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!
CASHIER (Former Employee) – London, ON – 13 June 2017
Was A wonderful place to feel you were making a difference. Just wish that you had a chance to try different stations instead of just sorting cloths. Unless you were friends with Management you stayed in one place and didn't get to rotate any where.
Kettle Coordinator (Former Employee) – Lindsay, ON – 7 June 2017

It is a good place to get community service done, the staff there were very friendly and they will accept any who come there. If you are a student in need of doing some community service hours to get your resume, this would be a great place to do so.

Store Associate (Current Employee) – Montréal, QC – 17 May 2017
A lot of organizing, but other than that everyone is cool. One thing I dislike is the place itself. The place is so duty with too much dust. No major sweeping is ever made. Every day is dusty. We could get sick one day.
On-Call Cook (Current Employee) – Brantford, ON – 28 April 2017
Decent workplace, nothing too strenuous. Low pay but unionized so job security is pretty secure. Management is fair and understanding. Would recommend if you're looking for some part-time kitchen work and you can deal with earlier hours.
