Rewarding because you get to fundraise for a good cause and share facts and knowledge to those who aren't aware of some the things going around the world. You can meet people who are really cool just by yelling something at a stranger.
You have to canvass and persuade to strangers to pledge money to sponsor a child on the streets. Many people who stop either have something they're donating to already, will want to think about it, or hestitant about giving you card info even though you know you know you're working for a good cause, it can be discouraging and frustrating when people turn you down.
Advice to Management
Management is relaxed and casual. You can really go to them about anything.

- No OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 days – interviewed at Developing Awareness (San Diego, CA) in January 2015.
The interviiew process was stressless and very kick back. You are asked to dress casual, and they are very nice.There was an orientation going on so I just waited for my turn and then went into the interview office.A very nice young man came in and asked some generic questions. All were easy to understand. It is (well it always is) good to do research about their organization (Developing Awareness, not Please help the Children) that you will be directly working for. He asked me what days I could work, (you get to pick out your own schedule) The interview went well, and it sounded like I "landed" the job, until the time came when he said he would call me if I got the job and I waited and I waited and never received a phone call. They hire you that fast. You would then come to work for the next 3 or so days for your paid training process @ $10.00 per hour, and if you can get 3 people to sign up wiithin a 3 day time span you pass until your next quota is met. Supposedly they effectivvely train you on how to get people to sign up because they say if you listen and follow directions you should have no problems in signing up 3 people in 3 days. In fact if you are able to sign up 3 people on the first day, you advance next to $13.00 an hour instead of just $12.00. There is also growth within the company, they are starting up more offices in other Cities. But....I will never know, as I did not get piicked to start their 3 day training course....
- There wasn't any difficult questions really, bringing up that I had a felony wasn't too comfortable. I was only a DUI Felony, but still a felony. He was. again, very kind, asked how long ago it was and if I had gotten everything taken care of, and asked if I were on probation, and said that they would have not problems on the days that I had to meet with my probation officer. So once again, the hardest part of the interview for me was that issue and it flowed like honey, but perhaps not really, as I never received that "Your Hired" phone call at 5/6 O'Clock like they said I would get if chosen. : (ffff Answer Question
