    Former Employee - AmeriCorps VISTA in Spartanburg, SC
    Former Employee - AmeriCorps VISTA in Spartanburg, SC

    I worked at AmeriCorps full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity out of college for those interested in nonprofit organizations, and/or moving to a different area. Job satisfaction is completely dependent on the organization, so make sure you do your homework before applying and accepting a position. Great way to serve a community, get $$ toward student loans, and meet others with similar interests.

    Cons

    Overall structure is complicated, and the staff, grant requirements and organization are constantly changing. Makes for a lot of red tape. Good pay cannot be your goal when looking to serve with Americorps. Yearly salary is equal to the poverty line in your community- ranging from 10K-15K usually. Good way to learn to live on a budget!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd like to have seen State/Regional Directors at least once or twice during my service.
