    Pros

    Work was easy, loved sorting through the donated items. Part time, great if you are in school.

    Cons

    Coworkers were mean. Especially if you were new. They made the environment unpleasant. Management looked the other way. Pay was low. Not enough hours.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what is happening in your stores.

    Pros

    You can get good experience working with the chosen population.

    Cons

    Pay is really low for a difficult job with minimal support.

    Advice to Management

    People should be paid what they are worth. Turnover might be lessened this way.

  7. Good Training, but Poor Environment

    Pros

    You get reliable hours working as a Trainee or Intern at their Adult Rehabilitation Centers. You get good experience working with a resistant population with substance abuse issues. The center I was at had good supervision as well. The staff was friendly.

    Cons

    Very LGBTQ unfriendly. Very religion oriented (they are a Church, can be seen as a pro I guess). Upper management tended to have big egos.

    Pros

    This agency treats their employee's well. Lots of paid holidays, sick time, discretionary time off, vacation time, etc. They also do little things at Christmas and other times that make you feel appreciated. There is a lot of education and support. You really feel like you are cared about as a person and family support is strong!

    Cons

    The biggest con, is just like any other non-profit, the pay is low. However, they do try to make up for it in other ways...

    Advice to Management

    Positive attitudes are important and remember how stressful the environment can be and that we do need quiet time...
