Great place to work
Cook (Current Employee), Barrie, ONApril 17, 2015
Pros: free lunches
Cons: hard to organize donations
a typical day is a serve a lot of people free food. I learned a lot about compassion for all people. Management is excellent, my co-workers are great. The hardest part of the job is not giving everything we have away to the people who come to us for help, moderation. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping people.

Underappreciated and underpaid
Housekeeper (Former Employee), Pine Lake, ABApril 11, 2015
Cons: Underappreciated, overworked
Although I met great people I felt severely underappreciated for the hard work and long hours I put in. I was not made aware of many important facts such as my shift times (I assumed I worked until I was done, apparently I only got paid until 5 however actually worked until 11pm sometimes after starting at 8am) my partner was consistently late and faced no penalties. Overall wasn't worth the great people I met. I was unpaid for awhile due to an error they could not fix.

A great work and learning experience
Volunteer Work (Former Employee), Hamilton, ONMarch 29, 2015
Pros: volunteer hours and the acknowledgment
Cons: work load
At each of these places, i was able to improve my job skills and get some new ones such as multicultural sensitivity and technical skills . They both had very friendly and cooperative management teams which i learnt a lot from. The hardest part was trying to balance school work with it and also coming to terms with the work load which i eventually succeed in doing. overall, every other thing was very enjoyable.

Youth Mentor/Volunteer (Former Employee), Toronto, ONJanuary 31, 2015
Pros: free snacks
Cons: long hours
A typical day at the Salvation army would be picking up kids after school, feeding them, helping them with their homework and then have fun after. Learning how to manage my time in order for me to help the kids has helped me a lot. Since there was no hard part in this volunteer experience I enjoyed every minute of helping the children and speaking with them personally.

Safe and welcoming enviroment with supportive and careing people working with you and for you.

It is one of the top ranking shelters. My time their was amazing and never wasted. They are good people doing good things.

Most challenging part of the job is sorting quality items through large amounts of donations in less time and pricing them correctly.

Most enjoyable part of the job is meeting and greeting customers, interacting with them and giving them information on products and items. Selling the best items to customers and making them happy.

Great Mission, bad execution
Niagara Falls Retail and Donation Centre Manager (Current Employee), Niagara Falls, OnDecember 9, 2014
Pros: work with some great passionate people.
Cons: high expectations do not equal low salaries given out.
Nice to help the less fortunate and that can be rewarding. But not seen enough, and the business organization of this company loses it's mission focus, and concentrates mostly profits.
