It really was a fun place to work

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
it was a decent place to work ( houskeeping) Little bit of drama for the long term staff but over all it was alright the only problem was when I caught bed bugs the company could not help me (pay) for pest control so I had to quit and thank God I did soon my whole family has been tortured infested with bed bugs. If they wanted to keep the staff they should help them when they catch bed bugs from there facilities. I will never ever work at any shelter ever again I tried my best to prevent it and it still happened


free lunchs pay went up fast


bed bugs roaches bugs you never seen DRUGS smells

Not too bad a place of work, it could have been better.

A dusty place to work around. A mixed feeling when it comes to co-workers.Salvation Army is a good Institution as we all know, however it could do more by training its management staff.

Good place to work

Good place to work, the hardest part for me was the physical labor of the job as I sustained an injury. The benefits were working with the people there, who eventually became my friends.

Productive and fun place to work.

A typical day at work involves having a positive attitude and a kind heart. I learned to be patient and understanding and compassionate towards others and not to be judgmental. The hardest part of the job is to always remain positive when negative things happen. The most enjoyable part of the job is to be able to see others smile and make people happy as much as I possibly can.


Living life to the fullest.


Bad weather or gloomy weather days.

Caring workplace

A typical day is I clean the dining hall, kitchen, food bank, work on some things during downtime, then clean all of downstairs. I also help as needed.

fun work place with common room, exercise room and dinning room

My work is night shift from 11pm to 7:30 am. I learned to speak nice and good to all the resident and make friends with them. I have to manage my time of doing noisy work for the residents not be disturbed. I love team work so i listened and make suggestion to my co-worker. The hardest part of the job is when nobody helps and you do all the jobs. So its very enjoyable when somebody helps or works with in order to finish job easily.


free foods
