Satisfactory, although difficult to hit quotas.

Pros

Positive, and progressive work environment. Co-workers are smart, funny and cool to be around. Relatively straightforward and easy shifts. Educating work, with new campaigns.

Cons

Oftentimes, difficult to hit the nighlty quotas, especially with some of the sales leads given, This can lead to termination pretty rapidly. Managers often times can be somewhat annoying constantly asking 'why your night didn't go so well' Which probably was due to the fact that your call leads had low renewal amounts.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clarify the procedures in the office as to what it means to be on the probation period. Give better leads to new workers who show promise.

    Pros

    Funny yet kinda crazy environment, great people to work with.

    All about the money less about the issues, you have to meet quotas or you will be fired.

    The management sucks and you should be more professional!!!

    I worked at Clean Water Action

    Pros

    - Great environmental causes to motivate and amplify your work ethic
    - Nonprofit organization
    - Management down to earth
    - Rapidly develops robust inter-personal and people skills
    - Very informative and full of references on statewide, environmental activism of the past, current, and priorities of the future
    - Hours are later; 2-10 PM
    - Great networking experience/co-workers are awesome
    - Transportation provided to neighborhoods where you will be canvassing

    Cons

    - Consists of door-to-door fundraising; expect to roam neighborhoods in rain, thunder, lightning, snow
    - Has nightly and weekly fundraising "standards" required ($180 nightly, $900 weekly expectations) - It is determined early if you will be a consistently going to reach weekly fundraising requirements so if you don't catch on early and show consistency, they will let you go in a matter of a week after hire
    - Must go to bathroom prior to conducting fieldwork (unless you can convince one of your door contacts to contribute money and let you use their bathroom.)
    - Pay is bi-weekly and consists of either half of your funds raised, or a full-week at minimum wage. Whichever is the higher amount at the end of one full week.
    - Contacts will badger you/call you names if they are strong antagonists to the causes you, on behalf of NJEF, is currently standing for

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. It is what to expect for doing this kind of work. Management was great, and I still support the efforts of the organization though the work is only meant for some.
