Pros: hours are 12:30-9:00, so you have time in the morning to apply for other jobs.
Cons: long hours, cult-like environment, impossible quota, very shady company
Basically your whole job is trying to guilt people into sponsoring a child. NO ONE wants to do it. Everyone hates door-to-door people. You have to guilt them into it and it feels bad even when you do make a deal. If you're the type of person who doesn't mind screwing with people, lying to them, manipulating and guilting them into buying this, then you – more... could do good at this job. You also have to manage to convince yourself that it's for a good cause. Which is hard to do if you're a skeptical person like me.
And the environment at the office is Cult-like. They all sing songs and chants, and nothing negative is ever said. If you ask any questions they will just dodge them. You have to lie to yourself and pretend you're doing actual good work. its pathetic.
It's funny, they are hiring EVERY SINGLE DAY. i only worked there for a month, and EVERY DAY i worked there were new people. Most new people lasted 1-3 days at most. They have a lady hired to just call people and set up interviews. I dunno how they are still in Ottawa, you'd think they would run out of people to hire LOL.
I only recommend taking this if you are desperate for money, they will fire you in 5 days if you don't make any deals. – less
