a challenging position providing a true learning experience.
Manager (Current Employee) – 10 Jordan Crescent Charlottetown – 26 September 2013
A typical day would begin with necessary office work before store opening.The day was then spent coaching and assisting staff in the day to day operations. Though sometimes challenging, working with both paid staff and volunteers from many different backgrounds with many different personalities taught me how to recognize and utilize the strengths of each particular individual to my advantage. The hardest part of the job would be the restrictions involved with working with a charity. The most enjoyable part of the job was implementing ideas and seeing positive results!
Secretarial Assistant/Receptionist (Former Employee) – Toronto, ON – 26 April 2017
Everyone wanted you to succeed at your job, staff was very friendly and helpful. I got a better understanding of how a non-profit company works and the extent to which people's donations/contributions can go a long way in assisting people in need.
Cashier/Merchandiser (Former Employee) – Calgary, AB – 24 April 2017
My time at Salvation Army was a positive experience for the most part, although the organization of management seemed unfair or disorganized at times. I have learned that thrift stores are all about compromise with customers and that I should always ask my supervisor/the manager if I am uncertain about what to do in a certain situation.
Collector (Former Employee) – Hamilton, ON – 13 April 2017
I did this food drive roughly about 3 years in a row to get those hours i needed for school. Once again, i worked with my close friends, we collected food, and one year we sorted the food out that came in.

Volunteer (Former Employee) – Markham, ON – 2 April 2017
The overall workplace of salvation army was mediocre. The boss at the time was easy going in the sense that he did not care about anything. He would treat the donations poorly and on occasion would say questionable things about people.
