abusive

Suggestions for improvement

  • hire an effective director who knows how to run a buisiness

What I like about the company

My coworkers are advocates for victims

The Director is a drunk. Self-medicates mental health issues with alcohol then falls down the stairs (more than once) breaking bones and is out of work. Not sure what's happening to the companies money.

Company Culture

People care about the cause but are exclusive

Office / Work Environment

Very cramped

Workplace Safety

No insurance if you caysecan accident in the field

Challenging Work

Found it to be challenging

Suggestions for improvement

  • The hours we work are really hard. There is an exclusive feel within the employees that is isolating

What I like about the company

Met a few supportive friends while I was here. I know the therapy and services they provide to victims are wonderful. But to work as a canvasser is pretty tough and I’m not sure I’d recommend it to anyone

What I dislike about the company

I do not approve of the model of pay for canvassers that it is based on commission. I think it distracts from the greater purpose of what we are representing.
