I worked at SEIU full-time (More than a year)
Supportive and highly motivated by their mission with complete devotion and innovative approaches
Hours can be long - you work until the job is done by your choice and because everyone else does also
I applied online. I interviewed at SEIU (Chicago, IL).
First interview was over the phone, which went well (other than the fact that the interviewer did not call at our scheduled time and we had to reschedule, costing me unpaid time off work). Then, they invited me to a 5 hour group interview with 18 other people in the running for their "handful of positions." There was a quick introduction from everyone, and then they did this thing where everyone had to stand up and answer one question that has absolutely nothing to do with organizing or labor. Just one question, with one minute to answer. The day included a lot of information about SEIU and basics of an organizing house call. They don't hesitate to tell you that (ironically) you will be working ridiculous hours with little time off (up to 21 days without a day off, 12-14 hour days), but it's "the nature of the work." Somewhere in there is a short writing exercise where you write a paragraph about your strengths and weaknesses. The last thing is a "one-on-one" interview which literally lasted 2 minutes. They just asked me if I wanted to elaborate on my writing exercise and if I had any questions for them. Oh, and when I got my rejection email, they called me by the wrong name :)
