    I worked at Salvation Army part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Almost nothing really. You get 25% off at Salvation Army stores, but I wasn't allowed to shop at mine.

    Cons

    Very poor management. Treated employees and beneficiaries like prisoners.

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

    Pros

    You're making a difference and it's a good entry-level position, staff is always willing to help one another, good hours, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Unprofessional atmosphere, unrealistically high expectations, more concerned about "filling the beds" than they are about the clients. I was told I would receive a raise after the 90 day training period. They told me I wouldn't receive a raise for another 3 months, and it will only be 2%.

    Advice to Management

    Live up to the expectations you ask of your employees.

    I worked at Salvation Army full-time

    Pros

    The Mission of The Salvation Army is the only reason to work for this organization. Doing God's work, reaching those in need in His name.

    Cons

    As any non profit the pay is low

    Advice to Management

    Don't leave your service offices to the wind. To cultivate local relationships with center of influence there must be support from corporate.

    I worked at Salvation Army full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Experience that you gain from working with so many people in a fast paced environment

    Cons

    The management wasn't honest, trustworthy, or open to new ideas. HR worked alongside management so if you ever complained, HR would tell your supervisor.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more so that you can find qualified people that care for the work they are doing,

    I have been working at Salvation Army full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You get many holidays off

    Cons

    no room for growth and employees do not have much of a voice. Expect to get a new boss every couple of years that wants to change everything you worked hard at building up without him. Employees are not invested in and nobody ever seems happy in the building, including the officers

    Advice to Management

    listen to employees, you cant do anything without them and they do matter.

    Pros

    Short hours. Lots of holidays and vacation time.

    Nepotism at its worst. Everyone is related to someone higher up. If someone doesn't like you they make your life hell.

    Be there even for your employees who are not officers or relatives. They matter too.
