    I worked at Fund for the Public Interest part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    exciting work, fun people, and you get to work for a cause you believe in.

    Cons

    As a canvasser, if you do not meet the quota for 3 days in a row you are let go. This applies regardless of the days conditions. Standing for 8 hours in the pouring rain and can't raise $350 because only 2 people talk to you all day? Sorry, too bad.
    This is also a short term, transient position due to the nature of it's work.

    No benefits provided at this level
