Store Clerk (Former Employee), London, ONDecember 1, 2015
Pros: Mcdonalds across street
I only volunteered for a week, but over all I managed a better organizing skills. Never really came in contact with co-workers much unless I brought boxes of outdated clothes to the back entrance. I didn't find there was any hard part about this job. Most enjoyable part was being asked the same question over and over again from customers.

Sales Associate (Former Employee), Victoria, BCNovember 18, 2015
Pros: Good benefits
Cons: Bad management
I worked at Salvation Army for 2 years. The management was not the best but they did give good benefits. We had to go through raw donations and some of the things we came across were disgusting and half the time they didn't have gloves for us to wear. I even had to pick up a needle that someone had left outside of our store. Obviously I had put gloves on for this, I actually put on about three different pairs.

Camp Counsellor (summer employment) (Former Employee), Oshawa, ONNovember 13, 2015
Pros: I got to be a kid all day at work
Cons: Challenging to deal with some children on a day to day basis
On a typical day I would teach arts and crafts along with bible stories to children of all ages.

I learned how to discipline people differently because everyone has a different mental capacity and it was about finding that balance

Played games with all children on a daily basis
