Good hours, good work environment, odd scheduling policies
Community Donation Center Ambassador (Former Employee) –  New Minas, NS18 February 2018
The company was able to offer a good number of work hours, pension and bonuses, but they had odd staff scheduling practices. They scheduled staff based on the previous month's donation count rather than the current month's expected count, so we were understaffed at Halloween and other times like right after Christmas, when there were annual expected increases in staffing requirements, which would not be reflected in the previous month's numbers. This method of scheduling policy was a little odd and sometimes unsafe if one person was working alone in receiving and expected to deal with extremely heavy or overly large items alone while other backup staff were busy working in the other areas of the store.
Pros
Hours, Pension, Bonuses, Work Environment
Cons
Scheduling Policies

Unique job, but got repetitive quickly
CDC Ambassador (Former Employee) –  Pembroke, ON7 February 2018
Each day was the same as the last. Come in, get donations from outside that were left overnight, sort them, clean, help other stations (ripping covers off books, removing covers from vinyls, hanging hangers), wait for donors, sort their donations, give them discount cards/add to them, test electronics/lighting received, sort / organize everything, clean, repeat till end of shift.
Pros
donations helped different funds (i.e. Diabetes association, mental health, etc.)
Cons
really repetitive, and hazardous with some items, (needles in pockets, stains with un-known origins, etc)
