Great staff and engaging work environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Team members were extremely collaborative and intent on delivering the best customer service. Management was friendly, sociable, and receptive to team member concerns/questions/comments. High-stress environment can make for difficult and exhausting work days, however. Overall, a wonderful job.

Good part time job

I would suggest this as a good part time job for students, or a good job for someone who needs one. The store I worked at wasn't the best with hours, but I'm sure that's different at every store. The job is simple, no matter what job you have. Cashier, CDC or production, none of it is difficult. The employees were the best part, but once again differs store to store. You get paid minimum wage and get a raise every year.

Unique job, but got repetitive quickly

Each day was the same as the last. Come in, get donations from outside that were left overnight, sort them, clean, help other stations (ripping covers off books, removing covers from vinyls, hanging hangers), wait for donors, sort their donations, give them discount cards/add to them, test electronics/lighting received, sort / organize everything, clean, repeat till end of shift.

Pros

donations helped different funds (i.e. Diabetes association, mental health, etc.)

Cons

really repetitive, and hazardous with some items, (needles in pockets, stains with un-known origins, etc)

Typical Job!

Wasn't too bad of a job. Didn't get trained at all though... Other than that a decent, normal job! Worked every weekend, long hours after school- Good if your looking to make lots of money with lots of hours.

Pros

Get to see quirky customers. You get 50% of EVERYTHING.

Cons

You have to wait three days before you can buy a newly arrived item.

Managers and co-workers nice, job sucked

Work felt more like a janitors job most of the time Some people who donated were rude items donated were mostly dirty, partly destroyed, disgusting trying to keep bags and boxes organized on carts were OK but after many, many donations things get crowded. Good thing was when working with another person, things went faster. Lots of things change day to day, like tasks, acceptable/ non-acceptable items, etc When nothing else to do, SWEEP, DUST, CLEAN and log it

Pros

co-workers were pretty awesome

Cons

shifts tend to vary in length, changes happen frequently, more janitorial then other things
