    As a volunteer, I was not offered any challenging or even interesting work.

    I worked at American Red Cross

    Pros

    Helping others; Red cross is a great organization; much of the work that the organization as a whole provides is worthwhile.

    Cons

    There are very few opportunities for volunteers. I offered a very skilled work history, but they had a difficult time coming up with volunteer jobs that could utilize my skills. The type of volunteer jobs they had available were such that anyone could do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think about placing skilled volunteers in positions that will keep them interested, challenged, and coming back to volunteer more.
