Great team environment!
I am really enjoying my work with Inspire so far. The pay and schedule options fit perfectly for me and I love working from home, which I did for the last 3 years of my previous job. I've been really surprised by how much it doesn't feel like call centre work, even though we fundraise by phone. I love the people I work with...my TLs and managers are so patient and they care about you! I'm also happy to say my fellow fundraisers are some of the nicest, most encouraging people I've ever met..it's great that we have a mid-shift meeting almost every day...and I can't say enough good things about the donors we get to talk to. There is good in this world!

I was worried about starting a new job, after being with my last company for so long, but this place has exceeded my expectations.

very enjoyable
I found calling to be very rewarding. I enjoyed the interactions we had with clients. They were very happy with our successes and made us feel like we were part of their team. We participated in events like softball games and fundraising events. Coworkers and managers were very pleasant to work with. I learned alot and would recommend this to anyone looking for a call center job.
Pros
Good pay, trips, co-workers, fun environment

Not a good company.
The training is all over the place I found that since day one. I wasnt given my employee benefits for almost a year into my employment. You just Simpy do not get recognized for the hard work that you do, I didnt even get so much as a Christmas Card. This is a temporary fix until you can find something better.
Pros
There arent any besides they will hire pretty much anyone
Cons
The management, training, owners

Fast paced and competitive
very fast paced on a dialer. Many times you were on the phone for long periods without talking to anyone.
You had to follow a script and they did not allow you to deviate.

very enjoyable
I have had many years of experience working in an office this is my first time working in a call center. Overall I am very happy. There are good days and challenging days but I find the work to be very rewarding. It gets easier every day and I enjoy feeling like I’m making a difference. There is a lot of support and encouragement from the people I work with. This is a welcoming and caring team and everyone tries to help you to succeed. This is perfect for me right now and I would recommend this position.
Pros
co-workers, reward trips, clients, fun environment
Cons
working nights

All around best call center experience
This is by far the best call center experience I have had yet, and I have worked in call centers for over 10 years. A typical day is made up of calling current child sponsor to find new sponsors for children in developing communities. I have learned a lot about fundraising and communication. There is a lot of coaching and support from the team, someone is always here to help. The training is thorough and on-going which I love. The hardest part of the job is the repetition and sitting. The most enjoyable part is the people and the clients that I work with. It's nice to be on a team with other agents who enjoy their work and make a difference.
Pros
Fun clients and staff, flexible hours and great bonuses
Cons
Working evenings

Good
Good work from home position. I don't quite like their sales style, the pitch is very rigid, structured and long-winded. It's also very weak and sounds like you're begging; not my style.

Dig deep, save kids, make the world a better place
I loved working for this company! Unfortunately, my circumstances changed so I couldn't keep working for Inspire.

The training is great - I especially loved coaching sessions with my team lead and other managers. Everyone in this workplace really cares about what they do and making the world a better place. By listening to my coaches, I was able to improve and even won a Tim Card for providing excellent customer service!


Coworkers are awesome - you will never meet a better group of friendly, passionate and helpful people!


Speaking to donors is amazing! It's really fun to get donations, but it is also amazing to know how many great people there are out there, making the world a better place. It is such a privilege to be able to speak to these amazing people.


To sum it up: great job, fantastic workplace, amazing people. :)
Pros
You get to raise money for good causes, performance incentives, high performers can go on trips, very friendly atmosphere, fun events, benefits
Cons
Lots of sitting, but they have stretching sessions :)

Perfect work from home job
The best work from home experience I have had (I had over 3 years working from home). Team leads and management were always there and worked hard to keep us connected. There was constant coaching and support. We used chat and tools to connect through the day. And there was always support from the team as well, agents would share calls and tips, even run work shops. After years in collections, it was so nice to love the people I was with and know that we made a difference each day. I never won a trip, but those looked fun.
Pros
Simply the best people, pay, coaching, support
Cons
Long shifts, lots of talking, sitting, evening hours, rotating Saturdays

Great company and people
It's nice to see companies who get it right; good people and top notch clients. The initial training could be longer, but well organized and well presented. The work itself is very rewarding although outbound calls are certainly not for everyone. Everyone on the team was friendly, engaged and very professional. My complaint's would be the long hours and only offering full time shifts.
Pros
Good training, support and feedback. Excellent work, rewarding and fulfilling.
Cons
Long days, only full time option.

Great work at home opportunity
Probably the best work-at-home job I've had, I've gone through several. Very nice training and coaching, lots of information. Really liked my team members and clients. So nice to know you are making a difference and helping to find sponsors for a great cause. What an experience to learn more about what our client is doing to end poverty every day. Go team!

I found a day time job with better hours for my family, but would definitely recommend.
Pros
Feel good about what you are doing, nice wage, co-workers, coaching and support, well organized and run.
Cons
Long shifts, evenings, repetition.

Great place to work!
I worked at Inspire for over a year. Just left to start my own family business. I loved the experience. Great place, great people, fun place to go every day.

I'd recommend this job to friends/family.
Pros

Product and fun place to work
Providing great donor experience on all calls regardless of how the call went.
To be persistent as it pays most of the time

Management was encouraging, takes time out to listen to one's concerns.

Encouraging co-workers who show an interest in each others well being

Getting no sponsorship up to week of taking calls

Having donors thank you after the calls and telling you that they are so happy that you called
Pros
Daily incentives to boost staff morale
Cons
Long hours

Amazing clients and fun environment
I have to say I worked with Inspire for over a year and found it a great place to work. We had a great team and co-workers and I really enjoyed the job. Much better than any other call centre in the area - and I worked for most of them. I found a full-time job with daytime hours (I have little ones at home) - but I really enjoyed this company, nice clients and fun environment. It is an outbound call centre and they have very high standards - so it's not for everyone, but they also provide more training, coaching and support than any call centre I have worked for. Great pay and incentives.
Pros
pay, clients, co-workers and incentives.
Cons
evening hours, repetition of work.

Rotating Door with the delusion of a family atmosphere
Upon first starting Inspire fills its new hires with this we are a big happy family and not like any other telemaketing place out there in fact "we don't even like calling ourselves at telemaketing organization" but thats exactly what they are. They have little time to work with people and forget quickly good aspects of employees. You may be leading the pack for 2 months with the best stats then a one week slump will get you written up and go in you file. If your a great sales person with few slumps its a great place for you. Be warned the only thing they are inspired to do is Hire and fire!
Pros
top sellers sent on vacations
Cons
rotating door, small business skirts labour laws
