    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 Management

    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."

    Pros

    DialogueDirect has a fantastic team atmosphere working for an amazing charity, Children International. On top of that, the pay and benefits are great, provided that you work hard and maintain a great attitude. It is great feeling that you have a family across the country that all have the same goal in mind, and that there is a great deal of travel opportunity.

    Cons

    It can be stressful dealing with the public at times, especially when it's cold outside!
