    I have been working at Integral Resources part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great place for anyone looking for either a part time or full time job. The schedule is very flexible as they allow you to pick the days you want to work and choose between days and nights. They believe in giving anyone a chance and everyone starts out equally. The management and supervisors are there to help anyone who wants the help.

    Cons

    Some employees are young and this is there first office job so they can be immature at times, however, management has been working hard training and educating them on proper work etiquette.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and continue in the positive direction to make this one of the best companies to work for!

    I have been working at Integral Resources full-time

    Pros

    Very informational about the job, and explained in detail how the pay is and how to make extra cash.

    Cons

    The only con is I feel they should do the interviews in more of a private part to not bother the callers, and to help the interviewer be more focus.

  3. "Fair"

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule, gaining infinite amount of knowledge regarding Democratic progressives, get a feel for how the world feels about politics, & inevitably become clearer on your stance as well

    Cons

    (At least at my location) no direct deposit that is small but a bit irritating

    Pros

    Great employees
    Flexibility
    Connecting with amazing people across the country

    Cons

    Being sent home for not getting "toast" (donations)
    Poor management skills or lack thereoff
    Pay was always questionable

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice
     The v.p is phony , he doesnt look his employees in the face . his handshake is weak. Hes a snake in the grass. He came up to the office in december flew his private jet and told us all we are the best in the company, we're stronger than ever . he just signed a 5 year lease. Then all of a. Sudden. On march 6 2019 he again flew up to tell us mid shift that he had to close our office dye to monetary issues . he coukdnt afford us. This fake spiel about how terrible he felt. He said you all qualify for unemployment. He knew what he was doing. He also never hired anyone as fulltime not even supervisors. He collects tax breaks for employing the disabled, veterans, recovering addicts..just about anyone. The problem is that he misleads you and tries to make you buy his bologna. Only 20% if that goes to the campaigns we call for. In worcesters last months we called mainly (IRI created rresolicitation) calls. Forced to call people constantly or threatened we would be sent home. We were written up for being too nice. Forced to believe that donors were lying if they couldnt or wouldnt give. Tell me how is that behavior democratic? You are a wolf in sheeps clothing. Boycott Iri

    I worked at Integral Resources part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It was great being able to talk to people all over the country about current events. Flexibility was awesome.

    Cons

    Lack of communication. Employees in the entire Worcester, MA center were laid off in the middle of shift with no warning, including to the management.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate. Be open and honest with employees who rely on their jobs to survive.

    Yes we are very sorry we had to close Worcester's doors after 8 years. The center was down to 6 agents who worked over 20 hours a week average and we were relying on very part time employee's. Costs... More

  8. "Company values employees and offers flexible scheduling"

    Pros

    Fun work atmosphere. Great way to stay up to date with political issues. Supervisors are committed to helping employees grow, frequently offering training and feedback to help us improve. So long as effort is made, employees are well valued.

    Very flexible scheduling, ways to earn bonuses are made very transparent. Promotions and briefings on current events keep the workplace engaging.

    Cons

    Calls are not always pleasant, as with any fundraising work.

    Actually appreciate what your employers do for the bare minimum wage you pay them

    I worked at Integral Resources part-time

    Pros

    Good clients. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    IRI is a fundraising company working for progressive Democratic and charitable causes. As most know, the Democratic party is pushing for the $15 minimum wage. So now, with a $1.00 increase coming in the minimum wage for 2019 in Massachusetts, IRI has decided to adjust their pay structure to ensure that their employees (phone operatives making contact with potential donors) will make LESS in 2019 than they are making now, before the minimum wage increase! How? They are DISAPPEARING the "Pay Pool," which earns their employees an increased hourly wage based on the dollars per hour he/she raised for the client organization. The loss of this will more than wipe out the $1.00 minimum wage increase they are forced to accept and pay. Imagine that: a company working for liberal causes decreasing their employees' take home pay when their state's minimum wage goes up! This adds insult to injury.

     IRI is being mean-spirited and anti-Democratic even as they push their employees to work for Democratic organizations that are committed to helping middle-class and working Americans earn enough in an ever-increasing cost-of-living world. Yes, hypocrisy abounds here

    Oh...there was also the time they bribed their employees with a $5.00 lottery scratch off card if they wrote a favorable review on Glassdoor. Disturbing.

    Advice to Management

    Just don't.

    Very sorry you feel this way. Our base wage will INCREASE in Massachusetts December 1st from $11.00 plus bonus to $12.40 plus bonus.
