Serves the Community Well

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Salvation Army is a good charity and provides a lot of support to individuals in our local community. However, there are few advancement opportunities, no pay increases and very tough working conditions.

Depends on Management

This has the potential to be a great job. As long as you're happy being a bottom feeder, there's very little room to move up. In the end it all depends on the manager you get. I worked in Newmarket and the management was abysmal. It was the difference of being management's favourite person one day, and most hated the next. Favoritism was HEAVY in depending who got hours and who didn't based on arbitrary factors. There's a reason Salvation Army Newmarket is always "urgently hiring". In my 8 months there, 2 people were fired and 4 quit. One person even warned me about the environment in my first week. If you do get hired, God speed.

Left very unhappy

In the beginning I was suppose to excited about working for this organization, I wish they gave there staff more support and a better wage. Staff work with a diverse population with complex diagnosis.

I work with a bunch of very nice people.

It is a fast paced environment, we're busy all day long. I get to work with a bunch of nice people. I also get to meet alot of nice people. No two days are ever the same. New experiences every day.. Always a new challenge.

Fun workplace, met a lot of great people.

Waitressing at the Salvation Army Conference Centre was a great experience overall. I met a lot of great people including the groups that came in as well as my co workers. The hardest part of the job at times was trying to balance a life outside of work during the busy months. The best part of the job was the people, the work atmosphere and helping people everyday and making their experience there as enjoyable as possible.
