Working with volunteers is great, if you have the patience and leadership skills.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

ProsVolunteers tend to be all hyped up and super eager to build, you have to put the brakes on them or your job site will spin out of control. Had a great time teaching people, everybody was terrific to work with at the site.

ConsThe management is great at raising money, getting volunteers and trying to help you. However, they don't know alot about construction and can make you a little crazy at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't get hung up on how long the building process takes, your working with rank amatuers for the most part. Also, however bad you think the house is that you bought to rehab, well it's really six times worse. Trust your project managers more, they have a clue about what they are doing.

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