    Pros

    Great part-time job for students.
    Learned a lot about communication and can give you skills for a future job in sales or similar fields.
    Raises based on just showing up and doing your job, you are not expected to be the best as long as you are not the worst.

    Cons

    Essentially cold calling alumni
    Lots of inactivity, people rarely pick up the phone
    When people do pick up the phone, most of the time they are hostile or do not want to talk with you at all.
    Forced to ask for donations at least 4 times during the call, even if the person does not have the financial means to make a donation, or if they say they do not want to donate from the beginning of the call.
    Must be alright with demeaning work.

    Advice to Management

    Have a heart

    Pros

    challenging tasks, deal with lots of rejections and improve your communication skills. Sometimes you do hear useful advice from Alumni and interesting stories from potential clients.

    Cons

    Depends on your manager. If you are in a profit driven team (the environment is basically determined by the manager and supervisors), then you may feel like this job doesn't care about clients (honestly, what else can we bring besides asking for donation), those so call relationship building strategies seem to be fake. However, you can still choose to spend more time talking to individual Alumni to pass out some of the positiveness


  9. "Student Caller"

    I worked at Ruffalocody, Llc part-time

    Pros

    The hours were very flexible and the management was always there and allowed suggestions. They treated their employees as equals.

    Cons

    The hours were inconvenient but were targeted for college students. The job was repetitive and you are not treated well by people you contact.

    Advice to Management

    The job was a lot of fun and is perfect for college students. The pay was very fair and the job was manageable.

    Pros

    Very flexible hours, played games and contests to pass time during shifts. Great part time job for students.

    Cons

    Sometimes the fundraising goals were a little too high to achieve. Can be overwhelming and noisy in the call center at times during shifts.

    Advice to Management

    More training on software and in fundraising in general could be helpful. More insight into the unique alumni population of a given university could be helpful too.
