Poor Leadership False Promises Deplorable Conditions

Store Manager (Former Employee)
Indianapolis, IN

ProsPros? Well I suppose if you have no other choice or do drugs (I was never tested) then come on down.

ConsMisguided management, poor or no training. They'll hire you in with all these grand dreams and fill your head with their "mission". It's a bunch of baloney. Lied to everyday by Senior Management.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou question why your stores are doing poorly, you question why your Manager turnover rate is high...it's simple. Capital investment. Invest in your stores and your managers. Don't hire someone in at one wage and expect them to stick around for 40% less an hour and crappy shift work less than 40 hours. Don't tell them their managers when the only thing they manage is the Cash till. If you want cashiers then Hire Cashiers, if you want Managers then hire managers.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Wonderful environment with supportive coworkers and passion for community.

    Human Resources Generalist (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Salvation Army part-time for less than a year


    Pros: There are supportive supervisors and managers who are willing to answer any questions you… Cons: The cons as a part-time employee includes no benefits and no paid time off (PTO). Also,… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
