You have to do your job ignoring the top management or they will tear you apart, lack of honesty and integrity is very evident. Hours are good and so is the benefits

Productive Organization

Am working at Salvation Army Thrift Store as a volunteer, I always make sure I concentrate and achieve on the tasks given to me while on duty. I learnt about client service, strategic thinking on sorting stocks, and the management administration of Salvation Army are awesome and are effective on planning to meet the organization goals. The organization is a friendly atmosphere where one can easily learn and assimilate fast on a tasks assigned. I love my job because everyone works as a team and our aims and objectives is achieved

Good Place to Work Seasonal for Christmas 6 weeks.

Great People to work for. I love the hours I get to & I like working extra shifts too. The Store Managers are great too. The Person that I take over from or Relieves me is on time. I will stay if someone doesn't show up.

A place worth returning to.

A good establishment, the staff are very nice and welcoming people. Also for a store that has a lot of handed in items the staff make it look very clean and very organized.

Fun in the workplace

On a typical day I would teach arts and crafts along with bible stories to children of all ages. I learned how to discipline people differently because everyone has a different mental capacity and it was about finding that balance Played games with all children on a daily basis


I got to be a kid all day at work


Challenging to deal with some children on a day to day basis
