I worked at Working Families full-time
Canvassing with the Working Families party is exciting work. Training is adequate and takes up the first half of the day in the office, then the second half involved going out in the field and going door to door. I enjoyed getting to move around and talk to people all day more than sitting in an office.
Sometimes we went to sketchy neighborhoods, the staff didn't seem to know anything about D.C. neighborhoods (they were from New York).
Advice to Management
Allow canvassers familiar with the area to give advice to supervisors on where to canvass.
Interview was fairly straightforward. Canvass director will get to know you and ask what you are passionate about. From there, the interviewer will ask if/what you know about Working Families. It was a pretty relaxed and welcoming experience. I received an answer about being hired then and there.
