    Canvasser Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Amnesty International (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very casual and unintimidating. The first part was done as a group interview and then afterward each interviewee was called in individually. The questions were very straightforward.

    It was clear that the interviewer was passionate about what Amnesty International stands for. If you are applying for this job, you should show a genuine interest in human rights, as this was a main focus in the interview.

    It seemed as though everyone was told whether they got an offer on the spot in their individual interview.

    Field Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Great interview. Easygoing. Very clear about expectations and quotas. $13/hr is only during two weeks of training. Within three most of experience time you get paid more, and after three months there's great chances of growing within. Pay attention to the information that's given to you. Many reviews were negative because people don't listen. Like any other job, you have to put WORK into it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Amnesty International (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interview was in person, it was a group interview. It was easy, the interviewer would ask one question so everyone had a chance to answer. At the end I realized that they need people for a street campaign, so it wasn't something I was interested in.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Amnesty International (New York, NY).

    Interview

    They are currently expanding quickly so as long as you aren't a complete bumbling fool when they ask you what made you decide to interview for Amnesty then you are in. Your main difficulty will be in the first week. Many people decide they aren't suited for constantly stopping people in the street to ask for them for money, even if it is for a great organization. Especially in winter. We started with about 18 people on Tuesday, and by Wednesday we were down to about 5

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Amnesty International (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was a easy interview, they asked basic questions.
    After I received the offer and started working, it actually wasn't as cracked up to be. You have to pay for your own expenses while at work, the management gives you one week of training next week you're on your own.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Amnesty International (Washington, DC) in October 2016.
