Canvasser Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Accepted Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

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

Interview

You get a call, and they have you meet at their office. Without really telling you what it is you are interviewing for until after you get there. Once you get there they finally give you what the job would be, and that if hired, (which it seems they hire almost everyone who walks in there, because several people I walked out with also got the job.) will have three training days to make a certain amount of money, or will be let go. You are then interviewed one-on-one.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grassroots Campaigns (Washington, DC) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Brief information session with some of the history of the company, followed by individual interviews with a Director. The only real way to screw up the interview was if you're anti-LGBTQ or women's equality.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grassroots Campaigns.

    Interview

    Walked in, waited a while. Had a group interview. Then broke off into individual interviews. Got a call back when I got home. Really easy as long as you legitimately care about the organizations Grassroots works with.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grassroots Campaigns (Boston, MA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Grassroots used misleading advertisement to hire new people, they will essentially hire and interview anyone.

    The interview consisted of some questions with regards to your values, and why you were politically enthused about the causes they were fighting for

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grassroots Campaigns (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interview was very straightforward. The Canvass Director first explains the organizations Grassroots is partnering with and their goals. He/She also explains the salary, requirements, and the hiring process (aka, the trial time before you actually get hired). Then, they call you a personal interview. It really depends on your past experiences. If you have had leadership roles, are good at communicating, and show passion, the interview is rather short.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grassroots Campaigns (Boulder, CO) in September 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed and hired all in one day and it was very rushed. The interview at first seemed very sketchy since they were located in a temporary office without much in the way of furniture and I was worried at what I got myself into. I was interviewed separately, but there were two of us at the office to be interviewed for the same position. We were both hired.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Grassroots Campaigns (Sacramento, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was not told that there would be a group interview to begin with, which took about 30 minutes mostly because we were waiting on a meeting to be over so interviewer could use the office they were in. My individual interview finally happened over an hour after I arrived for what I thought would not take that long. They answered my questions and offered me a job on the spot for 10.50 an hour. I really did this as a practice interview as I really did not want to do this job. It will work great for college kids.

    Interview Questions

    • What cause am I most passionate about.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, 10.50, take it or leave it.

    Interview

    - easy going people, there was not a lot of questions just basically as long as you were sort of talkative and outgoing they would probably hire you
    - Short interview at the office, you can get started working the next day if you want or even right after the interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Grassroots Campaigns (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied online through their website. A few days later, someone called on the phone and asked about previous canvassing experience. He also mentioned the nonprofits that they campaigned for (at the time, ACLU and Planned Parenthood) and asked if I was interested. I was invited for an in-person interview a few days later. In person, they gave a paper application to fill out. Someone gave an intro on what Grassroots is about, talked about expectations/quotas, etc. There were multiple people there, but interviews were short and individual.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Grassroots Campaigns (New York, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    They literally hire you if you look attractive. You don't really have to juice anything because they all know what you will be really doing, canvassing. You're basically going to beg people for their cash and you have a certain quota you have to fulfill or you're fired.
