I worked at Habitat for Humanity full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Learned a lot, no pressure to get things done, worked at my own pace. It helped that I had a construction background, and I got along well with the management. If it were possible to make a living working there I would still be there.

Cons

Construction work- was sometimes difficult. Sometimes I worked alone and they would have a lunch for the volunteers and they would forget to invite me.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

None - the management are a great bunch of people

    Pros

    Christian Nonprofit that works with volunteers and families.

    Cons

    Working 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Habitat for Humanity full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great Mission and Purpose. A good idea when practiced properly.

    Cons

    People in charge of my affiliate simply were very under-qualified and unethical. Some people more interested in self-congratulation than in improving processes and moving forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire qualified people with knowledge and experience of the area they are in charge of. Do not promote attitude of "being wonderful and doing good works." Promote actual work ethic and concentrate on improving the actual business of being a non-profit. Do not merely give lip-service to the mission but embody it.
