I have been working at AmeriCorps full-time (Less than a year)
real work experience without having to just push papers. it gives you the opportunity to ease into the professional world in a worthwhile field.
low pay, under appreciated in the sites. being an external member of the team can be ostracizing to say the least.
Advice to Management
stronger communication with the site supervisors
I applied online. I interviewed at AmeriCorps.
Applied online and got called for a phone interview a week later. I then had a follow-up interview. It took about 1-2 weeks for them to hear back. I had general interview questions on why I was doing AmeriCorps and to see whether I would be a good fit for the org.
