    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Penn Environment.

    Interview

    You need to submit a writing sample and a questionnaire. Easy phone interview. Was asked for second interview which was much more difficult. Ultimately did not get offered position after final interview. They tell you they will train you when you get hired but then ask you questions during interview that you would encounter after hiring.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Penn Environment (Philadelphia, PA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Well, I came across this opportunity and decided to give it a shot. In the interview first we got an introduction of PeenEnvironment, and then the function of Canvasser. It was not an easy job, as you are supposed to come up door to door and talk to people, and get them agree with the idea you are trying to sell.

    Interview Questions

    • What if someone don't agree that we should protect the environment   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Penn Environment (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2009.

    Interview

    You call them on the phone and ask for whoever the flyer says to ask for. That person won't be there because it's just a way to see where people are actually responding to the flyers. They ask you about yourself and then ask you to come in for an interview that day or the next day. You go in for the interview with a bunch of other people and a director tells you about what they do. Dress nicely because they pick out people that they want first to actually interview in the back room where they'll ask you how you would deal with a person that wants to know how their contributions would help the cause. You get the job right there and show up for your observation day the next day. Everyone else is sent home and told they will be in touch.

    Interview Questions

    • What would you say to a person wanting to know how their contributions would help?   Answer Question
