    Pros

    meeting people involved in the public policy process, and those running for public office like for president or judge or congressman.

    Cons

    Salary, salary, salary. Also lack of benefits. Difficult to work with management. Long hours. Poor office conditions. Political junk in our work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I do not have any information or advice to management for people working on campaigns in Boston or elsewhere. Just work hard.

    Weekend Warriors at Campaigners

    I worked at Campaigners

    Pros

    As a Weekend Warrior, you can come and go to your assigned site as you are scheduled. Usually on the weekends and on Fridays. You get a lot of product training on the company you are a "Representative" for and cool gadgets and promotional stuff to showcase for customers and help out the sales floor at the store.

    Cons

    You are mostly on your own during working hours. There is no sales incentive for the employees even though you are encouraged to do so, just the same hourly wage. You are mostly just a product feedback tool for the Represented company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to keep an eye out for the lazy employees. They will usually clock in late and leave early while saying they were there for the full duration of time.

    Great job for flexibility/Pay Varies

    Pros

    This type of work is great for somebody that enjoys flexibility. It's a great way to build customer service skills, sales and learn about brands. Pay varies depending on the product and expertise required.

    Cons

    The industry became very competitive. This type of work used to be lucrative but the level of pay went down and the expectations went up. I felt the energy changed at this organization. It became less of a team, and more of an impersonal, formalized job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Honor those delegates who strive to make your company look great. They keep you in business!

    I worked at Campaigners

    Pros

    Great hourly pay and commission. No pressure from store management and flexible time management. You can do stock counts any time.

    Cons

    Job gets boring after a while because some hours there are no customers at all, and I have to stand there in order to get paid. Time past pretty slow

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More moving up opportunities could be nice. For example, part time manager and events organizer, some positions that offer more challenges

    Pros

    Was a great place to work 3 years ago.

    Cons

    Mass Lay offs in December 2007 just in time for the holidays. Recruiting just involved reading a script to applicants. They valued quantity over quality of people we hiring.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized. Every week some manager was coming up with a great new way to recruit. Don't promote people because they just kiss ass.

    I worked at Campaigners

    Pros

    If you want to not be home 4 out of 5 days a week, this is the place for you.

    Cons

    no structured training, no feedback or negative feedback only. Always traveling, obscure rules to follow. Your work hours are always increasing with no additional compensation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    try training your managers in what they needto do. Dont just give them a laptop a couple of programs and expect them to know hat to do. Learn to manage your way out of a paperbag before you try to manage others.

    I worked at Campaigners

    Pros

    A very high hourly wage, $18.50. There are no sales quotas to meet. Training is easy and accessible through their website.

    Cons

    Not allowed any days off. Managers have no trust in their employees, so you are mystery shopped every week. Have to sit through b/s hype conference call every other week.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have more faith in your staff
