Hard but Rewarding Work

Staff (Current Employee)
Iowa City, IA

I have been working at Habitat for Humanity part-time for less than a year

ProsI work in the Restore and I love helping customers and talking to donors and getting to know the people in the community. Its really great hearing about the store's role in people's lives.

ConsIts very physical work and can be very exhausting. The store is understaffed and it can get hectic and backed up very quickly.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire more full-time staff.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Great mission

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Habitat for Humanity

ProsFantastic, hands-on mission, clear vision. Enthusiastic people, and great brand awareness among general public.

ConsRelationships are critical, as with any organization, but perhaps more so at Habitat. Developing a professional profile and internal allies are key ingredients to success here, and without them, even the smartest most motivated people will not thrive.

Advice to Senior ManagementNeed greater focus on operational planning to support strategic goals

Small Affliate

Executive Assistant (Current Employee)
Hot Springs, AR

I have been working at Habitat for Humanity full-time for more than a year

ProsChristian Nonprofit that works with volunteers and families.

ConsWorking in a small office is challenging because many different task outside of your job description often get placed on you. Often you are doing two full time positions instead of one.

Advice to Senior ManagementOffice needs to be more efficient. Hire a secretary, instead of having a person do that and marketing/fundraising.

Great affordable housing non-profit to work for

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Habitat for Humanity

ProsClose knit and friendly staff, relaxed environment, you're actually helping out the community by giving a hand up (not a hand out)!

ConsI honestly can't think of any! There are minor communication issues at times, but nothing out of the ordinary for a local non-profit.
