        I have been working at Salvation Army part-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Sick time after 90 days/ personal time. Paid one week vacation after one year.

        Cons

        Hard work a very physical job, low pay, drama, favorites among certain employees, some employees bullying and bark at you like a dog with no people skills. Cant shop after work which is unfair especially when you work 69 cent saturdays. Feeling overworked, underpaid, and unappreciated.

        Advice to Management

        Stop showing favorites and and appreciate good employees who work hard and let good employees shop after work weve earned it

            Approves of CEO

            I worked at Salvation Army full-time for more than a year

            Pros

            Working with the Salvation Army for Christmas Kettle Season was very rewarding and having the ability to give back to the community was huge.

            Cons

            Only having 2 weeks to ramp up to a full-steam-ahead position can be difficult for some, since most Kettle Coordinators only do this for one season and don't usually come back for a second season (since it is temporary) - the learning curve is quick.

            Advice to Management

            Great position - recommend it be a 2 month pre-Kettle season, Kettle season, 1 month after season to wrap up = total of 5 month position.

            I have been working at Salvation Army part-time for more than a year

            Pros

            Always busy so work days go by quickly. Customers and coworkers are friendly and pleasant.

            Cons

            Cannot foresee a real future in the company without sacrificing a life outside of work. It is a Christian organization so profits are geared more towards community service rather than employee retention. It seems as if only management and trainees are scheduled full time due to budget restraints. Not a complaint ...just an observation.
