I have been working at Emmaus Community full-time for more than a year
Pros – They (Emmaus) do provide, you with a full belly, on suite room, roof over your head, make new friends and work at the 2 shops that, have the procides, going to a charity for the homeless. finally what ever qualifacations that you do here, will help you with jobs else where in the future, by adding them to your C.V.
Cons – The down side to Emmaus is that, you might not over all,like the other staff and commanions, here, i think overall thats a small price to pay.
Advice to Senior Management – The only advise to management, is that there quite poor in the communitive side of getting the message over to the commanions, and little things that happin negitively at the shops, and community, it could improve, basically i think these are things that happin in most places of living and working.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

I worked at Emmaus Community
Pros – There is a lot of satisfaction in working with the residents. Knowing that your work impacts real people and makes them feel more secure and happy is a great part of the job.
Cons – The management is very hands-on, very in-your-face about small decisions. They don't think twice before reprimanding you publicly, and are very easily threatened by suggestions and insight coming from their employees.
Advice to Senior Management – Find some way to pull away and trust the employees you've given responsibility, or leave the management to a few individuals who have earned your trust. You will find that the relationships the residents build with your employees are positive ones, and that there are many ways to accomplish small tasks.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
