I worked at Salvation Army as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

The Salvation Army is a great place to work, as an intern I saw that they help people from all walks of life and don't discriminate. I would love a chance to go back if the right job opened up.

Cons

An issue I saw was the lack of funds. They are run on donations and in this economy they are also struggling to provide the help that the community needs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Salvation Army full-time (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

    Good working atmosphere, but low wages.

    I worked at Salvation Army part-time (less than an 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.
