Management has no idea what they're doing. Each chapter is amazing.
ASSISTANT (Current Employee) –  Hamilton, ON18 October 2016
Probably a common theme with charities. The chapters that I worked with were fantastic, but management made some key errors in funding and organization that they are never reprimanded for. Keep up the good work, chapters!

Database Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Montréal, QC21 October 2014
Good place to work lots of time off they do not pay overtime they compensate with time off and good benefits. Overall a good atmosphere if your in your mid twenties lots of social activities. Made me appreciate the fact that I am in good health I really enjoyed the human factor of the jobs. Being responsible for verifying all donations entered into the database on a daily basis and during major fundraising was the core of the position. Manage the fundraising support team, coordinate volunteers during fundraisers, mass mailings, customer service, contact person in Quebec for any problems, or inquiries about donations or the databases malfunctions, create tickets, responsible for promotional inventory, coordinate with event managing companies during major fundraising e.g. hotel reservation, seating arrangement and so on. Lots of information and things to learn in a small amount of time. Good place to work when you graduate and need to gain experience in a non-profit. Very big turnover among employees.
Pros
Good cause and good place to work when you just graduate and want to gain experience in a non-profit
Cons
no enough time to learn the job in the probation time, unstructural training so very hard to learn the position, some managers have no people managing skills, very poor computerized system, so much time waisted verifing is information transfers from one database to the next, way too many meetings for no reason
