Prospective job candidates should dress nice and neat, but not too fancy. Many ReStores operate out of older warehouse buildings, so employees and volunteers will most likely wear jeans, safety shoes/boots and a company shirt. Unless you are applying for an office job, you probably shouldn't dress overly 'professional' for an interview... but at least try to appear presentable.Answered 6 January 2019
How long does it take to get hired from start to finish at Habitat For Humanity? What are the steps along the way?Asked 10 May 2017
The length of the hiring process depends upon the Habitat affiliate, the position available, and the person doing the hiring. You may be asked to come in for more than one meeting or interview. Hiring could take 1 week, and up to 2 weeks. Some candidates may be hired on the spot if the position needs to be filled. Typical interview questions: "Why do you want to work for Habitat? How did you hear about us? Have you ever dealt with Habitat for Humanity before, and in what way? How would you deal with challenges in the workplace? Give examples of customer service/ dispute resolution in your previous jobs..." etc.Answered 6 January 2019
Applied for a position, but was not initially hired. A few months later, the ReStore manager called and asked if I was still interested in coming in for an interview. I went for a brief 30 minute talk, and was hired on the spot. Basic interview questions asked. Process could take longer depending on the situation.Answered 6 January 2019
