Pros

Everyone is so nice to work with. There's a real team effort in our office. Everyone is very friendly, very helpful and enjoy each other. Our hours are very flexible, they want to accommodate our needs.

Cons

I can't think of anything. There really is no downside to working for The Salvation Army that I can think of. They are very accommodating. My boss is the best. He's understanding, gives us the tools to do our jobs and trusts our judgment.

Advice to Management

Discipline the corps officers that don't follow directions. I don't understand why some corps officers and some officers at DHQ are allowed to be stubborn and not follow the rules.

    Pros

    Because it is a calling and not just a job, it is the only one for me! I enjoy the variety and the type of people that you meet each day. I love working with children and seeing them advance in school and music (both which we provide tutoring for) and the appreciation of people who are in need and having that need supplied. On Sundays, we minister to those who have a spiritual need and long for fellowship. It is a great way to help others and at the same time grow and learn about yourself. If given the opportunity again, I would certainly do it again!

    Cons

    Work is hard and long and money doesn't come it regularly to meet the needs of programs.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the lines of communication open and thank you!

    Pros

    When they are really helping people, that is great, but they can't do a lot because of their finances.

    Cons

    If you are salary, they take advantage of you and you are required to work long hours with no compensation. No appreciation is shown for your efforts. TOO MUCH hieharchy, they forget they are ministers and become GOD. No team work, do as I say not as I do.

    Advice to Management

    More communication with employees. Stick to a decision, don't sway from it. Don't be control freak, there are others with great suggestions and motives for the advancement and betterment of The Salvation Army. Don't be afraid to venture out to new ways to raise funds for the operations.
