General Helper (Former Employee) – Toronto,ON – 25 September 2013
Good workplace, I enjoyed working with the good people there, it gave me good knowledge of what goes on behind the scenes of this type of store. I enjoyed moving things around and feeling important and that I made a difference in my community. My day at work was short, (volunteer position) , putting away stock sorting stock, ensuring stores cleanliness.
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.

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.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Kelowna, BC – 11 March 2017
Lots of respect from the community for what they do I helped in picking up donations from homes as well as sorting them in the warehouse Staff were of the most kind and friendly variety I have ever met Workplace was calm and enjoyable, took pride in helping the community Helped merchandise items on the floor as well as price them
The boss was running a tight ship but some employees were intolerant and discriminatory towards visible minirities
Shipper and Receiver (Former Employee) – Winnipeg, MB Empress location – 3 February 2017
Typical day would consist of intake of donations and sorting through the donations, Work place environment was good with most employees. The hardest part of the job is the maturity level and discrimination that went on. Most enjoyable was the interaction with the customers and the boss, she was a good boss. The GM told me to watch were I stepped when I raised a concern about the dumping of hazardous products from other people. The GM didn't have the safety of the workers in mind.
