    accessible but difficult

    Apr 18, 2022 - Canvasser 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    hiring process was straightforward and fast training was similarly easy

    Cons

    if you aren't a people person then canvassing can be challenging canvassing on the street involves starting conversations with random strangers for hours at a time. they wont always like you, or what you're canvassing for, and they'll be eager to waste your time and emotional well-being. you do not get to choose what you're canvassing for. sometimes its bull, sometimes its a good cause, its questionable how much money gets back to the non profits involved in the first place.

    Pros

    Easy hiring process and training. Work from home is a huge plus.

    Cons

    You will have to talk to a lot of people. Some of them will not want to talk to you and you will just have to brush it off and move on to the next call.
