It’s also why we designed a compensation plan to ensure that our canvassers are among the best paid in the world, with a living basic wage and a generous bonus structure wholly based on quality metrics.
All of our Canvassers are employed members of staff. We wouldn’t entrust any conversation to independent contractors.
We pride ourselves on our people; on how they represent our clients, and the stories they tell. We thought you might like to hear some of their stories too. If you’d like to become a part of this, just press the button “Apply for a job” above.
“Keep your plants away from me! I’ve somehow managed to kill every plant I’ve ever owned”.
“I’ve been working for NCE for 3 years. The team is incredible, the skills I get to use are fun, and all for great causes”.
“An interesting fact about me? I have ten years of martial arts experience and I choreographed Hip-Hop”.
“I’ve been working for NCE for more than a year. Working here allows me to positively impact as many people as I can while leaving a legacy of change for my daughter”.
“I’m a breakdancer!”
“I’ve been working for NCE for 4 months. I enjoy the sense of family and unity with my fellow canvassers”.
“I have a cat named Puddin. I call her Puddin Pop when she’s being cute, which is all the time”.
“I’ve been working for NCE for 16 months. I love knowing that my work is helping come up with solutions for a better world, not contributing to the problem”.
Glen wanted to try something different, that’s why he thought it would be a good idea to respond when he saw NCE ad. “I am making a difference in a fun atmosphere” said Glen about his work. “I just want to keep improving and make as big an impact as I can”.
On the streets Glen’s favorite strategy is compliments and southern hospitality. During his free time Glen enjoys playing music, running, and anything outdoors.
“I joined NCE in November of 2016 after meeting Lateefah (our Office Director) while she was canvassing”.
“I love working here, we are like a family. Lateefah cares about each individual here as if they were one of her relatives. To have that in your corner is amazing”.
“I’m a painter and visual artist. I’m also currently in school studying Psychology and want to be an Art Therapist. My goal for the future is to start my own nonprofit”.
“I’ve been working for NCE for 6 months. My favorite part of the job is meeting people of different backgrounds and lifestyles who are all choosing to give to a charity”.
Sadiki was looking for a position on Indeed when NCE’s ad popped up, and
this job has exceeded his expectations. His favorite part of the job is definitely the people he works with, whose guidance and humor keep this experience fun as well as productive.
Sadiki’s favorite stop line so far is: “Woaahh where are you from?”. Answering the question “What makes a successful Canvasser?” Sadiki says: “Successful Canvassers listen to instruction and apply their lessons on the street.”
In his spare time Sadiki enjoys Martial Arts, recording music, drawing and walking/running through nature trails. When it comes to holidays, Sadiki’s dream destination is Okinawa, one of a group of islands south of Japan, because it’s extremely beautiful, but most of all his style of karate originated from that island. And if that island was an uninhabited, Sadiki
would bring a “Warriors” book, probably “Firestars Quest”, and a movie called “Book of Eli” with Denzel Washington and Mila Kunas.
“I was hesitant about NCE because I was worried it would be really salesy, but after meeting Meredith and everyone I fell in love with the culture of the office and I was very relieved that everyone was cool.”
“I love most about NCE is working with the people around me. Save The Children is a super feel-good cause to fight for, but I get along with every single person in our office from the top, down. I’ve been in marketing environments before and this is nothing like what I’ve experienced in the past. To me, the culture of an office is everything, and NCE nailed it. NCE is something I’ve become passionate about. I feel like I’m becoming a better person because the people around me hold me accountable and they make sure I’m belly-laughing for like half of every day”.
“One of the things I enjoy most about working at NCE, is just how different and genuine it is. I get to do something where every day is an opportunity to do good and genuinely change the world, and that is something that I find absolutely inspiring. That’s why I come back day after day, as every day inspires me, not only to be a better me but to do something more important than myself”.
“I find that my favorite way to engage people is to inspire people, either through compliments or the passion I bring everyday. I also use that passion both on the street and with my photography, which has been a passion of mine since I was 12. Whenever i’m not canvassing or shooting, I am usually eating sushi my favorite food. I guess that also ties in with a fun fact about myself, in that I’m truly terrible at using chopsticks but still insist on using them every time”.
Adrianna loves how supportive everyone in the company is saying “they are so helpful with pitches and motivational speeches” and cites the team of amazing individuals in the Orange County office as the reason to smile every day.
Adrianna believes that success in canvassing comes from pitching from the heart, and being clear on the problems and the solutions that our partner organizations provide. Working on behalf of the ASPCA has also been hugely motivational as Adrianna loves saving animals even out of work as well as designing clothes for animal lovers, and donating a portion of her salary to local rescues.
Lauren loves working for NCE because the company constantly provides opportunities to grow and learn.
Lauren is also a regular in the Canvasser Top 10, and lives by the motto “compete against my personal and team numbers from the day before. Don’t ever settle”. Lauren trusts in herself and her training, and she credits this for being a successful Canvasser. Lauren is also low key obsessed with motivation types and learning in general, which, we’re sure, adds to her success in Canvassing.
Kinsey thought of changing pace when was browsing Indeed, so when Kinsey saw “Animal Advocate” she immediately knew it was the job for her.
Kinsey loves working for NCE and credits colleagues for being a successful Canvasser: “I love everything about NCE… but if I try to narrow it down it is between the amazing and I mean AMAZING humans I work with every day and having positive interactions with people from different places with different backgrounds”. Her go-to strategy is giving a big pleasant wave and moving around to show excitement, along with a smile.
“You just need to consistently stay positive, have a good attitude, be friendly, be your genuine self, be passionate, communicate, listen and learn from your peers and those who work above you, and always remember you are making a positive impact on the world”, said Kinsey.
Marquel saw our ad on Indeed, and thought that a job helping make an impact on the world would be a great choice. The best part of working for NCE for Marquel is feeling like he is part of a family in the office. Marquel would love to work out of the country and help open up offices. “It’s my passion to be the change in the world that we need. I love doing things that impact others in positive ways” said Marquel.
For Marquel, the secret to success in canvassing is being positive and actually empowering people to want to give. His favorite stopping line is “Alright guys I’ve been waiting for you all day, you made it! What’s your name?”.
Marquel is a professional musician, loves eating peach cobbler, reading Dean Koontz books and his favorite film is the first “Iron man”. Marquel would love to meet Malcolm X and listen to all the wisdom he would give and use that to make a similar impact on the world.
Zachariah is a Team Leader on our ASPCA campaign in New Orleans. Here are a few things you might not know about him: he was born on the South Side of Chicago IL, and before starting his journey with NCE was working in case management for mental health services. He was moving to New Orleans for graduate school and looking for a new role when he saw our advertisement online and felt like he fitted the description, which he certainly did.
For Zachariah, the role means getting to spend every day meeting new people and doing something he is good at. His favorite stop-line is: ”Excuse me, you dropped this…conversation with me. Let’s pick it up!”. It is probably not surprising that Zachariah is interested in psychology and fascinated by how the human mind works.
Outside work, Zachariah watches sci-fi movies and loves spending time playing with his puppy. A Harry Potter book and a Star Wars movie would come to desert island with him, and the Caribbean would be Zachariah’s ideal trip destination. His ideal dinner companion? Zachariah’s own father – who passed when Zachariah was young.
When asked what he would change in the world if he could, Zachariah said he would institute financial management and planning into inner city schools’ curricula. This sounds like a pretty great plan to all of us at NCE and we are proud of all you do, Zachariah.
“I’m from San Bruno, CA. got my BS in Chemistry from The Evergreen State College, focused on the inorganic carbon cycle. As part of my studies I went to the Beaufort Sea, north of Alaska, on an oceanography research cruise and got to see majestic, blood-covered polar bears on the sea ice. (One of the more memorable experiences in my life and one that won’t be possible to experience again due to the ice melting!)”.
My passion has always been understanding and protecting the natural world so this job has been a great fit. I love getting to meet people that care about nature and giving them the opportunity to be apart of conserving it.
Outside of work I enjoy running, biking, baking and cooking as well as spending time with my wife and furry family (2 cats and a dog). I’m also a huge nerd and love epic fantasy novels like Lord of the rings, Song of Ice and Fire (aka Game of Thrones), etc. ”
