    Canvasser Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

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

The training period was fast-paced and alot of information to process in one day.
