Develop people skills, Sales skills, meet people.

People are VERY mean to canvassers, and the job is very informal as the turnover for new hires is close to 98% in the first two weeks.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure you campaign manager is doing there job and going to see teams on site to help out.

    I worked at DialogueDirect

    Pros

    -If successful at reaching or exceeding daily quota you are generously rewarded financially or with gifts from your supervisor
    -When you do land a sponsor it is a great feeling and rewarding to think you can help a child in extreme poverty

    Cons

    -You must stand on your feet the entire 7 hour day with only 1 hour break total
    -Most people on the street are incredibly cruel and will treat you like dirt
    -You must stand outside in all types of weather

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The training period was frustrating because I did not get enough constructive feedback on how to improve my pitch. Please be direct and constructive instead of saying "I don't know what you are doing wrong."
