Great summer job, but tough to hang on to

Community Organizer (Former Employee)
Ann Arbor, MI

I worked at Clean Water Action

ProsPay was very reasonable, friendly management, and a very laid back atmosphere. Although only about an hour per day was spent in the office, time spent there was enjoyable. The real bulk of the job was spent out on "turf" (in a neighborhood, knocking on people's doors). That aspect of the job varied from fantastic (if you were having a good day and a good week) to soul crushing (on a bad day during a bad week). Your performance is determined by how much you get in donations. There is a weekly standard everyone is expected to make. If you make more, you get a bonus. If you make less to often you get put on review.

ConsSince you're paid based on performance it can sometimes feel like you're being ripped off. You'll never be paid less than minimum wage, but if you spend more than 40 hours working hard all week and only come out with minimum wage, you feel cheated. Also, it's tough to hang onto the job. If you fall below standard (the amount everyone is expected to get in donations in a week) two weeks in a row you are put on review,which means that you have to make standard or lose your job. The first time, your review only lasts one week. However the second time it is three weeks.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing, you guys are great! Only recommendation I have is to allow people some more leeway during a three week review.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
