Canvassing for "Public Outreach" ?
    #3992828 - 03/31/05 12:24 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Alright, so i hate my foodservice job - and got offered a job Canvassing for *public outreach* - who takes contracts for organizations such as Green Peace to fundraise money by talking to people on the street and rallying them for the cause.

Sounds great, 12.50 an hour, 6.5 hours 5-6 days a week, working with likeminded cute girls, and globally conscious people, with oppurtunity to advance.

Also sounds too easy, and too good to be true.

is it?

but is it a job where they'll tell me to stick my thumb up my ass and make a commission which i wont... cause to the people here, canvasser's are just like bums asking for change... and then they'll tell me to fuck off, and suck in another idealistic kid to replace my absense on the street for 4 days before he learns the lesson i just learnt, and the cycle continues?

my ex girlfriend did that and all sounds chill at first, but it turned out they only give the 12.50 an hour if you reach a certain quota which is next to impossible. It sucked because they were not straight up with everyone about the pay plan. Everyone busted their ass for a few weeks, got ripped off, quit, then they hire a bunch of new people and do it all over again. Make sure you are guaranteed that hourly wage, and get it in writing.

She ended up getting minimum wage which is 6.75 an hour here in California. The thing is they never mentioned anything about minimum wage, they told her it was going to be twice that. I think that's pretty shady.

I can't remember the name of the organization, but Public Outreach doesn't ring a bell. I'm just giving you a heads up because I bet they all work the same way. Theres not a lot of money in that kind of buisiness so I don't think they could pay you 12.50 unless you bust out hard and raise a shitload of money. I could be wrong, but get the pay plan in writing before you quit your current job, then prepare to get a bunch of doors slamed in your face!

yeah, thats pretty much what Mom told me - but alot of friends are saying "go for it" i think ill stay on part time, and rock it - lots of cute girls, and livin for a slightly immoral cause - if i can make minimum wage outdoors, meeting cute girls - im happy.

thanks for the heads up.
