Casual and friendly work environment built to support customers and volunteers
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Brampton, ON – 16 March 2017
The atmosphere was always very welcoming and the people were oftentimes very helpful and welcoming to both customers and volunteers alike. Working as a volunteer is pretty simple, as you just need to go around and assist customers or the staff as they need it, generally consisting of providing information about the products or how to donate, or labour in order to take in new donations or reorganize the store. I learned some useful customer service and organizational skills as a result. The management was very nice and supportive, save for a couple of the higher ups who were always too stiff and demanding, but generally the workplace was a fun place to be. There aren't many difficulties in this job since it's all simple tasks that you can get used to quickly, so nothing very strenuous.
Choose your own break times, friendly staff, usually polite customers
Some rude people in management, very tiring labour at times
