Temporary Hire (Former Employee) – Colorado Springs, CO – December 9, 2014
A typical day at work was talking to the community about awareness of U.S. Senate candidates. I learned a lot from this job; i learned the importance of voting! I was put into management as not only a driver for our teams but as a field manager. I got along great with my co-workers after long days at work we would go for pizza or some drink afterwards. The hardest part of this job was getting the people at the door to become interactive over their political views, also my favorite part of the job!

Hardest part of the job is working, enganging in conversation, and occasionally educating the general popularity of a community about what it is that your campaigning about. If its politics it gets a little bit personal.
Canvaser, Data Entry (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – April 3, 2014
Like previous reviewer here said, lots of shady practices of the business. Poor coordination with bosses and management was apparent from the get go. The person running the interviews "forgot" that I was coming in to interview before I was even hired. Many times the workplace was understaffed and no one of the management were present when needed. The last couple of paychecks were mysteriously unattainable (in the locked office, not filled out, incomplete, ect.) until asked multiple times. Scheduling was done on a private server that I had to call my boss to find out when I was scheduled for even when they said it was open to view. I could go on and on about just how horrible this place was but with the amount of other people finding the same experience it seems redundant
bad organization, shortchanging on paycheck, low pay, irregular scheduling, false advertising of intents
organizer (Former Employee) – connecticut – May 13, 2013
Before you do anything, google Work for Progress aka Fund for the Public Interest. I wish I had done that. You will find many people who did not get paid, did not get the job they were hired to do, This org treats people very unethically. I was an experienced organizer and I worked for them for three days, waited three months for my check. Save yourself and do not get involved with them.
