    Pros

    Absolutely the best experience I have had. Loved the kindred souls I worked with (for five day, while I tried to make quota) Such a learning and growing experience if you really care about the cause. I can say I loved the experience even if I ended up dead tired after each day but it also could of been the stress I had trying to make quota.

    -Beautiful individuals who are passionate about what they do -Fabulous supportive supervisors
    -Growing experience, you are with beautiful conservationists and you are as well an activist and part of the movement!
    I am who I am now because of Greenpeace.
    -Learning experience that helps with ANY job.
    -It seemed like I was paired with only the bestest activist or maybe I'm wrong and they're all fabulous beings and canvassers, but on my last day I got introduced to musical medicine and had such a fabulous stressful day filled with tears after I was let go. And more tears for the next few days. And still when I think about it.
    -Meet Scott, Kristina and Travis my deepest love for you three

    Cons

    -Making QUOTA (it's understandable but make it a lot more reasonable) the days I was there that word became a nightmare
    -If you have been a fabulous canvasser and don't make quota for I believe two weeks you are let go
    And there went a friend if you're of course still there
    -The STRESS of making quota

    Advice to Management

    Please please please make quota reasonable as other organizations have. I so badly want to go back and give it another try but I'm overwhelmed by the thought of not knowing if I'll make quota or if I'm not capable of keeping my job if I don't after the following weeks, months or years.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Greenpeace (Washington, DC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    It was relatively straightforward--they sent an email and asked for an interview. However, they were incredibly unorganized. They would set up interview times--then email again minutes later and say "just kidding." Further, they would call during the time that they had already cancelled--this happened three times during the course of my interview process. Not every department is as disorganized, it is mainly HR.
