What Employees Say
I worked at CALPIRG full-time for less than a year
- Great opportunity to learn people/speaking skills - Fairly easy to advance from canvasser to field manager or director - Teaches you how to be persistent after so many rejections
- Low pay, no benefits - Some people are extremely rude to canvassers - Emotionally exhausting to seem cheerful to strangers all the time - Having to work outside in the heat/cold/rain/dark often... alone
Advice to Management
- Allow people who've graduated to work part-time - Pay your canvassers and directors more!! - Adjust canvassing hours to correlate with the daylight -- as a young woman canvassing alone in... unfamiliar neighborhoods I felt uncomfortable so many times just doing my job.
