    I have been working at Home Fundraising full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good fun Make friends Make money Save lives Get promoted I made $450 in a week and you can do team leading like myself and get payed £10+ but you have to have you're whits about you, all i can say is don't do anything dodgey and you wont get the sack.

    Cons

    Sometimes you question if whether what you are doing is right, for instance the company itself will take the first 12 months of monthly donations bare in mind that less than 30% of donors actually give for more than 12 months, some days the managers can make you feel like you're walking on egg shells. Say goodbye to you're social life the only kind of social life you're going to get is the occasional pint with the guys in a pub on the friday night and chances are you're going to be working Saturday just to boost you're wages especially if you're on bonus scheme, which i will explain: Bonus: Basically in order for you to be entitled to bonus pay you're expected to meet the following requirements: If you work full time you must get 7 sign ups everything after is worth £30. If any of you're donors cancel within the 2 weeks before you're bonus pay then you will not receive bonus for the said sign up.

    I worked at Home Fundraising part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They'll employ anyone and everyone as long as they speak decent English. So if you're desperate for a job then try working here. Oh and the free pizza & cola on Wednesday morning, but that's about it.

    Cons

    I got fired for having an autistic meltdown on shift which got incorrectly labeled as "gross misconduct" after a co-worker made fun of me all throughout the shift and lied to management claiming that I swore in uniform when I never. Management took her side and not mine. I was also given constant threats of review and being fired for the 3 weeks I worked there. Their "ethical" door selling approach is absolutely unethical because you have to ask the person on the door THREE TIMES and then come up with excuses to literally persuade them to sign up on the direct debit. Twice is more than enough. I also got shafted for not being able to keep eye contact but that's down to me asperger's syndrome so they can't really have a go at me for being disabled. Oh and you also only get paid minimum wage unless you sign up loads of people but their "bonus" scheme is too good to be true.

    I worked at Home Fundraising full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Easy job to get Work with some incredible characters Paid Travel Bonus scheme

    Cons

    Ultimately a Sales Job Awful weather and horrible people at the door Paid 5 hours for a 8 hour job when factoring in how early you have to be in office and how long it takes to get home. Sign ups are part skill , part luck Teams of low performers are normally put together making it difficult to progress. Some charities are easier than others , i.e. well recognised charities like BHF or Blue cross are easier to be on.

    Pros

    Great company with great values. The Bonus Scheme is very rewarding and the people you work with are friendly.

    Cons

    Sometimes the people you speak to may be rude or offensive. You may sometimes feel that sign ups is the only thing that matters.

    I worked at Home Fundraising part-time

    Pros

    Great bonus scheme, weekly pay, rapid progression if you stay

    Cons

    Travel time is unpaid, neither is time spent at the office before a shift. A five hour shift easily turns into 8 or 9 in this regard.
