    It gives you a space for learning how to speak in the public. That is a life-long skill you can apply to everywhere.

    The time requirement doesn't really work. Most people don't actually work here for 90 days so it's hard to get benefits.

    There are no benefits. But you do have weekends off. Although occasionally there are opportunities to work weekends. Workers do not receive proper incentives.

    I was the only person in my graduate school class who had any health benefits whatsoever for awhile after graduating, so even having those health benefits was exciting! Staff are discouraged from taking their vacation time during critical campaign times (so not at all during the summer if you work with the Summer Outreach Program, not at all during the semester if class is in session, etcetera) but I was always fine with planning my vacation around winter and spring breaks. I felt very fortunate to work with an organization that doesn't limit sick days (it's impossible to not get sick at least once a semester when surrounded by a campus' various plagues).

    There is no benefits, all pay is commission. Higher up positions may have benefits but I do not have that information.
