    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

    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.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

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

    There were three other applicants. We first waited outside, and then we were taken up to the office. We filled out basic paperwork. There was only one interviewer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Greenpeace (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    I had an initial phone screen with the Hiring Manager. I was then brought into the office for group interview with 4 employees. Following this, I was given a special project to work on and present to management in a 2nd-round interview. The whole process took about 3 weeks and was relatively painless. Don't forget, this is Greenpeace. Don't show up in a suit.
