Productive
Recruitment Coordinator (Former Employee), Brookfield, WIMarch 16, 2015
Pros: hour break for lunch, consistent yet flexible hours and income, friendly
Cons: temp position
Every day was very similar. Morning meeting, conduct fundraising duties, lunch, afternoon prep, continue work, end of day review.

My phone and paperwork processing skills definitely grew in this position. I have also improved upon my organization, scheduling, and time management.

All my co-workers were very friendly!

The most difficult part of the job is persuading the potential business executive to commit their time to participate in the fundraiser.

The most enjoyable part of the job was it's consistency.

Very stressful job.
Volunteer Recruitment Coordinator (Former Employee), Champaign, ILFebruary 16, 2015
These are all temporary positions. Lot of pushing for numbers, but no real guidance in how to achieve the numbers. Most people lasted less than 3 months, They would hire 7-8 people and then weed them out to 2 or 3 and those did not last.

Regional Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Fort Myers, FLDecember 16, 2014
Non-profits are companies who are working hard to make a difference in someone else's life. I was lucky enough to be a part of this team for over 2 years and see the difference in every family, child, and adult through the many programs they offer.

Intern (Former Employee), Charlotte, NCDecember 12, 2014
Pros: pot lucks, aren't too strict time wise
Cons: numbers based, have to be a pushy sometimes
Being an intern, I wasn't exposed to the full description of the fundraiser coordinator job. But, the people who work there are nice and will help you whenever you need it. I enjoyed going to the different fundraiser events they had and all the planning that went into it.

Amazing Team!
Customer Service (Former Employee), Ashland City, TNNovember 29, 2014
I was in the troubleshooting department here, or in other words Call Center. I loved the friendly atmosphere, always very understanding and family oriented. I ended up leaving because I moved so far away.

Great place to volunteer
Volunteer services (Current Employee), Baltimore, MDOctober 25, 2014
Wonderful experience with the same patient over the years. watched his disease progress, and saw how his parents really devoted their time to him which was amazing to see how much work they did for their son. Life changing, and if you have an opportunity as a nurse to take on a high needs child, its very rewarding.

Poor management, Need an olderand more mature manager
Recruit coordinator (Current Employee), Flowood, MSSeptember 30, 2014
Pros: long break
Cons: staff very unfriendly, not enough hous
The Flowood location is managed poorly. All the managers did was sit around and play all day and expect you to do all the work. Sometimes they would come in and not speak to the recruit coordinators like we were beneath them

Dedicated environment to service patients
Regional Sales Services Coordinator (Former Employee), New York, NYSeptember 12, 2014
It was extraordinary the amount of dedication each employee gave to the company in order to service the patients with muscular dystrophy. It is a strongly service-oriented company that secures the donations to be efficiently supporting the services they provide at their clinics and for research. The fundraising events are fun and creative.

Volunteer Recruitment Coordinator (Former Employee), Flowood, MSSeptember 12, 2014
Cons: short lunch
The people in charge are very unprofessional and do not meet their goals but instead chat and play all day. They come down hard on VRC to meet the goal even though they do not get much accomplished. Look down on VRC position.

High Energy Environment
Area Director (Current Employee), Kansas City, MOSeptember 8, 2014
A great deal of account care and cold calling to develop revenue streams for specific events in order to meet goals. Training as you go--you don't know what you don't know. The hardest part of the job is not committing accounts to participation; its motivating accounts to meet the goals they set. The most enjoyable part of the job is the contact with the families served.

Working both directly with the stricken children and fund raising.
Volunter (Former Employee), Columbus, OhioSeptember 1, 2014
Pros: helping to give stricken children some much needed friendship.
Cons: seeing the debilitation of so many beautiful children when so young.
In fighting MS there is no such thing as a typical day. Each day gives you new challenges and new opportunities to enrich the lives of these children. Everyone that I have worked with have the same objective as myself. To make each day a good day and to find a common ground with which to put a smile on a childs face. The hardest part I have found to be, is to keep a positive attitude and never let your emotions show, while knowing that each child is not going to get better and will in the end be taken from us at such an early age.

I loved working there and I had a blast when I got to meet Bella
I would love to work for them again. They are all great people and they work not for themselves but to help others and that's what makes them so amazing they are not co-workers they are a family.
