Featured Review

Current Employee - Regional Recruiter

I have been working at Peace Corps full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

It is a great work environment, wonderful team makes and it federal agency has some great benefits.

Cons

Being field based, not as many offices in the U.S, so the team environment is a bit lacking

Advice to Management

Allowing more conferences throughout the year when recruiters can get together for meetings and events. Allowing more upward mobility for field based recruiters, and increase opportunities compared... to HQ staff

Former Employee - Summer Assistant

I worked at AmeriCorps part-time for less than a year

Pros

Opportunity to help people; great experience; resume booster

Cons

the bi-monthly stipend was not enough to live on, even in a rural area.

Advice to Management

Pay a little bit more.
