Poor understanding of actual business world

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Detroit, MI

I worked at Habitat for Humanity full-time for more than a year

ProsGreat Mission and Purpose. A good idea when practiced properly.

ConsPeople in charge of my affiliate simply were very under-qualified and unethical. Some people more interested in self-congratulation than in improving processes and moving forward.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire qualified people with knowledge and experience of the area they are in charge of. Do not promote attitude of "being wonderful and doing good works." Promote actual work ethic and concentrate on improving the actual business of being a non-profit. Do not merely give lip-service to the mission but embody it.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

It's not a great place to work

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Pensacola, FL

I worked at Habitat for Humanity full-time for less than a year

ProsThis review has to do with the Pensacola affiliate. The staff are friendly and great to work with. They are professional and generally know what they are doing.

ConsThis review has to do with the Pensacola affiliate. Unless you are in upper management, your salary is low enough that you likely qualify for their program. Also, there is virtually zero accountability - as long as you don't question upper management, you are good to go.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe board of directors need to take a thorough look at all aspects of the affiliate. Low morale and inattentive management make this an extremely frustrating place to work with high turnover.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
