Good organization and a good cause. The employee who ran the volunteer orientation was nice and easy to talk to. I would have to agree with the previous review about management and the specific worker. The manager cleans and is in the office a lot, instead of taking care of other important store issues. The warehouse worker acts like a gatekeeper for everything else. They each seem to play captain, but that’s how it is. Everything else seems to be okay.
You also get to meet other volunteers who share their knowledge and experiences with you. Working with these volunteers can make projects easier to complete. Tasks vary from day to day. Sweeping, cleaning, building furniture and cabinets, repair work, helping take stuff off the truck and so on. There are occasional break periods where you can sit and chat.
This place was a goldmine of stuff on occasion. At the Restore you can buy new and used tools, hardware, and cool return items from the big box stores.
