I worked at Salvation Army full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good work environment, good coworkers, immediate management willing to work on problems and fixes. Clients were well served and satisfied, forfilling place to work.

Cons

Bad Management by Salvation Army at upper management. Lack of foresight by upper management. Total disregard of mission statement by upper management. Total lack of consideration by upper management on the impact of their actions would have on the served clients.

    I worked at Salvation Army part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to help the community, also it was for children that their parents didn't have money for Christmas or to pay their bills so it was really good that I rung the bell and help raise money for those families. I love helping when I can.

    Cons

    It was very cold outside and it rained on us. It was very long hours but I would do it again in a heart beat.

    I have been working at Salvation Army part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Salvation Army has an incredible impact on the community where it serves. The mission to Do the Most Good isn't in vain. The Salvation Army is a Church and with that comes great accountability. The health benefits are excellent. The pay is about average for a nonprofit. The employees and officers are committed. What The Salvation Army is able to accomplish is incredible.

    Cons

    Paperwork can be a challenge. The Salvation Army operates old school so there is a lengthy approval process to get anything approved. It has to go through multiple boards and finance board approval to receive a green light. Nepotism. Nepotism happens daily in The Salvation Army. Hiring family members, or creating new positions just to have a family member hired, or a family member receiving special treatment because of their connections to a Salvation Army officer. It's frustrating for employees to see someone else receive special treatment because they are related to a Salvation Army Officer. This by far is the biggest issue with The Salvation Army. Children receiving special treatment because of their parents or relatives. I would not doubt for a second that employees with better qualifications get passed on for promotions or jobs because of nepotism in the workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Work on the Nepotism in the workplace. Consider setting up stricter guidelines for children who work in the same corps or command as their parents.
