I have been working at Habitat for Humanity part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Volunteers are very giving of their time, want to help the organization

Cons

Paranoid management, directors always fighting with each other, Executive Director does nothing about the issues in the organization, my first week there 4 people quit, mission is never talked about

Advice to Management

Focus on why we are there-to build houses for low-income houses, not build up your egos. I worry for the future for this local chapter.

    I have been working at Habitat for Humanity full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    provides good benefits, a diverse work group, community interaction is high, ability to move up (which could be slow), locations around the US and world.

    Cons

    Low wages, at times it is hard to get full time, mission is to help families in need but they fail to help their employees in need. I think they could build smaller and more affordable homes.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of those that work within the organization and affiliates. You should even count those as families served.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great, friendly customers who care about reuse/recycling. Coworkers in my department were always hardworking. 10 day break between Christmas and NYE.

    Cons

    Discontent between ReStore employees and HFHSTL proper. ReStore employees get paid much less than others in the organization that work in the office often when they have the same skills and education as their counterparts.

    HFHSTL's mission is to help homeowners get homes with zero interest by "sweat equity". But in 2011 when the bank for HFHSTL forgave ALL of the late payments from homeowners, HFHSTL took the money, but continued to charge the homeowners late payments and fees on top of that. I couldn't stay there after that.

    Directors do not give reviews on time; you have to contsantly "remind" them in order to get one.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the caustic Director's who inhibit growth and potential of good employees. Give ReStore employees a higher salary to retain the good ones. The sales of the store more than pay for it while still contributing to HFH funds.
