    I worked at AmeriCorps as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Outdoors, 4 days a week, paid training for earning your red card (fire fighting card).
    Learning new plants, the edible kind and none edible kind. Trains you for disaster relief, gives you a great opportunity to network and meet new people from various cities. Sent to different states for disaster response during natural disasters. Paid HAZMAT training. Paid CPR and Wilderness ER training. That can eventually help you become a paramedic if so desired.

    Cons

    Very physically challenging, very tired after work so it feels like all you have are Fri.-Sun. to catch up on your house hold chores, and shopping. Working through all four seasons outdoors, working in snow, carrying sometimes up to 60lbs of mulch and various other things. Only minimum wage, no raises( unless you are a supervisor). Sometimes the location of the work site is very challenging as well.
