    I have been working at Clean Water Action full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co workers. No mornings. You get to talk to tons of people. Great exercise. You learn about environmental issues.

    Cons

    It is a little stressful if you are not good at asking people for money. If you canvas it is a skill you must learn quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Give people more time to acquire skills.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Clean Water Action (West Long Branch, NJ).

    Interview

    A very odd atmosphere; everything had a name. The people were almost too kind and you'll find out that the job is essentially door-to-door sales at extremely inconvenient hours for yourself and the people you bother. The "interview" is just shadowing them on their sales journey, and then they have you go alone (so you're working for them for free for the day). Good job for hippies and old people to do in spare time. Not for anyone qualified to do something useful.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    It's door-to-door sales from noon-8 pm
