The Salvation Army Employee Review
Job work-life balance
Salary/Benefits
Job security/advancement
Management
Job culture

Management appears to have no retail experience but expecting staff to understand the philosophy (prayer based retail).

Disorganized management team, vague and questionable orientation/start up experience, terrible communications, gossip and second hand information encouraged, far too grounded in magic thinking and prayer.

Pros

Punctual payments

Cons

Disorganized and poor communication from management

Very supportive and caring staff/management

I enjoyed working at the Trenton ON store until it was closed down in October 2019. The environment was friendly and instructions were easy to understand. We worked with volunteers, some with challenges, some getting work experience and some doing community work. The manager was fantastic and very patient, especially when there was stress with a worker or customer. We were all very sad when the store closed but still get together for coffee and catch up.
