    You will work with some of the hardest working people. A lot of the volunteers are fabulous and care deeply about the cause.


    Unqualified people are promoted to supervisory positions. There's a lot of talk about identifying leadership potential but the bottom line is the bottom line. If a person is successful or lucky in increasing sponsorship or private donors, it doesn't matter if the person displays a nasty attitude, huge ego, Mean Girls persona or is inarticulate (I've had several bosses with all these traits). The AHA talks a good talk but executive leadership puts on the pressure and it's an "at all costs to hit goal" environment. There is also a lot of distrust. MANY meetings-staff, department and 1x1. There are also a myriad of daily and weekly reports. All of this is time consuming and you are tasked with finding the time to also do your job. When you voice your concern that it's too much, you will be patronizing told that it's simple to do, you just need to manage your schedule better. It's irrational the expectations managers place On their staff but heave help you if you push back. You'll be out on their radar as someone who can't manage time wisely and raw also lazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I give up. Management is told over and over again to change its ways but to no avail. So just be honest with applicants and state that this a sales position that happens to be with a non priority. Be honest and applicants won't be disappointed.
