Toxic

Volunteered for SVP for the summer and glad I left. The environment was quite toxic with the older staff mostly keeping to themselves and not as inclusive as they advertised. Customer experience was more negative than positive with many thinking that standing around and talking to staff and volunteers asking personal questions were okay and allowed. I was expected to come in on certain days and do set hours, much like a part-time job but unpaid. I left after after college resumed and landed a better (paid) job soon after.

Passion exudes charity fundraisers

I worked for these in the capacity of a volunteer and, although it did not have career prospects or a salary, I enjoyed the passion which exuded from volunteers who genuinely wanted to help people.
