    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Home Fundraising.

    Interview

    Come into an office and take your seat. You fill out a little form with general details and a couple of silly questions like ''who would play you in a movie?'' Two tasks one is the typical introduce/sell your partner, the other is to introduce a problem and solve it. Basically show tonnes of confidence and be smiley. The people there (interviewers) are all practically on happy juice and ecstatic to work there so show the same sentiments.

    Interview Questions

    • Think of your own problem and how you'd solve it. Very vague q, didn't say HOW big/small the problem would be.   Answer Question

    Charity Fundraiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bristol, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Home Fundraising (Bristol, England (UK)) in August 2014.

    Interview

    You get a call the day after applying. They ask you to come in and the "interview" is a two day training course with a pitch test. I have not known anybody to fail the pitch test even though they do not know the pitch. After the second day of training you go to an area and knock doors with a team leader. You will not be expected to do this yourself until after the first break. Most team leaders are nice and will be as helpful as they can.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Home Fundraising.

    Interview

    Interviews were held in one large room with about 25 other people and a task was given in order to ascertain our speaking abilites, wasnt really hard to get through the first task, only people who failed were those who were just flat out rude and didnt deserve a job anywhere

    Interview Questions

    • Most difficult stage overall (relatively) in the interviews for the job was when you were given a set of lines and you were told to pitch in front of current staff. Some people were given second chances at this stage at most people tended to be affected by nerves for some reason but yet again as long as you take a deep breath this stage too, was also easy.   Answer Question

    Charity Fundraiser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Glasgow, Scotland (UK)

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Home Fundraising (Glasgow, Scotland (UK)) in April 2014.

    Interview

    3 days, 1 day interview with everyone in the room pretty easy, usually most people pass this. Aer 2 days unpaid training with toothless!!!! people...I don't know before she could give ow these people can be employed in the first place.. every second word they say is either 'in it, man?' or 'you know what I mean, man?'.... Literally every second thing they say... they give you a text to study and you have to give it back exactly like it's written... they teach you how to get money from unemployed, students, or those who don't want to give you there bank details.. this is NOT ethical. Asking a mother to give money to a charity before she could give food to her children is disgusting... ripping off people - huge bonuses, weekly social for hundreds of people and paying for their drinks... They should rethink what a charity should be about. When I asked the guy who was leading the training, has anyone ever rejected a bonus, he was absolutely terrified and started shouting at me, screaming 'thats impossible man'... After this I don't think this company is ethical, it seems like everyone who works there is greedy without any conscience..I wouldn't want to work for them EVER.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Home Fundraising (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Group interview. About two hours long, but you only speak for about five minutes in total, so most of day listening to other candidates talking. Everyone gets offered the job at this stage, as the nest step is "training" which last for 2 days (unpaid) after which you will have to demonstrate your sales pitch. Unless you are terrible you will get the job. After this stage you hit the ground running, with weekly targets to meet. If you do not hit your target after two weeks you will be sacked. Basically they throw a lot of mud at the wall and see what sticks.
