    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (Ann Arbor, MI) in May 2008.

    Interview

    Very laid-back office culture; no premium on professionalism here. I felt over-dressed for the interview wearing just khakis and a nice shirt. I don't think they even glanced at my resume.

    Pay was based on whether you hit your fundraising target or not. Virtually everyone gets the job (at least based on how many people I saw interviewed compared to hired), but you either succeed quickly and meet your targets or you're gone in a few weeks. Even the veterans eventually hit rough spots, miss their goals, and are laid off. Do not expect this to be a long-term gig unless you are especially gifted, in which case you would make a lot more money in a more professional, organized business atmosphere.
