    I worked at Clean Water Action full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -incredibly positive, kind, and passionate staff
    -you'll learn a LOT about NJ environmental policy
    -you do a lot more than canvassing; there are opportunities to do direct lobbying, there are tons of events you can attend, and your Canvass Director can connect you with other parts of the organization so you can branch out in that area as well (social media, Lobbying, etc.)
    -if you're doing this for a summer job, the pay is pretty good! 500 a week, and if you get above your quota for the week, 40% of whatever you make is added to your paycheck
    -personally I loved the hours, because I hate mornings
    -you get to be outside most of the day, so you're not trapped in an office
    -you're on your own for a majority of the day, so there's a lot of independence
    -you'll meet some really great people while canvassing!

    Cons

    -while you do meet some great people canvassing, you also meet some jerks; if you can withstand a couple of people being rude to you every once in a while though, it's totally fine
    -you canvass no matter the weather (unless it's really extreme), so sometimes weather conditions can be a bit rough
    -personally I enjoy canvassing, but you do need to be an extrovert- if you're an introvert or just generally don't enjoy talking to strangers, I wouldn't go for this job

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work! The work environment was my favorite part of the job, you meet a ton of incredible people on the staff

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (Lansing, MI) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Was very easy--some basic personality questions and the like. Enjoyable, relaxed. Not too stressful. Would do again. adding words for length so I can see other reviews
