    Former Employee - Vista in Chicago, IL

    I worked at Corporation for National and Community Service as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    This is a great opportunity for people who are looking to give back to their community, looking for an internship, looking for a new career, dealing with employment hardship or who are passionate about what the commit to.

    Cons

    The only down two down sides about this opportunity is that if you take on this role you will have to commit to living at at or below poverty for 1 year. Secondly, if you for some reason if you get displaced from an assignment or opportunity due to it not being a good fit where you are stationed, you risk the other benefits or rewards at the end of service.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When a VISTA has an issue with his assignment, do not automatically assume that it due to the VISTA not being a good fit. The management of that organization could have some issues that deeply rooted in their culture. Secondly, when things do not seem to be working get with the site and the VISTA volunteer in a conference meeting to discuss openly a resolution versus speaking to each party separately and forming a bias opinion. My CNCS contact said somethings to me that was very unprofessional and dare not repeat it nor am I trying to burn a bridge. However I will always remember this opportunity as my opportunity of being able to give back because my second site I went to treated me as part of the team, welcomed my energy, creativity, optimism and I am still volunteering time.
