Field Manager/Canvasser in District of Columbia
on August 7, 2022
I really loved my DC team! Everyone truly cares about making a difference in the world and fighting for justice. Canvassing is a great way to gain experience in the field of activism and make a difference in the community as well as build skills from self-management to public speaking. Tons of opportunities for bonusing and moving into leadership positions. BUT Canvassing is a super hard job, and if you aren't truly passionate about the cause/fighting for change then you will really struggle with the long, late hours, working in all weather conditions, walking all day, and the rude people we run into at the door. If activism isn't your passion, this may not be the place for you.

This job was overall just okay. My employment here was short for some significant reasons. One reason is that the turnover rate is very high. You see people come and go all the time. Another reason is that you have to continuously recite the script and prompt which isn’t very hard but it is mind boggling. Lastly everybody’s door that you approach most people will either look at you like you are some disgusting vermin and tell you to go away or give you an excuse like “sorry we are moving, sick, or etc”. It’s very clear that most people don’t want to be bothered and the ones that say they will donate most likely will not. I’m just here giving you the inside scoop. Apply at your own risk.

Went in hoping to do some good work while in the DMV, ending up working as a door-to-door salesperson for a cause I support but am not heavily invested in. People at the door look at you like a parasite and try their best to brush you off with some of the dumbest excuses imaginable. Turnover is so high they take people off review who haven't met quota for weeks. Directors continuously reiterate the script and have canvassers recite it ad nauseum. Resembles Sorry to Bother You to a scary degree, honestly. The one saving grace is the team there, but again, attrition means you probably won't see many faces stay around. The ones I've met are cool, though.

They are exceedingly encouraging, always enabling one to stay within a positive mindset, and offer useful feedback alongside actionable advice to better one’s performance. This is a very active job, you’re looking to walk about 15,000 steps a day- But for someone looking to stay/become more fit, that’s another positive. The main Con, and this was more so poor timing for all parties involved, was a shift in Field Director. This was a bit jarring as I had only just completed my training before having to wait for the new Field Director to become active.

I had a great time at Grassroots as a field canvasser. I was able to go door to door and helped spread awareness about campaign. I’ve also met some amazing people along the way

-What was a job you held that you enjoyed the most and why? -What issues are you passionate about? -Can you give a brief sample pitch of how you would approach a homeowner when looking for a donation? (they provide training on a specific pitch once you are hired- so this question is most likely just to gage passion on the issue and confidence)
