    I worked at Salvation Army full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, fair pay, easy schedule.

    Cons

    Trying to blend professional retail with a religion based corporation that uses drug addicts going through their rehab while working a Work Therapy Program is supremely difficult and should be handled or shared by counselors along with professional retail people. Program management has visions of what their retail company is and needs to be and is poorly estimated. Salvation Army is at the bottom of the donation retail chain way below Goodwill and Savers as well as some smaller local charities. They need to hire professionals and allow them to build the organization and invest some money in building new stores and remodeling older stores. Signage or communications to the customers about sales and pricing is almost non existent, they are over priced, and the store management is way below industry standards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce director involvement and train from corporate Salvation Army for retail and production standards. Invest in building new stores, remodel or close old out of date stores, increase donation sites. Add a counselor to the production building to handle all beneficiary issues immediately. Allow management to concentrate on production and retail without having to constantly deal with beneficiary issues.

    Pros

    People you work with at the lower level are great

    Cons

    Person interviewing for store management went on and on in front of employees and myself at interview how the assistant store manager couldnt do the store management job because he was a man and men arent good store managers in her eyes. I was actually embarrassed for the assistant manager, she went on to say how he was a good assistant but that men just dont make good thrift store managers!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider training upper management on sexual harrassment in the workplace.

    I worked at Salvation Army as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The Salvation Army is a nice place to work. I was there for a short amount of time but I enjoyed working there. One of the things that made working there enjoyable was being able to see the good they are doing and the difference I was making.

    Cons

    I can not think of anything wrong with The Salvation Army. I do not have any problems with the establishment.

    I have been working at Salvation Army

    Pros

    I have interned in the PR department for several months and have learned so much. I went in with only the PR knowledge I had learned at school and I was really able to get hands on experience.

    Cons

    Because the company is a non-profit no compensation is offered to interns and the department is small so not much room to advance.
