    I worked at Insight Charity Fundraising Services part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great work environment and awesome and with initial introduction and training quick to the point and very valuable.

    Cons

    The 'Team Leader' 'Manager' podium overlooking staff seems only to encourage the Team Leaders unshakeable belief of his own inflated feelings of personal ability, privilege, and infallibility. His 'one on one training sessions' is just his opportunity to ensure your submission is cemented in. If he does not approve of you - your gone! (my opinion.. get a hair cut MG!)

    Advice to Management

    If you have a dress code, enforce it - don't just tell new staff that you do as they are all sighted to date! This undermines the integrity of the company and the management.

    I worked at Insight Charity Fundraising Services full-time

    Pros

    Good pay, nice colleagues at your level.

    Cons

    You are a number not a person. If you don't make them enough money in a week, upwards of a $1000, they will sack you on the spot. Rude managers. Terrible, quick, basic training before you are thrown in at the deep end. All they care about if you making $200 sales at a time.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to train your staff better and maybe you wouldn't have to fire 3 people a day.

    Cons

    10 to 8 everyday is extremely tough hours combined that with having a strict 9 to 5 on a Saturday mean't you are drained most of the time

    I worked at Insight Charity Fundraising Services full-time

    Pros

    Base wage is ok but commissions are high if you work hard at selling ongoing entries. You need to have the gift of the gab.

    Cons

    Inflexible with working hours. Takes some time to 'unlock' the best working hours and best calling lists. Some charities are harder than others.

    Advice to Management

    Not much advice to give. Maybe work a little more on spending time with people individually as well as in teams. Spend more time on the sales floor.

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I worked at Insight Charity Fundraising Services part-time

    Pros

    Very supportive team. They will train you multiple times and develop you. Also good base rates and possibility to earn commission on top.

    Cons

    Very high call rate standards. If you don't make enough money they will send you home. Also your call rates are displayed for everyone to see in comparison with everyone else's rates.

    I have been working at Insight Charity Fundraising Services full-time

    Pros

    The pay is really good. It was around $25/hr on weekdays, $28 on Saturday. You get paid for training

    Cons

    Work hours on weekdays goes from 12pm-8pm, late getting home. Poor support network, they throw you in the deep end. High turnover rate, saw people being let go after the beginning of their second week not including their training week. Constant rejection but that's standard for telephone sales

    Advice to Management

    Lose the 'you're either really good or not good' mindset.

    decent money, hours are pretty flexible if you are placed in a good team. wonderful people to work with, sales people are very fun people.

    Cons

    There was a lot of pressure for me to hit targets. this was strange

    Advice to Management

    The disparity between teams is significant. the teams upstairs had so little pressure, whereas downstairs its a completely different game.
