Grassroots Campaign, Inc.1507 21st Street Sacramento, California United States of America
Grassroots Campaign, Inc. which purports to claim is a leading progressive liberal campaign is just another money making scheme out to make money and prey on idealistic and naive college students.
I applied for a job via their ads they post on Sacramento News and Review and called for Carmen and she set up an interview on Monday at 11am. When I went there the interviewer, whose name was Jared, was clearly high on drugs because he was figgity, nervous, unshaven, not making direct eye contact with any of the applicants and using a lot of hand gestures throughout his spiel. He then goes to mention that this is a "non-political" fundraising event and we go in front of grocery stores asking for donations.
The interview itself lasts about two to three minutes. The two questions they ask is 1. Have you ever been in a leadership role? and 2. If a customer coming out of a store seems interested in our campaign but doesn't have any money or is short on cash, what do you say to them to get them to give you money? A week later, I was called back for a second job interview and this time with a fellow named Jeff. He asked the same questions that Jared asked me and told me they usually give an applicant 48 hours to notify him whether he has the job or not (they never called and this is despite the fact there were only five applicants).
The reason why this organization is a fraud and con game is they keep changing their causes every month. First, it was supposedly to help elect Barack Obama. Then it was to feed the starving children in Haiti. Now it is a grassroots campaign to overthrow Proposition 8. These people sure keep changing their grassroots campaign and tell tall tales to sucker people into these worthless panhandling jobs! If you see any ads on craigslist or SN&R ignore it.
