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.

Pros: working woth children, great experiance, wonderful people
Cons: had to bus it home
Safe and welcoming enviroment with supportive and careing people working with you and for you. At the Salvation Army it is their job to provide women and children who have dealt in abusive situations, with shelter, food, clothes, and most importantly support and a new start. It is one of the top ranking shelters. My time their was amazing and never wasted. They are good people doing good things.

Flexible Management/Good and hard working team

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.

Alright place to work
Volunteer Experience (Former Employee), Ajax, ONNovember 8, 2014
Pros: co workers
Cons: long hours
A typical day here is organizing the back room product, making sure the store is clean, setting up merchandise in the right places, helping customers, so on.. Learned how to deal with rude customers, and how to organize fast and efficiently. Most of co-workers made it fun to be there. Wouldn't say there was anything hard, just a bit boring at times when you finish things early..
