fun relaxed store

I have been trained in many different areas of operation at the Thrift Store. This keeps me interested. I enjoy helping the customers as well as sorting donations.

Uninspired work environment

This is a money hungry organization. Head office is a mess, full of people who think they are better than the store employees because they sit at a desk all day so don’t expect to receive any basic respect. Store management is haphazard and if you do any work beyond your express responsibilities it will become an expectation. Managers pull new rules out of thin air. The job is mindless and there are decent benefits for full time employees. You accumulate sick days but are penalized for using them.

Pros

Paid sick days/vacation

Cons

Poor management and work environment

Great place to work!

Amazing culture and sense of giving back to the community. Awesome leaders and customers. Need better procedures for constructive discipline of staff, especially long-term ones. Lots of bad habits and lack of coaching leads to difficulty in the workplace that could easily be resolved in handled properly. Overall a wonderful experience and such a gift to society.

Pros

great leadership training

Cons

Need more help to stay organized. Communication can be crossed at times.

Not worth your time or consideration.

Trust me. Straight up garbage fire. You are just a number. It will break your heart. They are so desperate for employees that they hire people with no experience. You are expected to work long hours. Many staff members are on stress leave. Management does everything to not do their job or help out staff.

Pros

Clients

Cons

Everything else.
