Bad management, depressing work, low benefits
Sales Representative (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON22 April 2019
You're hired by a certain manager for the company and work for their 'team'. With your team, you fund raise for different campaigns and companies, depending on the season.

The management is horrible. You are berated constantly if you aren't lucky enough to get a sale or donation (and it is all luck basically). You learn disgusting manipulation tactics and will be belittled for being even a minute late. It's a very depressing, toxic, and lifeless environment. I wouldn't recommend ANYONE work here, go deliver food or something instead because you won't get the commission bonuses unless you decide to become a lifer.

Speaking of which, everyone who works there is a lifer as well, adding to the sadness of it all. Lotto tickets and scratchers are used as incentives for people to hit the sales goal. If you talk to any of your co-workers at all during your shift, you'll probably get chewed out by the manager. You also get constant threats of being fired if you don't get enough sales, show up 1-5 minutes late, or talk back, disobey or show any discontent to the manager at all. The managers show fake smiles and laughs, behind all of it is a ruthless character. On top of all of this, the actual office is dirty, gray and drab as well.

This job literally put me into depression.
Pros
Short shifts, no excruciating work (you just sit there and call)
Cons
Horrible management and bosses, horrible pay, very non-friendly work environment, depressing

For Profit company with non profit ideals
Campaign Manager (Former Employee) –  Toronto, Ontario Canada and Arvada, Colorado2 February 2012
The company worked hard with non-profit arts organizations to develop and manage various fundraising efforts that they may have. The hours could make one feel like a vampire at times (1-11 PM or so), but the majority of the peers that you worked with were supportive and up for the same mission. Being out in the field however, there was not enough contact and connection with the main office in Toronto. I am sure that in today's more technologically advanced world, that would be different.
