    I worked at Salvation Army (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Being a manager bonuses were given out if you reached quota. There was no ceiling on your pay. Paid vacations, medical is great, and also have pension if you can get there.

    Cons

    Being non profit. No unemployment and everyone does get fired. Treat employees with no respect. Accuse you of stealing all the time.

    Advice to Management

    Give more control to the managers at their stores. If what they are doing is going above quota, let them continue. Also, stop moving managers around we are not all stealing.

    Pros

    Making connections, both personal and professional. People are willing to work with you and help in any way they can.

    Cons

    No overtime. It would be great to have overtime to make more money for those who have a lot of books and trying to stay out of debt. In the army, the management changes often due to change of appointments, so this takes adjusting.
