I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Working America (Philadelphia, PA) in Apr 2016

Interview

It was very easy to talk to the interviewer, Jihad, so the process was pretty simple and direct. It did not last too long and was very conversational. One major thing is that the three p's are stressed (but not actually carried out in the office environment). The three p's for the office are to keep it Professional, Progressive, and Positive, so if you go in with that kind of attitude, it should seal the deal.

Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Working America (Seattle, WA) in Aug 2015

Interview

It was very kind. The management are very nice, friendly people with high emotional intelligence and an amazing track record of experience. I walked into the office not knowing what to expect, and it was quite welcoming. After the first stage of interviewing there is the "observation day" process, where if they believe you can potentially do the work, you go and watch a canvasser in the field (usually a field manager or higher) and then do it yourself for an hour to be evaluated on whether they would like to hire you or not. Quite a straightforward process and felt empowered the entire time.
