Habitat For Humanity was great. We framed houses and worked as a team to get the job done. Lots of cutting and shaping lumber with power tools. Learned how to pour concrete in frames for basements in homes.

No employee really works together, they feel unappreciated, not part of any type of team and a lot of talking behind employees backs by store manager. I’ve watched her act like a child with employees when she doesn’t get her own way and almost every employee pays for it except for one.
Office politics was pathetic to say the least and I guess still is considering what has gone on in the last couple months. Nothing ever gets done by ED about the goings on....some employees have spoke up. I was lucky enough just to decide not go back for my own sanity...as a male that should say a lot
Pros
Great organization
Cons
Poor management, back stabbers

Horrible back breaking tasks, management never has your back. Some staff members are extremely rude and childish yet nothing ever gets done about them. Your hours are all over the place, and they pay is garbage
Pros
Zero
Cons
Literally the whole company, and work place

no recognition for the hard work. lazy co-workers who have no clue how to run a business. safety is of no concern to management. also, management is blind to the daily operations of locations

Due to it being a non-profit, completing tasks in a timely fashion, relative to other construction companies, is somewhat difficult. Often looking for donated time or materials often hampers production.

I worked as a volunteer on site, I got to learn some new skills the volunteers were very helpful. It's good to be able to help people to have a decent place to live in and Habitat is a pathway to gather volunteers who like to do something for their community.
Pros
An excellent goal, witch helps people to have a decent place to live in.
Cons
the site work needs better coordination.

Do not trust management, the volunteers were great people to work with. If you like cleaning junk, this is the job for you. You will be responsible for assigning jobs to the volunteers and keeping yourself busy. Basically cleaning old toilets and wiping down used items with a wet rag. ( no gloves )

Working as a cashier here was very relaxing, I was in charge of coordinating pickups and deliveries, as well as cash involvement as a cashier. Also helped to put stock out on floor when I was not busy at cash.

I met some really nice people volunteering for Habitat. I really like the ethos of the company, and it is really great to be able to give back to the community. I have always had an interest in construction, and how houses are build and working in the shop was very insightful and a fun experience. I really enjoy working with my hands and helping out.
Pros
Free Lunches
Cons
none really

This is not your typical construction job as it is more about building homes for those less fortunate. It did feel really good knowing that hen you go to work you are helping build a home for a family who needs help. The construction moves quick as any construction site would. Sometimes you take a break from the build site and help out at the Habitat for humanity re store where you help accept donations.

Habitat is an amazing cause and a lot of hard work. People have a negative stigma for the Restore and that was the hardest part for sure. Also not a ton of room for advancement.

Was enjoyable but at times hard to find a task to get done. They needed more heavy lifters instead of shelf organizers so it was hard to find things to do.
