Super Friendly People doing Tough, but Important Work
Field Representative / Canvasser (Former Employee) – Denver, CO – April 17, 2017
The people at the Fund for the Public Interest are passionate, energetic, open-minded and incredibly friendly. I could not imagine better colleagues. The people we interacted with in the community, however, ranged wildly. Since we were canvassing, we were met with anything from excitement to disdain, and the job could often leave one feeling emotionally drained. Having to adhere very strictly to the script, which we practiced every day, could also be a little awkward in certain situations. Considering the place was a non-profit, the pay was pretty decent (around $11/hr), but the work was also full-time. The Fund makes a point of supporting important, worthwhile causes, so if you don't mind the physical and emotional exertion, this can be a very meaningful and wonderful job.
Independence, good cause, community interaction, great colleagues
Physically tiring, emotionally tiring
