    I have been working at Donorworx (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Getting to work with a group of world changers and passionate individuals!! I love meeting people and talking, so fundraising is perfect for my personality. You have the opportunity to be yourself, and end up having complete strangers share incredibly moving and inspiring stories that remind you of the good in humanity

    Cons

    This is not an easy job. You have to be ready to work hard at every shift. But you will sleep well at night knowing you have made a difference!

    I have been working at Donorworx full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Donorworx will surprise you in the best ways! When I first saw the ad to work as a fundraiser, I skipped right over it because I never imagined this could be something I'd want to.
    One chance face to face meeting with a donorworx employee changed my perspective completely. I jumped on board and have never regretted it! Donorworx is a place where you can live out your passion to transform lives and impact real change across the world. Best of all, you get to do it with like-minded people who share your vision and are determined to be their best and do their best for whatever cause they're representing. Donorworx is a friendly, supportive & innovative place to work. Your thoughts, feelings, successes & struggles matter here; donorworx really is a family.
    Professionally speaking, donorworx partners with some of the best respected charities around, because they are committed to ethical partnerships. As a fundraiser, donorworx leaders and management will actively support you in your growth and development. Because of this, you'll have many quick opportunities for promotions and advancements, particularly if you're able to travel. It's pretty lucky to have the opportunity to travel around the country as an advocate for kids.
    A positive outlook and determination are keys to success with this company. If you have those and a passion to change the world, this is the right place for you!

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is the rejection you face while fundraising. Some days, it will astonish you how little people seem to care. Luckily, donorworx understands that struggle and is supportive and encouraging during those hard moments.

    The short term contract nature of many campaigns can also be a challenge if you're looking for long-term work, but since there are always opportunities for advancement, even a short term campaign can lead to a career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep going!

    I have been working at Donorworx part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    There is nothing as awesome as knowing that you are making a huge difference in people's lives around the world! At donorworx, you KNOW that you have the best job at the mall you end up working at, and the only job that is making the world a better place! Add to that that I was promoted twice in one month. That's never happened to me or any one I know. And the pay is very reasonable! They even have opportunities to travel! The best part is knowing that you are making a lifetime difference for children around the world who without us would not get sponsored otherwise. And to see just how happy people that end up sponsoring at the mall booths is just a priceless experience. I have actually put some other life plans on hold so I can do this job...it is THAT rewarding!!!!!

    Cons

    Be prepared to stand almost non-stop for at least 5 hours, face rejection constantly, and talk for 5 to 30 minutes at a time with absolute strangers so they can end up making a set monthly donation for years to come! It is contractual which lasts about every three months or so although these contracts tend to keep rolling. It is by no means easy, and compared to what I have seen with other vendors at the mall, fundraising is way way way more difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    NEVER GIVE UP AND KEEP BELIEVING IN US!

    Pros

    You are helping a great cause. You will leave most days feeling good. You will meet some magical people, who sponsor children. You are paid very well, which is a major plus as well.

    Cons

    I unfortunately worked at a mall, where our campaign was very disorganized. We had two CL's who did not get along. There was always tension. I felt I was not trained well enough to handle the awkwardness of approaching people. I was not given tools to succeed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire CL's (campaign leaders) not only based on sponsorships but their overall review from co-workers. Mine acted very immature & catty, which made it hard to come into work and excel.
