Warm and homey feel

My day at work was spent sorting clothes according to colour code and removing designated apparel from the sales floor. The work was a tad repetitive, but working for a non-profit organization is always a good thing to do.

Pros

Sufficient lunch breaks

Cons

Repetitive tasks

Recycling is creativity

A typical day at Salvation Army includes a fast-paced environment in selling merchandise while focusing on quality. In my whole 20 years of experience, I have learned that reinvention is key. You have to categorize quickly what we are displaying for the day. Creativity is essential and quick judgement is required. I was very sad to hear that my store was closing in February but I have been actively seeking job opportunities at this company. One of the most enjoyable part of the job was giving a second life to a second-hand item to someone.

Great place to work and volunteer

Enjoyed the interaction with the customers. Sorting was educational and rewarding. Never know what you would come across. The staff are great! Always on hand if you needed help.
