I have been working at Telefund part-time (less than an year)Pros
You can do the job high/ drunk/ bipolar or dressed like a serial killer or prostitute and not get in trouble. There aren't any other pros but this text box has a 20 word minimum.Cons
On my first day of training (called a working interview so they don't have to pay you) I got a $500 donation and a $50 dollar donation in the first hour of and was yelled at and told that I screwed it up and didn't squeeze the donor hard enough to fork over more cash. (I was the only person in training who got a cent donated that day and I got a larger donation than any of the paid staff.)
They demand you do "homework" as they refer to it. They tell you to practice arguing with people about donating using your family as practice and read over pamphlets by their organization or you "wont be successful" (IE you'll be fired for not doing unpaid work outside of work hours.)
It is a boiler room operation that alienates any potential donors or members. the most common phrase I heard was " I will never donate to _________ again because I keep receiving all these awful calls"
They keep a do not call list but don't implement it and let their low level employees bear the abuse form people who receive calls day after day despite requests to be removed.
The owner of the company is a multi-millionaire who owns multiple homes and yachts and is no better than a Koch brother.
Telefund profiteers from the poor weak and down trodden with few other options. Please NEVER put your phone number on a donation and let organizations that call you through Telefund know that you won't donate because you don't support them using a company with such immorality and lack of integrity.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Stop lying to your self and employees that your doing a good thing for the world and accept that you're poverty pimps.Doesn't RecommendNegative Outlook
