    I worked at Salvation Army (More than a year)

    Pros

    Got to engage with community which I am from.

    Cons

    Terrible management implementing backwards policies. Don't reward/notice hard work. Punish all employees for bad behavior of a single employee but don't reward any employees for good behavior. No one enjoyed working there, management seems lifeless.

    Advice to Management

    trust your employees.

    I have been working at Salvation Army full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    you get to be outside. the job is simple, you just ring a bell and greet people and say thank you, and you're doing it for a good cause. you're alone and out. i suggest it for anyone really looking for money for the holidays.

    Cons

    standing for long periods of time can be hard on your legs and feet.

    Advice to Management

    you should allow bell ringers to be able to bring a chair if they want to. people will still see them and they wouldn't be sat in the entire time. it may give bell ringers more energy.
