    I worked at Fundraising Initiatives full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Try to motivate you each day
    Flexibility with regard to scheduling
    Decent benefits, medical, dental and vision
    Opportunity to network

    Cons

    Lowsy payrate
    Unrealistic expectations, the numbers they want you to hit are unrealistic when it comes down to it.
    The fact that you are canvassing is seen by some people as not worth the time to speak with you, i.e. they get exceedingly rude.
    There are always errors with your paycheck, they keep looking for ways not to pay you what they should.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fundraising Initiatives.

    Interview

    Short interview. Answered basic questions. Pretty much if you have a pulse and can carry on a conversation for 5 minutes they will hire you. Had a pre interview phone screen. Then had an interview with the human resources lady. I had applied for the Team Lead position and even though I met those qualifications I was not offered that position but another one with less pay.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    None. take it or leave it.
