"Good working atmosphere, but low wages."

I worked at Salvation Army part-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Friendly and supportive environment. The office had a casual atmosphere, and the management was encouraging and confidence-inspiring. There was always coffee and snacks there in the morning for people waiting to go out to collect donations. Sometimes there were extra incentives given for collecting a lot of donations (such as gift cards to grocery stores). A good way to earn a little bit of money just before Christmas.

Cons

The pay was only minimum wage. There wasn't always enough work to go around, so some days not everyone who showed up got to go out on the job.

Advice to Management

Tell people when they're first hired that they may not get to go out on the job everyday, but that they usually will get some work if they bring in at least an average amount of donations on the days when they do get sent somewhere.
