I worked at Public Outreach part-time for less than a year

Pros

I had some of the best coworkers, most effective, caring on-the-job training in this company as a neighborhood canvasser, couldn't have asked for better colleagues!

Cons

A bit informal, as workplaces go. The work itself is fairly stressful, as there are quotas to fulfill (though they are not particularly difficult and the staff, again, are very understanding). The job is based a little on skill and a lot on luck, so it can be tricky to stay motivated.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the great work -- friendly coworkers and supportive superiors are the best thing to have when doing a job like canvassing!

    I worked at Public Outreach part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I lost weight due to all the walking.

    Cons

    They advertise the at a higher rate than they actually pay you. Then, once you say you're committed to the job they tell you the advertised rate is the rate after your probation period. Starting wage was $10 an hour, although advertised as $13 an hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When it comes to corporate value or anything else you need to lead by example.
