Yep, I pretty much had the same experience. I have been tempted to alert HR but what's the use? It's corporate culture. Most of the girls in our office were prescribed some sort of anxiety medication because of this job.

I do understand that MANY companies are understaffed and we ALL have to do more with less. However, perhaps it is more than the chaos in any given office. I have been there... and I know it all comes down to ATTITUDE< TEAMWORK < and PERSPECTIVE!

Hello! I was reading reviews on the MDA and came across this one and was frightened by your comments. Is the manager still there? I would like a little more insight if you do not mind.

I wasted my time interviewing for a position with MDA and it was more than awful. With over 25 years in a variety of initiatives I was hammered with stupid questions in a format of interviewing called "Behavioral" Oh my god it was a joke and the ED was all of 30 if that....her sidekick was grossly overweight and rude. The VP of something or other skyped in from Georgia...huh? We are talking like 40 grand here...she was badgering me too with inane questions...the other two in front of me giggled and rolled their eyes...totally unprofessional and I told them all off...got up and left...the front desk staff is bad too...I see they still are looking for a coordinator...STAY AWAY....They have a horrible rep in W. Michigan....

I also was a former employee and completely agree with the statement above. I worked for them for about four years and could not believe how many employees were fired as upper management would blame the fundraisers for their very high goals. The typical fundraiser and health care service coordinator (even worse!) was lasted about a year, if that. Although I did well, the atmosphere was very unhealthy but I became attached to the kids and families, thus I stayed until I had a wake up call so to speak. I also agree MDA is very deceptive when it comes to where their fundraising dollars go. Their camps and services to the families are very minimal and most gave because they thought that is where the money went. This is false. They would find a "cute" boy or girl with muscular dystrophy to be one of their good will ambassadors and bring them along to potential and current sponsors as well as to fundraising events. After the child wasn't "cute" anymore as they aged, they were dropped. The telethon: Most think the money raised during the telethon is from that event only, which is false. There are people who call in to donate but the majority is accumulative funds raised throughout the year. To recap: I've worked for other non-profit fundraising organizations and this one is bad news.
