Great opportunity to learn new skills and make an impact with your day-to-day work!
Manager (Ancien employé) –  Vancouver, BC21 septembre 2019
Great company to work for. They offer innovative, paid training to improve your skills in communications, fundraising, cultural awareness, and diversity, as well as team-building exercises and activities.

If you apply yourself and bring value to the team, there are many opportunities for career advancement even within weeks of being on the job.

Great vacation benefits with 4 weeks paid to every employee with three months of tenure, benefits after six months and they are flexible with time off requests.

It's an employee-centered organization who cares about its members and helps them grow both personally and professionally.

A challenging job, but a decent employer
Campaigner (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB11 septembre 2019
I worked for F2F Direct in Calgary in 2016 and 2017.

In any job, it's important to distinguish between the type of work, and the type of employer.

Let's start with the type of work.

Door-to-door fundraising is:

(1) Outdoorsy;

(2) A decent workout;

(3) Sometimes repetitive;

(4) Sometimes fulfilling and rewarding; and

(5) Sometimes challenging, thankless work, because you're asking people for money, and most people do not earn enough to give to every single charity that comes asking.

F2F works primarily with the Alberta Cancer Foundation, which funds clinical trials and other cancer-related projects at cancer care clinics around the province.

However, cancer is a deadly illness. Sometimes, people who've had experiences with the health care system find cancer to be an emotionally difficult topic. For example, people may be upset by wait times for certain procedures, or feel that the quality care they, or a loved one, received at a cancer care clinic was poor. More often then not, they're simply upset that cancer entered their lives at all. And since you're the person at the door, asking them for money to fund cancer research, people may choose to express their personal sentiments about cancer and/or health care to you. It's best to not take it personally.

In other cases, people express gratitude for the excellent care they or their loved ones received during difficult times. People share these stories because the memories are meaningful to them. It's best to not take it personally.

I found that, for most people, the decision whether or
  plus... not to donate was independent of how people felt about cancer or the health care system. Some people never gave at the door. For others, signing up for monthly donations at the door was an "impulse buy" decision, usually based on how they'were feeling at the time.

This is actually a good thing for campaigners, since it means that, statistically, if you knock on enough doors, you'll eventually come across someone who's willing to donate.

It's important to remain informed. accurate and truthful. While it's relatively rare to encounter someone publicly spreading misinformation and conspiracy theories about cancer, people in society harbour suspicions about state-funded medical care, and cancer care in particular. Fear of radiation therapy and chemotherapy is common, as is the belief that many forms of cancer treatment are "worse than the disease."

Ironically, thanks to the Alberta Cancer Foundation, Albertans know quite a bit about cancer as a disease. However, some people's understanding of cancer treatment is based on dated information, or worse, based on misinformation and falsehoods spread online.

Secondly, the type of employer. Working for F2F was:

(1) Outdoorsy;

(2) A decent workout;

(3) Sometime repetitive;

(4) Sometimes fulfilling and rewarding; and

(5) Sometimes challenging, thankless work, because you're asking people for money, and the vast majority of people say "no thanks."

To its credit, F2F does not have fundraising quotas. There is no commission pay, because it's not sales work. This has a positive effect on employee morale, and encourages an atmosphere of teamwork and shared success among campaigners, who often work in pairs or small teams.

Performance is monitored through pledges per hour (PPH), but management understands that the PPH is an average - it can go up and down.

Management considers both short and long-term effectiveness of a campaigner's message. if a campaigner can bring an accurate and persuasive message to the door, people will remember the encounter, even if they are unable or unwilling to donate at the time.

P.S. If you don't like being outside, walking or standing, this job is not for you.

Hard job with difficult management
Fundraiser (Ancien employé) –  Victoria, BC7 août 2019
Although our second team lead was quite relaxed and helpful. There was barely any help given to the Victoria team as it wasn't close to the base of Canuck Place Children's Hospice. When there was a lull of pledges in our team, head management went straight to threatening to firing the whole team after saying that they'd help us and support us if there was lulls in pledges. The head office had no idea of the Victoria areas and when mapping out areas they sent us to some less fortunate areas and reused the same maps where the only people who would want to donate were already donating. As well as having to work in all weather conditions there will be people who are very angry and will slam doors and even stand there and yell at you.
Pro's I had cool coworkers.

Fun people
Campaign Fundraiser (Ancien employé) –  Calgary, AB25 mars 2018
A great way to meet good people & get exercise. With this type of work, you can learn a lot about people & about yourself. It's a great challenge to take on, if even for a few months.
Points positifs
Good people, exercise, outdoors
Points négatifs
Full-time is 30 hours/week, so even with good pay/hour, it is the equivalent of minimum wage.

As a member of management with F2F Direct Consulting, I would like to add some context to the main "con" past employees have mentioned. Many people are looking for a standard 9-5 working day, and this would not be the right job for those people year-round. However, we have team members who have stayed with us for years because the typical working hours of this sort of campaign is ideal for them. If you have school or other employment during the day, or your spouse works mornings so you need to stagger childcare, or you simply like the idea of working less than 40 hours per week for personal reasons, this job might be ideal for you. In this sense, it is not at all equivalent of minimum wage; F2F Direct pays significantly more than minimum wage, and compensation does not involve commission in any way. The question is, how many hours are you looking to work, and at what times throughout the week?
