“An excellent place to learn political organizing skills and gain experience. Many people got their start working with the Fund or other Public Interest Network organizations. There are multiple training's per year that entry level and experienced staff have the opportunity to attend. ”

Be very careful to listen to the language they use to describe your potential benefits. What they offer is good, but only if you qualify as a full time, year round employee, which means you need to be hired within a certain window of time. Health insurance is decent, but you should keep track of your PTO yourself because they won't.
There was no benefits package
As a canvasser, you have the opportunity to make decent money -- if you are an excellent canvasser. I did well, and some weeks made $20 an hour, which I was thrilled with. Then I was promoted to an assistant director. There is much more desk duty, which is understandable, but then that means that you don't have the option to canvass as much. Plus your hours increase DRASTICALLY. So, when I became a manager, I was literally making $5 to $7 hours an hour, and working 70+ hours a week. Insane. No one can live like that. It's a horrible business model. Even people who care profoundly about the mission cannot survive like that.
bonuses can only be received if you collect a certain amount of phone numbers and emails from contributors. In addition your pay become reduced to minimum wage if you do not make your quota.
There isn’t one. You will feel disposable.
The worst thing is that you have to be employed for an entire year in order to access the benefits package. There is, however, commission received-you receive 20% of whatever you make above your weekly quota.
Good rate of vacation accrual after a year on staff
