Not everyone is cut out for retail. definite sales position must be able to engage customers and be a self starter. Don't expect someone to show you how to do the things you probably said you could do during the interview. Profits go to fund missions. Thousands of World V. kids have been saved by sponsors thru FCS. Co. gives customers $20 to sponsor. WV was going under until FCS started advertising for them. It didn't bother you to get paid to work there. Pastors get paid to preach on Sun. too. It is a dream job for someone who wants to do missions, but needs a paycheck. If you don't like this job, you will not like any retail job. By the way, no one seems to care if other stores make a profit or what they do with their profits. I have been with them for 3 years and love it.
Abused – November 14, 2012
What this former employee said is all true. This company treats employees horrible, and uses scripture to abuse them and threaten them. They tell you that if you don't hit your WV quota, then you are sinning against God. This is nuts. World Vision PAYS Family Christian to promote them...millions of dollars that customers have donated to WV goes back to Family Christian. Yes it is true that Family Christian profits go to support ministry, but it's their own foundation, The James Fund....and the percent that goes to them is very very small! So many good employees have been fired because they didn't get enough WV kids sponsored, and that is wrong. They will deny this is happening, but I know the truth, and so do so many others! The abuse doesn't stop with World Vision either...I could go on. It is very sad what this company has become!
