I have been working at Salvation Army full-time for more than a year

Pros

It's a non-profit organization and you really do get to help others.
Opportunities for advancement.
Rules and requirements are easy to follow and very straight-forward.

Cons

Some of your co-workers have just as many problems as the people you help.
Pay is low.
Management is sometimes reactional and displays power thrusting.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think passed the conversation taking place - do not react to what one person says; do your own investigation. Once rules and policies are put in to place - follow them.

    I have been working at Salvation Army full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good pay, great environment, excellent benefits. Sundays off

    Cons

    Ever changing schedule. Flexible schedule almost always works to the employer's advantage

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardized training in ALL aspects of training. Too much is done without formal written training material. Training manual would be most helpful, if you desire stores to be run in certain ways

    I worked at Salvation Army part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Friendly and supportive environment. The office had a casual atmosphere, and the management was encouraging and confidence-inspiring. There was always coffee and snacks there in the morning for people waiting to go out to collect donations. Sometimes there were extra incentives given for collecting a lot of donations (such as gift cards to grocery stores). A good way to earn a little bit of money just before Christmas.

    Cons

    The pay was only minimum wage. There wasn't always enough work to go around, so some days not everyone who showed up got to go out on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell people when they're first hired that they may not get to go out on the job everyday, but that they usually will get some work if they bring in at least an average amount of donations on the days when they do get sent somewhere.
