I worked at Texas Campaign for the Environment part-time (Less than a year)
TCE is an effective organization the works for real change on environmental issues. It's a great opportunity if you want get involved with environmental activism. The work is hard, but rewarding. There are opportunities for advancement and if you stick around they will invest in you by sending you to conferences and to crosstrain at other offices across the country. They will hire almost anyone, but you have to prove yourself if you want to stick around. This job helped me gain experience to do other work in the environmental nonprofit field.
This job takes a lot of effort and energy and there is a lot of pressure to perform. You need to meet fundraising standards and if you miss repeatedly you will be fired. And in order to succeed you really need to throw your whole self into the job. The fact that the work really is meaningful makes this easier, but it can be extremely draining. For most people this is not going to be a forever job. With that being said, I did enjoy my time there and am glad I did it. I came out of the job with a lot of useful skills that helped me in future jobs.
Advice to Management
Be more understanding when people are ready to leave and move onto another job. Quitting was very difficult because I felt like I was letting you down by leaving.

- Accepted OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Texas Campaign for the Environment.
The interview was not to long, only about 5-10 minutes. The director went over the basic role of a field organizer. They were very thorough in their explanation of the job and made me feel really empowered about coming back for the second interview which is called observation day. This second interview gave me a chance to see how the organization gets people involved and finds its supporters in the community. By the end of the interview I was ready to start right away, unfortunately I could not start until the next day.
