    Community Organizer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Philadelphia, PA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (Philadelphia, PA) in June 2017.

    Interview

    They call you, and have a couple of questions lined up. Such as why do you love the environment? If you pass that then you move on to an in-person interview. Its not that bad, its more of a conversation. If they like you then you move on to a "day-in-the-life" which is when you shadow someone. I did that and if you ask around you can find out how bad working there is.

    Community Organizer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Long Branch, NJ
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (West Long Branch, NJ).

    Interview

    A very odd atmosphere; everything had a name. The people were almost too kind and you'll find out that the job is essentially door-to-door sales at extremely inconvenient hours for yourself and the people you bother. The "interview" is just shadowing them on their sales journey, and then they have you go alone (so you're working for them for free for the day). Good job for hippies and old people to do in spare time. Not for anyone qualified to do something useful.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (Minneapolis, MN) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First is a phone Interview, which is pretty simple. Second is an 'Observation Day' which is you coming in for a second interview (which is literally 2 minutes) and then going out with the group and following a specific person along to see what they do. When they think you are ready, they have you start going on your own to try to fundraise at people's door

    Community Organizer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (Washington, DC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied this job online and they called to schedule for an interview the next day in Washington D.C. This position requires you to knock on people's door from 5pm to almost 9pm for membership sign up and donation. I strongly recommend whoever see this no to apply for this position because they pay really low and if you do meet the donation quota that day they will make you feel like a loser. If you are urgently looking for a job then this is something for you as they will take anyone basically.

    Grassroots Management Trainee Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Montclair, NJ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (Montclair, NJ) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I was brought into a room, with another candidate, where an office manager explained what the company does, their goals, and their methods. Afterwards, we (remember, the manager brought two of us into the room) were asked to talk about ourselves. That was the only question asked. Afterwards, the interviewer began flirting with the other candidate. The interviewer then escorted me to the door, shook my hand, and said thank you for coming in. That was the entire interview process.

    I applied for the job on a Thursday. I received a phone call on Friday, where I was asked to come in for an interview. The interview took place on Monday. The whole process, from applying to interview took only 4 days.

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied through college website and got a phone call a few days after. They scheduled a skype interview with me. The interview process was very informal and the questions were simple. I feel that any one who applied can get the job, but they didn't make it clear online that this position is a canvassor position. Confusing job descriptions.
