    Pros

    The great feeling of helping someone learn how to be a homeowner with budgeting, routine home maintenance, and fulfilling their civic duty.

    The local affiliate board members usually do not have a clue. They need to be oriented and educated much better on the mission.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the loyal, long term employees. Don't forget about them when compensating new staff.

    I worked at Habitat for Humanity part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working at Habitat for Humanity in the ReStore. The other employees were awesome to work with on the days I was there. It was an overall fun, exciting place to be a part of.

    Cons

    One thing I didn't really like about working there was because everything was so laid back sometimes there was miscommunication on different things.

    Advice to Management

    Management could have been a little more strict on some of the rules.

    Pros

    great feeling when helping those in need, especially those who have more than they need and wish to give it away. Cleaning up the environment and keeping gently used to brand new things out of the dumps.

    Cons

    very political, ran by volunteers, in turn not many help. each state, each county, each town has a different environment. If something needs done there needs to be more people involved.

    Advice to Management

    do as much work, as the people who are volunteering.
