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

    Pros

    The mission and helping others.

    Cons

    Accountability is different depending on who you are and who you know. If you are affiliated with the Church or if your family is, you are treated with a much higher level of respect.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your professional employees who may not have dedicated their life to your church but have dedicated their life to service others.

    I worked at Salvation Army part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you purchase items, they can be written off as a donation (back to company) on income tax at years end.

    Cons

    Pension, after five years, but this company will fire you or drive you to quit a month before that anniversary. Store Supervisor hired a former prison guard who treats employees like inmates, perhaps the inmates were treated better.
    I was terminated 31 days before my 5 year anniversary. No hard working, value-added, loyal, healthy employee deserves that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take some training in people skills. Reward hard working employees by simply being fair. Quit pricing items high, customers are very informed and do not want to be taken advantage of used merchandise. It all comes down to money.
