It's Okay - Barely - For This Type of Work

Professional Fundraiser (Current Employee) Springfield, MO

ProsPays a little better than many call centers.

They allow some flexibility in scheduling.

ConsA LOT of turnover. You know there's something wrong with a place when they start new employee training classes every week or two, and there's still plenty of cubicles left for them to use.

PETTY employee policies. Examples include a point system for disciplinary purposes ("offenses" can include taking too long in the restroom); changing your pay rate to the minimum-wage level for the morning pep talk, coaching and review sessions, and your 10-minute break; and now having to check your messages, schedule makeup time (if needed), etc. BEFORE you can clock in. I think that also may be illegal under wage and hour statutes.

Only the select few get to advance. And we recently found out that new hires (yes, LESS experience people) are making $2 more per hour than those of us who are veterans.

Advice to Senior ManagementPay the same rate for all work-related activities. Make the benefits better. And work at making people better even more than you do now.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
