    I worked at AmeriCorps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free prescriptions from NCCS,
    The state VISTA supervisor for my location was very helpful when I had an issues with my assignment and assigned organization
    Payment schedule was always on time
    Gained some very useful skills for future use

    Cons

    low pay
    lack of direct supervision from upper levels to funded organizations
    hard to fit in with non VISTA employees because of rules and stipulations of being a VISTA member
    not being able to have a second job made it hard to live with the low pay (I couldn't afford to move to my location site so I commuted 113 miles round trip per day)

    Advice to Management

    please research the organizations requesting funding a little more
    visit agencies that NCCS money is going to
    provide more direct supervision to site supervisors

    I worked at AmeriCorps full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you studied hard, graduated from college, and have a pretty good resume, you can work here for significantly less than the minimum wage for a year, if you're lucky, before being cast back into the "job" market.

    Cons

    No actual responsibility or institutional support, with rare exceptions. They tax your end-of-serivce stipend.

    Advice to Management

    Put your bodies upon the gears...
