    Pros

    Incredible experience overall. Fellow employee's make you feel as though you are a part of the family. Regular customers get to know you personally.

    HR and Management are the same person. Everyone on the board were friends previous to employment with Habitat which can make it difficult to move up from current position.

    Pros

    Good work being done for the community, I get to network and connect with people. The team is nice and like a family

    Cons

    Low pay and long hours. I have 2 degrees and 4 years experience in this field. The average pay should be $30-40,000 but I am being paid $21,000 before taxes. I am hourly, but expected to use my personal phone to answer people from work and email back while off the clock.

    Advice to Management

    If I am doing salary style work, please just give me a salary. Compensate me based on the national average if not based on my experience. Please give me a work phone.
