Casual, goal-oriented with friendly co-workers
Student Telephone Caller (Former Employee), Kitchener, ONFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: fun, well managed, flexibility, good pay
Cons: had a lower-end job, lots of work
A typical night at work would be after class around 5:30-9:00. Mostly self-managed, and driven towards a goal (successful donations, how many, how much)

Co-workers were all students and very friendly, and my supervisor was awesome to work for. She really encouraged you to have a fun time when things got a little stressful.

Hardest part was getting a successful donation around Christmas, the most enjoyable part was communicating with alumni about their experiences and building a relationship.
