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

Pros

Job satisfaction. paid-time off, excellent benefits, family oriented. Promote from within. Helping others to improve their lives.

Cons

inconsistent adherence to polices. long hours during holiday season. management changes often. often have to advise and "case manage" without training.

Advice to Management

streamline operation policies to provide more consistency for employees. Provide additional training and development to allow employees who are in social services to better assist clients.

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

    Pros

    It was a great opportunity to work with kids. The work was meaningful, and it was rewarding and enjoyable to see the kids gain tangible skills and perform in their recital. Staff were very supportive and appreciative.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is what most non-profits probably experience. Communication was often last minute and limited, there wasn't any preparation or resources for classroom setup or management.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Salvation Army full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    We helped the community when the officer approved and unlocked the door. We would give food to the homeless when they could provide a phone number and address (I found this to be so horrible)

    Cons

    The Benefits for regular staff was not the best Management changes often You are not valued if you are not a part of the Salvation Army's ministry.

    Advice to Management

    Every Officer is not fit or ment to run a Corps.
