    I worked at CALPIRG (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working with CALPIRG provides plenty of hands on communication experience, as well as many chances to improve organization and teamwork skills. The staff is also very friendly and energetic which make them great to work with. Finally, many of the campaigns that CALPIRG organizes are very successful, which provides comfort knowing that the work you put in is actually making a difference.

    Cons

    While working on many of the different campaigns, you will encounter a fair amount of rejection, whether it be from people who do not want to sign your petition or people who will completely ignore you etc. This part of the work can be quite daunting, however, if you can find a way to get past that, your work can still be rewarding. Also, this is an unpaid internship.

    Advice to Management

    It would be nice if some of the volunteer senior officers were paid for all of their efforts, because they put in a very large amount of work and devote much of their free time while still in school.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at CALPIRG (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2016.

    Interview

    Two rounds of interviewing; first interview was with a campus organizer, VERY casual. Second round (if you get invited) takes place at one of their main offices. Two one on one interviews with two staff members, then group (1-3 other people) case interview. Case interview poses a campaign scenarion that they want you to work through. Second round interview typically takes 3 hrs.
