    Doesn't Recommend

    I have been working at Salvation Army full-time

    Pros

    The work is easy, and the workers are one of those ppl who basically understands hardships of life - not like those insulated crew who come off freshly orchestrated.

    Cons

    The coworkers at worst could come off as ignorant/aggressive, while the environment itself is unhygienic & numbingly mechanical at best.
