Very productive work days. However, extremely poor management and leadreship skills shown by the boss/manager.
Sales Representative/Clerk (Former Employee), Brantford, ONJune 4, 2014
Pros: meeting new work employees. learning brand new skills to take with me to other work places.
Cons: very, very poor management. the boss was not at all friendly to me, while he was to all the other worker.
At the beginning of a typical day at work, I would begin by sorting clothes which were brought in by donators. Than aftwerwards, go for the first break of the day. Followed by tagging the donations by color coded tags. Once my daily duties were completed, I would than stock the glass case and shelves with the new items.

Productivity was a major part of your day,,, not much time for Customer service.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Halifax, NSMay 23, 2014
Pros: helping those in need..
Cons: not helping enough in need :(
I was recruited from another company (Penningtons after being there only 4 weeks.). Was literally hired on the spot.!!. and made an Assistant Manager at the store in Bayers Lake… when that store closed out, I managed the Thrift Store in Lower Sackville for 2 years and then moved to the Herring Cove Store for another 2 years… The National Recycling Organization – more... was going through a lot of changes just before I left and there was no room for advancement, as they were taking the bigger jobs to Moncton, and I was not prepared to move at that time.. The best part of the job was the interaction with the customers and helping out and "giving back" which is what the stores were all about.. Getting the merchandise out to the floor in a timely manner was a challenge,, but I love a challenge, and thoroughly enjoyed my time with that Company… – less

Correctional Worker II (Current Employee), Kitchener ONMay 10, 2014
Throughout working at the Salvation army I have learned quite a bit about the Salvation army itself as well as Corrections in Canada. This is a job where working with people is the main priority and helping individuals reintegrate into society is very important. This is a great place for learning about the criminal justice system.

Productive and meaningful work place
Residential Support worker (Current Employee), Whitehorse, YTMarch 18, 2014
Pros: good work atmosphere
Cons: night shift
There is a good cooperation and involvement between the workers.
There is a deeper sense connected with that work as we follow the guidelines of the Salvation Army Mission statement. The work requires a vigilance of mind but also kindness of heart, and I like that. I experienced a good management at my place. I like the opportunity to learn about peoples – more... lives and their problems and winning their trust as we try to help them. The work has a meaning for me as one of ways to better a life of individuals and the community. – less

Christmas Kettle Worker (Former Employee), Port Colborne, ONFebruary 23, 2014
It was a great way to meet and greet people and inform them about the company. A typical day is standing for 4 or more hours talking to people. Co-workers were great, even though we were all at different locations with-in the town of Port Colborne. Standing outside in the elements were hard at time but was still fun.

Volunteer Work (Former Employee), Scarborough, ONFebruary 9, 2014
Pros: free lunch
A typical day is helping out with events and what ever work needs to be done. I've learned the patience of helping others and that good things will come with dedication. The management there was great as well as the co-workers. The job wasn't hard as it is volunteer work. The pastor is a very friendly guy and made jokes here and there making the working – more... environment a fun place. – less
