I wouldn't wish this job on my worst enemy
Telemarketer (Former Employee) – Melbourne VIC – 14 October 2016
i believe that anyone can do better than applying for this job. this place is hiring every month, so this is why you will always meet new people and friends, because the smart ones would have left this rubbish job.
my typical day consists of:
.coming in early to clean my area/computer/headphones for the day
.supervisors will talk about what charity we're promoting and how we're going to harass people with for the week/month by making them donate even if they're broke as f
.you will be calling people non stop, you will talk non stop even if your face falls off, you will get hung up on, you will have to try and push people to donate, you will hardly catch your breath unless its break time. the supervisors will walk around and camp out behind your seat if your not reaching target and you will get called up and dismissed if you dont reach target most times.
what i learned:
. never to apply for a fundraising role ever again, you will not be appreciated unless you make sales or reach targets
.Manger, admin staffs and work colleges are cool, but some *supervisors* needs to get off her high horse.
.you will always meet plenty of new co workers because people are leaving every week, because they dont like working for this company, which is why apple marketing group is always hiring.
hardest part of the job:
. trying to meet unrealistic targets, and repeating the same thing over and over like a robot to make poor people donate
most enjoyable part of the job:
. LMAO NOTHING IS ENJOYABLE
free instant coffee and tea
EVERYTHING besides from meeting new people and coffee/tea
