    I worked at FOE part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lots of great benefits for so many causes such as Wounder Warriors, Wreaths Across America and Back to School. It is a great place to be a member. I love helping people.

    Cons

    There is a lot of elder members and every week someone is in the hospital or have passed. It can be very overwhelming sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    To be around a little more. Its hard to get anything fix around the premises at times. Its hard to find out who to ask for certain matters.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule. Most members are very pleasant to work and speak with.

    Cons

    The organization is not accepting of change. Appropriate financial records are not kept. No employee policies or procedures are in place. Lines of authority are not clear. There is no room for advancement, no benefits are offered whatsoever and no raise should be expected, regardless of how hard you work.

    Advice to Management

    Lose the "good ole' boy" mentality of covering up for those who abuse their authority.

    I have been working at FOE part-time

    Pros

    Easy going work environment as well as steady hours that fit my school schedule.
    Usually nice customer flow and polite if a bit old fashioned regulars.

    Cons

    The trustees are usually incompetent and bringing up important issues goes unheard unless you nuzzle up to them. Sometimes I wondered who was still in high school, me or the 40-somethings starting drama.

    Advice to Management

    Implement a better way for employees to bring forth problems and weed out the people who have no business working there.

    I worked at FOE part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay was great for bartender/waitress position. Minimum wages plus all tips (which you didnt have to report at end of shift) But was able to claim on tax returns. Also patrons were excellent and the atmosphere of the whole place was laid back and just had that "right-at-home" feel to it.

    Cons

    Some things and people were sometimes favored or able to get more leeway due to family having higher seniority or the board of directors. but was fair for the most part.
