    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fund for the Public Interest (Boston, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    They asked really simple questions and it seemed to me like they would hire anybody. I didn't take the job due to all of the reviews I've read, but my first warning sign was that they wanted me to memorize verbatim a rap in just a day. It was clear that they would hire anybody, but I was desperate after having my temp job ending just a week before.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fund for the Public Interest (Atlanta, GA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and they called me asking for an interview. I asked to postpone it and they gave me a number to call for my interview at my own convince. I ended up not calling back, but they gave me another call and set up an interview time. They send you an email to a group of people and have a group information session. Then the director calls everyone individually through skype. I feel as if they hire just about anyone because mine went terribly but they still hired me.

    Easy, they hire almost anyone. They work on really cool campaigns but sometimes canvassing can get difficult so be prepared for what you are getting yourself into. It is a quick way to earn some extra money if you need a part time job
