Pros

Great work environment, feels good to help, very positive workplace

Cons

No parking, commute inconvenient, hours strange: 2 PM- 10 PM
Note: a little dangerous when you're a 17-year-old girl, job requires going door-to-door in the city at night alone while carrying cash****

    I have been working at Clean Water Action

    Pros

    Clean Water Action is a great organization. Fun people to work with, lots of opportunities to advance as a canvasser. Some offices have unions.

    Cons

    They should work on more opportunities to advance canvassers into other organizing positions. Also could work on recruiting a more diverse group of people.

    I worked at Clean Water Action full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay for canvassers, soliciting door-to-door one-time donations instead of trying to get people to sign up for monthly credit card contributions on the street like most canvassing groups, generally a very positive office culture, get good exercise walking every day, working for a good cause, good experience for a non-profit career in the future when coupled with other qualifications, good opportunities to advance to field manager, opportunities to cross-train in other cities which can be a lot of fun and a good learning experience.

    Cons

    Harder to get donations in the current economy, responsible for meeting a quota, if you do not meet the quota often enough you can be fired, kind of cultish denial of turf having an impact on fundraising and general "drinking of the koolaid," but no more so than you'd get at any canvassing job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Canvass directors should work to reduce turnover and build camaraderie among long-term employees as it's the best way to have a strong team. Canvass directors need to be chosen carefully not just for their fundraising skills but for their leadership abilities.
