I worked at Public Outreach Fundraising part-time
excellent trainings, much more fair and consistent base salary structure than most canvassing jobs, flexible schedule, good contracts, good hiring and onboarding process, fair promotions, lots of offices in several countries, plenty of freedom to adopt a canvassing style that works for you and maximizes your performance
benefits are slow to kick in compared to some other canvassing firms, the usual amount of high turnover and disorganization for this industry, bonus incentives change frequently, difficulty finding and retaining drivers, outdated technology
Advice to Management
I enjoyed my work at PO enormously! My coworkers were great, the work was rewarding, and I just plain love canvassing. Advocating for more incentives for drivers (a small bonus in addition to the mileage reimbursement?) and better technology would be helpful. I also hope PO is able to expand into more markets!
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Public Outreach Fundraising (Boston, MA) in August 2017.
Group interview, didn't seem planned well. A question is asked and whoever answers answers. It seemed disorganized and nothing like an interview I've been to before. I think it's better to take people one by one.
