    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Grassroots Campaigns (Washington, DC) in June 2019.

    Interview

    Spoke to Adam after I was sent a request for an interview. After chatting on the phone he said I would be great for their organization since I was an ACLU volunteer, and they campaign for ACLU. They also campaign for Planned Parenthood, but said they have met their quota.

    I arrived in the DC office for the interview and met a few people. They had me fill out a brief paper on past employment, then the director talked about the organization. She also pointed out that she was studying for her phD when she started.

    The job we were there applying for (3 people) was to collect donations for Doctors Without Borders. That job is daytime hours. After a few questions I was offered a Leader position in the field to manage a team of people. However, I wanted to campaign for ACLU. The ACLU campaign is from 2pm to 10pm. I was brought into a room and asked to sign more paperwork. A background check and to write any crimes and explain in detail what happened. She was very anxious to get the paperwork. The interview was a little strange, very rushed.

     I was asked if I would be interested in the Leader position ($1 per hour more=$14/hr). I was given an offer to start a 3 day paid training, (we shook hands on it), but was reminded that in order to campaign with them I had to raise $130 in donations first. I left and never heard back from them. After reading the reviews on Glassdoor about going into shady neighborhoods and being fired and yelled at, I thought it might be for the best . No phone call, no email, nothing. Never heard back from them. It was a strange experience. They also checked my Linkedin profile.

    If everyone does well there is extra money like bonuses, but she never went into detail.
