit with the supervisors, it's time to go. I don't have time to waste. Life is too short.

The most enjoyable part of the job is speaking with donors. I've learned a lot about the organizations that people care about and put their money into to improve the quality of life. – less

Good for very short term, but not a career
Classic Telefundraiser (Former Employee), Hollywood, CAJanuary 2, 2014
Pros: they'll hire just about anyone, supervisors are friendly
Cons: short breaks, high stress, guilt
This is a decent part-time job, but I wouldn't recommend spending more than a month with them. The pay is minimal, the stress load is unbelievable, and it's difficult to work more than 30 hours per week due to both stress and their bizarre shift structure. Weekends are required as well. And as much as they say "no cold calling", there's a decent amount – more... of cold calls in their files. – less

Raised funds via telephone for various nonprofit organizations
TELEFUNDRAISER (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAJune 15, 2012
A fast paced, highly competitive environment, Donor Services Group was a telefundraising organization that called many members of various organizations to gather pledges to help them operate. The environment was stressful, as coworkers were often fired or sent home early in their shifts for not making their quotas. Management was helpful and friendly, – more... but could turn sour very quickly. – less
