Current Employee - Case Worker

I have been working at The Salvation Army full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

This job is all about helping individuals who have found themselves homeless due to unemployment, family conflict, drug and/or alcohol addiction, being incarcerated, to name a few. Having been... homeless myself, it is very rewarding when I can be a part of rebuilding their lives, step by step in the right direction. Also, my coworkers make the place like family.

Cons

There is too much work and too few staff members to do the job as it should be done, at minimum wage no less ...

Advice to Management

Hire more staff.

Current Employee - Systems Engineer

I have been working at Melwood full-time
