    Phone Canvasser Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I came in full interview garb only to find everyone in shorts. The woman interviewing me was emphatic and motivating. I was whisked through the hiring process before I even knew what was happening. The office space was somewhat odd, in that someone walked through my interview into an adjoining office.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (Denver, CO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Easy Interview, Friendly Staff. They didn't ask any technical questions, just outreach activity questions. They just showed interest in knowing more about you and how you would deal with people. Probably close to behavioral questions. Everyone I met was polite and I was also given the option of working part time and full time. I chose full time.

    "Summer" Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (Ann Arbor, MI).

    Interview

    Interviewed for the "marketing internship" come to find its not really an internship. They just need people to knock on doors so they made it up. The description of the internship and what I actually would have been doing did not match up. When they finally revealed this to me they were pushy in having me come back again for another. Felt deceived and it wasted a lot of my time.

    Field Canvasser Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Clean Water Action in January 2015.

    Interview

    The interviewing process wasn't difficult at all. I applied online on their website as a field canvasser and was given a call the next day about coming in for an interview. I set up an interview the next day available. The interview was short and concise, basically answering some questions about yourself that I don't feel really related to the job. Afterwards, I was given the opportunity to go on an observational interview. This was basically just a day out in the field shadowing a field manager and learning the basic "rap" of what you say door to door. After the day out, I was brought into the office and asked if I wanted to stay on board.

    Interview

    This was a really laid back and short interview. Just make sure you have looked over the website to understand the mission of the organization and can speak to why you are interested in the job. You should also be able to demonstrate your ability to communicate effectively with people; if you have any professional/volunteer experience with outreach make sure to mention it.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (Montclair, NJ) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The company does a great job of making the job look appealing. It is complete bogus. They want you to go door to door and collect money from people. They make it seem as if you will make great money but that is only if u collect great money.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (Ann Arbor, MI) in April 2014.

    Interview

    The initial interview allows the Canvass Director to meet you face-to-face and talk about your background. The 2nd interview, if offered, allows you to spend a day with a senior staff member to see if you'd like the job and how you handle yourself. If hired, there are ten days of paid training, and various goals to meet along the way for fundraising.

    Nope. Standards are standards, and you make your own bonus pay. It's all on you.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Clean Water Action.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume on Craigslist, they called me and chatted with me for about 10 minutes and asked if I wanted to come into the office for an interview. Came in the next day or so for an interview that lasted about 20-30 minutes with the field manager which went well. Then I came in for "observation day" where you observe a field trainer knock on people's doors and go through the rap, you can ask them lots of questions, they go through the rap with you on a couple doors and then for the last hour or so you go do it on your own. If your trainer recommends you then you can start training. Once you are a trainee, you have a maximum of 15 days to make staff by reaching certain quotas (very doable). I think I made staff in 10 days, and the shortest you can make it is in 5.
