    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Fund for the Public Interest full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great supportive environment, very team oriented and fun. Good for young people. Will teach you how to take a No and bounce back. Great for people trying to learn and develop selling themselves. Great causes.

    Cons

    They say they are "Non-Partisian" but have been very partisian in my time here. Will offer you the Field Manager position from the interview, but leave out that you have to meet certain quotas to earn it. The office is run by recent college grads and this is many of their first jobs. They leave out a lot of requirements and information relevant to your bonus pay and incentives.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fund for the Public Interest.

    Interview

    It was super easy. I think as long as you give a somewhat educated answer, they will offer you the position. They just want to hire people. However, take what they tell you about the job with a grain of salt. They aren't entirely honest about everything.
