    Public Fundraiser Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Public Outreach Fundraising (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I was recruited off of the street, a young man took my information, and the recruiters call me about four days later to set up an interview. I was told that casual dress was fine. It was supposed to be a group interview, but I was the only one who showed; so it was done one-on-one with the HR person. I was called about an hour later to start an evaluation period the following Monday. The first day, there is a training meeting. At that meeting you find out what organization you will fund raising for and will get a script to memorize. Once the script is memorized (hopefully by the next day) you have to recite it to your supervisor before they will let you public fund raise on the street. You have four days to sign up monthly donors in an evaluation period to be hired or "staff." If you don't accomplish that you might be given more time to "staff."

    Interview Questions

    • Before you get interviewed, you fill out an application. A couple of questions on the ap were "Why should we hire you?," "Why do you want to work for the company, and "Are there any organizations you would feel uncomfortable fundraising for."   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Public Outreach Fundraising.

    Interview

    I applied online and went through an initial phone interview, with basic questions on my skills, personality, and the organization.

    I was then invited to a group interview with 2 team leaders in Toronto, which was very informal with role playing, group games and personality tests. We even had a “dry test” of face-to-face fundraising by interacting with people on the streets outside the office and trying to get answers to simple questions.

    After that, I had a one-on-one with a team leader for two-way feedback and was eventually offered a position with an on-the-job training starting the very next day.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Public Outreach Fundraising (Calgary, AB (Canada)).

    Interview

    Got a call for the interview after two days of application. Weird Group interview setting with a group of different people which I did not like. They set unrealistic targets to be achieved every week and you get kicked off if you don't achieve targets without remorse. They told me they kicked off a guy who worked for three years after he could not achieve target on few occasion.
