    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Greenpeace (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Brief. Fairly simple and laid back. They just want to get a general sense of your personality and gauge what your communication skills are like. You will need to learn to memorize a script and recite it consistantly.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Greenpeace (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Professional yet relaxed atmosphere. Manager explains the job thoroughly to applicants as a group before asking questions one on one. Questions asked were direct and relevant to job description. Definitely not for someone looking to make a medium yearly salary,

    Basically asked us to fill a couple of forms, ask why we want to work for Greenpeace and what drives you to be a better environmentalist. They didn't take a long time to start, and I was interviewed separately after a brief group exchange and questioned about my morals and values.

    Interview

    the interview was fine, but i just don't like how they interpret the environmental issue. also, they made solving the issue way easier then it should be.
    to me, its more like selling an idea of environmental friendly then really helping to save the world

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Greenpeace (Saint Petersburg, FL).

    Interview

    Strange. They gather everyone in a room and then take you separately. I had read a lot about how everyone didn't like working there on Glassdoor and also felt that I would not enjoy the job. It definitely seemed like bad sales job.

    Frontline Canvasser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Denver, CO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Greenpeace (Denver, CO) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Easy, as long as you have confidence and actually know what you're talking abut in regards to social/environmental issues, you should be fine. You reach this underground office, fill out an application on the computer and a piece of paper. Afterward, they talk to you about what Greenpeace is all about and then called in for a 1on 1 interview. More than likely when filling out your application, there will also be someone there doing the same thing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Greenpeace in July 2016.

    Interview

    First, you arrive at the office in the lower level of the building. There is music playing and it is a very relaxed atmosphere. Everyone who works there is dressed very casually (shorts and t-shirts). You sit at a table with other interviewees and you all fill out paperwork then introduce yourselves and explain why you think Greenpeace would be a good fit for you. Then they tell you about current events in the company and tell you about the orientation and give you a job description. After, you are called into an office individually for 1-on-1 interview. The whole process took an hour.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. You get $10 per hour during training period (first week) then you get $15 per hour.

    Short, friendly, interesting. Felt like I would really enjoy working with this supervisor. He asked a few questions to hear why I was interested in the position and then he asked me to give an impromptu sales pitch about an issue I really cared about.
