Ten Thousand Villages works for a good cause. They do the best they can for a non-profit organization.

Sales Associate (Current Employee)

ProsFor a good cause, good pay

ConsA lot of responsibility for the wage. Since the company is very understaffed, close to impossible to switch hours with someone else, and often there isn't enough time to do everything necessary.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
