    YOU WILL HAVE AROUND 15 SUPERVISOR'S WHO WONT EVER AGREE ON ANYTHING AND THERES ALOT OF CONFUSION THAT GOES WITH THAT.

    Advice to Management

    STOP LETTING YOUR more well off volunteers and employees price your items.please stop trying to sale donations for more than they cost when they were new lol.

    I worked at Habitat for Humanity full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone at Habitat is devoted to the cause of finding permanent affordable housing for those that wouldn't otherwise be able to own a home. That ideal produces a positive and supportive working environment. Very good benefits for a not-for-profit.

    Cons

    The office is very small and the employees very nice, but there's no real room for advancement. Each person has their job and you'd have to move to another city to change that position.

    Advice to Management

    Challenge your employees more to prevent them from becoming stagnant in their position.
