    I worked at Habitat for Humanity full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I worked at the Restore. It was so satisfying to know that all the profits went towards building a house for people who probably could not afford to buy and own a their home.

    Cons

    Once a price was put on an item, some people still wanted to "wheel and deal" for a cheaper price (normally all the items were well below retail, even as low as 50%)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity

    Pros

    Working with all the volunteers. As well as interacting with the customers who come to either browse or purchase. I definitely got my workout while working there. I also learned how to repair many electrical items, that were being donated.

    Cons

    I can't seem to find anything bad about working there. Yes, the weather got a bit hot and sticky at times but overall I had a delightful time working there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had three different bosses. They were always polite to me. Though, they would push me to work harder and faster. It was tedious at times, but they were always there to help or give constructive criticism.

    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great for students needing to get some experience on their resume, at the same time you get to work/network with volunteers and people who work at Habitat!

    Training- I was a marketing intern and worked under the assistant manager. He was always ready to help, although he seems to have to juggle multiple things.

    Cons

    The internship I had was unpaid.

    Pros

    Habitat is a wonderful organization that takes care of its employees and offers room for growth. You feel good about working here as you're consistently connected back to the mission.

    Cons

    The organization is going through many changes and lot of growth, which produces friction in any environment, but there seemed to be several factions of staff at odds with one another.

  10. Overall a good organization with a great mission. I enjoyed my time there.

    Pros

    - A big non profit
    - competitive non profit salary
    - great mission
    - people are friendly

    Cons

    The upper management all come from different backgrounds and it is hard to work as a cohesive unit when working across departments. Also, since it is a Christian base organization you might feel uncomfortable with the prayer / scripture reading that start most meetings. I personally, did not have a problem with it but noticed others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have yearly reviews of your team.

    Pros

    Great staff members and tip money is always high and almost too much relaxation time. The hours are very easy to work around.

    Cons

    Pay isn't worth the amount of hard labor you go through, and management is pretty high maintenance if you can tolerate it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relax a little bit it's a slow store with little customers
