    Pros

    Great organization to work for. Since we built multiple houses a year there were always lots of different events going on. No two days were the same. Liked that it is a Christian based organization. Small staff, more like a family.

    Cons

    Pay wasn't great, but that is typical among non-profits.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay for non-director employees

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

    Pros

    Volunteers 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.

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Don'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.
