Current Employee - Americorps-Vista in Santa Rosa, CA

I have been working at AmeriCorps full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Learned a lot of office skills right out of college, also got to have some say in what professional development I wanted.

Cons

Sometimes treated as the help in the office (my specific position within Americorps, may not be universal). VERY low stipend and not allowed to have an additional job.

Advice to Management

Make it easier for us to apply for foodstamps.
