    I have been working at 2evolve full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good learning culture, quick to recognise talented people and promote from within. I started as a fundraiser, changed roles within weeks. There is a great work/life balance, something you don’t see often compared to other workplaces. Management is great, owner Mel is very friendly and down to earth, always is actively involved and checks in with staff. If you ever need help or are starting new, the management in the call center is there to support and make you better.

    Cons

    No cons i can think of.

    I have been working at 2evolve full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    - Coworkers are always nice - HR is fine - They have a kitchen and provide tea and coffee

    Cons

    - Extremely unrealistic targets, they wanted me to get a 33% successful call ratio, after 8 hours training and working there for 5 days. - The 8 week training program is a sham to pay you less, you get trained for one day and then they chuck you on the phones with a script. - They have you lie about things to get people to donate more e.g the script I was reading off said "One in three children in Malawi are suffering from and a lot of the time these kids don't make it past the age of 5" but my team leader told me to say "One in three children in Malawi aren't actually making it past the age of 5 due to chronic malnutrition" greatly inflating the amount of children that die to make people feel bad. - They make you hit a minimum amount of $ per call average or they fire you, they want you to average $120 in upgrades per call and if you get 120 120 60 then they will be disappointed as if we have any say in how much people want to increase. - To get any sort of bonus or commission you have to hit 70 succesful calls a week, 14 per day, the most I ever seen someone get in a day while I was there is 18 and all the other days 9/10 people got 8-10 successful calls.

    I have been working at 2evolve full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In the last 1-2 years I've been working here, I have seen many people start off as newbies and get promoted into team leader and shift leader positions. Some are also promoted into the corporate side. There are bonuses paid each week which is very rewarding if you hit the targets. The office environment is high energy and very fun to be in, not only during team huddles but throughout the day. There are coaches to help you if you are falling behind.

    Cons

    It is a sales based role so there are obviously targets to hit. There's an minority of new starters who have an entitled attitude as though success in sales is guaranteed after training. Just like other sales role, you do need a positive attitude and be resilient, as there are going to be times where results will be slower than usual. You also need to take initiative and think about why some calls were successful while others weren't. Unfortunately some new callers lose sight of that and give up too early.

    I have been working at 2evolve full-time

    Pros

    I started at 2evolve a year ago, within 8 weeks I progressed to Shift leader, 3 months later I was team leader and now senior management. The organisation are quick to promote within and recognize potential. I'd never had any experience within the fundraising sector but it feels great when your hard work benefits non profit organisations!

    Cons

    If you don't do well with KPIs the job isn't for you. But for those driven by targets you'll love it.

    I worked at 2evolve full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    If you like working with backpackers this is the place to be.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, this business has an exceptionally high turnover of staff and you will be constantly intimidated by new trainees poking around. You will be regaled with wonderful stories of an eight-week training program and then shat at verbally on your first day as you are barraged with expectations of high sales figures earned only by the businesses top sales dogs. Be expected to pay for your own headset and security pass by way of a deposit, so gracefully returned to you when you're forcefully ejected a few weeks later. Average salespeople need not apply: one day without a sale and you'll be promptly asked to 'stop things there' and consecutively exit the building. No phones nor notebooks on the floor and a questionable 'do not call' register at best.
