I gave the 2nd star only because the volunteer coordinator at KVIE is capable, intelligent, and trying to improve the volunteer environment there. 1. Telephone bids during art auctions: Paid staff impatiently snapped out orders, often contradicting each other and/or the "training" instructions. Seemed to be unprofessionally nervous under "live" tv conditions. 2. Special receptions for major donors: Midl-age and older vols were assigned to behind-the-scenes & more menial duties(scooping & hauling ice, serving beverages & dessert), while young girls worked at the registration table & greeting guests. 3. Volunteers had an established and somewhat snooty hierarchy -- not a welcoming experience for new volunteers. I left after 2.5 years.
