"A lot of work but very rewarding if you are passionate and have strong communication skills"

Former Employee - Field Manager in Boulder, CO
Recommends

I worked at Fund for the Public Interest full-time for less than a year

Pros

Commission after you meet fundraising quota, development of communication skills, knocking on doors so you're outside, learning to stay positive through lots of rejection

Cons

Very difficult to get time off, work 55 hours a week (overtime is expected), high turn-over due to difficulty of fundraising door-to-door

Advice to Management

Promote social events outside of work

    Interview

    I was interviewed over the phone. It felt highly commercialized; almost as if I had been pressured to buy a product or something. Left me feeling an odd twinge of shame.
