    Fundraiser Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Home Fundraising.

    Interview

    Group interview for the first stage. Then training on a particular charity with a 1:1 to test you on the training. It's pretty easy and straightforward. It's important to just be yourself and come across as a fun person.

    Fundraiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Coventry, RI
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Home Fundraising (Coventry, RI).

    Interview

    The interview was almost too relaxed. It was a group interview where interviewees turned up in very casual clothes.
    We were not asked questions, but were given a presentation about the company and two activities.

    I passed and was put through to Initial Assessment which was from 10 to 5. We were left to ourselves in a room unsupervised for the accumulation of around 3 hours.

    The best thing about this company is the other fundraisers you will meet. In my opinion, the interview and training isn't great.

    Fundraiser Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Home Fundraising.

    Interview

    It takes 13 hours!! Something which is not made clear for you when you turn up to the first interview, which is a very informal group interview. The next 2 days are more like training with an assessment at the end, which would be very hard to fail as it's just practicing what they've already made you practice to death. Only paid for these 12 hours training if you stay for 30 shifts, which I don't believe many do,

    Interview

    I was given an interview, descriped as a student job, but they wanted me to work 3 days a week minimum travelling East Midlands while at uni, meaning I'd have to leave for the location very early. The whole process wasted around an hour and a half of my time.

    Entry Level Sales Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Home Fundraising (Sheffield, England (UK)).

    Interview

    It was more of a group presentation about the opportunity you can have where they just described what money you can earn to lock you in, and they also said they only had 2 jobs available. Which created the fear of loss for inexperienced people in this field of work. We had a few tasks, like speaking in front of the group which is easy if your a natural public speaker. Over all it was fun! I did meet great people.
