    I have been working at RAINN part-time

    Pros

    I work part time on the online hotline. Scheduling is easy, and the people you work with on the hotline are so dedicated. It's a team effort and everyone is there to support each other.

    Cons

    Sometimes shifts are understaffed which can lead to a very stressful night.

    I worked at RAINN part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Helping others. That's about it.

    Cons

    Management is straight crap. They have no real management experience. They expect a high turnover rate, which there is, so they treat employees as disposable/replaceable. If you work overnight just know you will be forgotten and not cared for. Management tells you they care about you but they never show it. Management shows A LOT of favoritism. They increase your workload the longer you work there and do not give you any sort of compensation for it. Expect to be ignored by administrative staff. They make sweeping structural changes in secret and expect staff to adjust in a moments notice.

    Advice to Management

    This is a high stress level job. Show how you say you care about employees through action. Stop with the favoritism. Offer some sort of compensation for good work; it doesn't have to be a raise.

    Pros

    Your schedule is flexible and you are able to work from home. Above all, you are helping people directly. Training is compensated.

    Cons

    The job can be stressful and require working late at night.

    Pros

    Work remotely, making a direct difference in people's lives, very flexible with schedules.

    Cons

    I'm a student and able to work there only because I have Federal Work Study instead of having a general open pool to college students.

    I worked at RAINN part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are so many great people that work on the hotline, their dedication is inspiring, also you do get the chance to help people who really need it directly.

    Cons

    Management is pretty awful, they say one thing and then do another, they treat people as if they are disposable/replaceable and only their to serve the needs of management. Hard work, and good reviews are not rewarded and their is no praise for the people who work tirelessly to serve victims in need. Management plays favorites and gives perks and promotions to the favored few who really are not good at their jobs and who just put in the bare minimum (read those who are married to management or friends of management)

    Advice to Management

    Treat staff members like they mater and that they exist. Do not overwork staff to the point of burn-out. A little kindness can go a long way. Just act like decent humans.

    Pros

    It was a very gratifying job and there was a lot of support provided by the RAINN headquarters team.

    Cons

    No direct or personal contact with the people working with you. Could not get recommendations or much from a business end because it was anonymous.

    Pros

    Gain experience in the social work field or in victim advocacy. Other hotline staff are incredibly supportive and passionate. The hotline provides great services for survivors, but overall RAINN is a terrible place to work.

    Cons

    Huge divide between hotline staff and the rest of the office staff. The office staff ignores the hotline staff and pretends like they do not exist. Upper management is clueless about the goings on of the hotline and make large, sweeping changes to hotline staffing structure without consulting hotline staff, which results in ineffective and detrimental changes. Large amount of nepotism and favoritism between hotline manager, assistant manager, and some staff. Hotline staff is generally unappreciated by the management and other staff. Staffers skills and interests are not utilized.
