Good coworkers, team environment. Edwin will always have your back. He'll be out in the snow with you, he'll help you cultivate your pitch. He's here for the cause.Cons
Let's be real--street canvassing is dead in NYC. It's no longer viable. And yes, DD is one of the best. Their standards are achievable (given the conditions) but in the winter it's unrealistic. You will get cited if you're close to earning personal days or unemployment. They will build you up just to knock you down. Given who your team leader is, this could be the best or worst job.
Bottom line, YOU WILL EARN MINIMUM WAGE. And you will not be paid for the full hours you work. You will be paid for 35 hrs/week, and unless you sign well above minimum standards, you won't be able to afford living. Even if you work six days/week, they find a way to avoid paying you overtime. Get an employee manual. Some team leaders will try to cheat you from your breaks on an emotional level. Saturdays, they'll ask you to work normal 9:30-6:30 hours and only pay you for five. MAKE SURE YOU GET AN UP TO DATE EMPLOYEE HANDBOOK.
They will expect this job to be your life.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Pay your workers more. Invest in your workers more. I know you're keeping the turnover high to keep the cost low, but that doesn't work in the long run for the charity. I never knowingly took a one-time donation. Others did just to keep their numbers up. Look at the debit rates, charity complaints, and act accordingly.Doesn't RecommendNegative OutlookDisapproves of CEO
