Great Team and Clientele
Shelter Worker/Case Worker (Current Employee) –  Toronto, ON18 March 2017
There is no typical day at work because everyday is different. Everyday is an adventure. It just depends on the crisis at hand on that specific day. I've learned a lot about people and their needs, how important social services for our society. We try to make it light-hearted. We all need a great sense of humour to keep people happy and focused as their lives have been through many obstacles. The hardest part of the job is seeing how a person can be worn down by the life experiences, but it is also when they become the most resilient, which is the most enjoyable part of the job.

Child Care Program Assistance (Volunteer) (Former Employee) –  Toronto, ON10 March 2015
A typical day at this particular job would be checking in with the supervisor on a daily basis.My main duty was to pack food into bags while making sure that the store was kept clean. However, I developed an excellent communication skills by interacting with diverse customer which allowed to accept difference and people's situation in order to better communicate and relate to them. The hardest part of the job was lifting heavy object. sometimes by the end of the day was back and hands would be swollen. However, what I enjoyed about working at this salvation army was seeing a smile on people's faces when they got their merchandise. On Christmas, my co-workers and I would wrap and share gifts (as part of our duty); this made me very happy to see smiles on children faces.
Pros
Free merchandies and food
Cons
Long hours while standing on feet for long period of time
