Manager, Operations (Former Employee) – Orangeville, ON – 15 August 2017
The company that is supposed to be so "humane" really treats it's very few employees poorly not paying overtime, expecting long hours without compensation. They hire good management to come in and fix everything that is broken, get lots of volunteers that do the work for free and then fire the managers that got the job done. Great strategy! No thanks.
Stock Clerk (Former Employee) – Charlottetown, PE – 18 July 2017
I was mostly doing manual work there and I learned how to properly clean and manage the stock the staff there were friendly and helpful and the environment was easygoing and cooperative. The hardest part of the job was having to handle heavy objects like fridges and heavy doors. What I enjoyed most about working there was the feeling of being busy doing something instead of being at home not doing anything.
Learning about being a stock clerk
I was not provided with a payed job there after months of volunteering
great place to work but lay you off after 6 months

Volunteer (Current Employee) – Brampton, ON – 2 June 2017
There are a lot of different things to do at the Habitat for humanity and the Restore. I started volunteering at the Restore and I had no problems working there. There are a lot of students volunteering, I found the people there are great and a lot of fun to work with. It a nice environment to work in and to gain experience.
Go to the build side of the business not the Restore
Manager, Receiving/shipping (Former Employee) – Regina, SK – 26 May 2017
The volunteers were great but the management was very inexperienced and had no concept of retailing. Working conditions were hot in the summer and cold in the winter. The build side of the business would be the place to go but would avoid the Restore side of the business. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to know the volunteers.
