Poor workplace environment

Management is forever giving second chances to those not showing up for work or disregarding union rules. People always going off on stress leave. Turnover is high so no one gets to know each other. The population they serve have no consistency. Ask yourself why positions are always being posted... a good place to start, but not to stay.

Pros

You’ll never get fired

Cons

You’ll never have a social life or decent pay

A pleasure to work with the team

I enjoyed going to work every day as it was a pleasure to work there . I learned how to price the articles for the store which was very rewarding in my compliments that were given to me . I'd like being part of the Salvation Army team . The hardest part was the heavy heavy lifting .

Pros

Meeting different people everyday

Cons

Extremely heavy lifting like furniture

Decent Kitchen Work

Decent workplace, nothing too strenuous. Low pay but unionized so job security is pretty secure. Management is fair and understanding. Would recommend if you're looking for some part-time kitchen work and you can deal with earlier hours.

Pros

Free lunches, Understanding managament

Cons

Early work hours

Productive and fun workplace

Great place to work, good starting job for students. A typical day at work is steady on cash, good quality product to be put out and meeting lots of new customers, etc. I got cash experience.

Very productive work days. However, extremely poor management and leadreship skills shown by the boss/manager.

At the beginning of a typical day at work, I would begin by sorting clothes which were brought in by donators. Than aftwerwards, go for the first break of the day. Followed by tagging the donations by color coded tags. Once my daily duties were completed, I would than stock the glass case and shelves with the new items.

Pros

Meeting new work employees. Learning brand new skills to take with me to other work places.

Cons

Very, very poor management. The boss was not at all friendly to me, while he was to ALL the other worker.
