    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

    Friendly co-workers and managers. Days are flexible. Management isnt on your back, good first time job.

    Cons

    Pay is on the low side. Would recommend for a first time job but not as a long term job. Dont always have necessary equipment. A lot of heavy lifting. Only one full-time position per store so less chance in getting full-time. Not much opportunity to grow in company. Some higher ups, dont listen to their stores needs or problems

    I worked at Salvation Army part-time

    Pros

    Most co-workers are nice and supportive

    Cons

    The culture is NOT one of caring or supportiveness. All levels of management lack basic leadership skills and literally address "performance" issues in public, in front of customers and peers. They do not bother to learn your name until you've been there for a week or two. No formal on the job training whatsoever. 2/3 of the staff is disgruntled and has legitimate concerns with management but will not voice concerns due to fear of repercussions. English is the only language I speak, therefore I could not understand most of the instruction I was provided. Management will only speak english when forced to. I felt compelled to use google translate on my phone in order to understand what was being said. Staff meetings, at my particular location, we conducted in Spanish. No effort was made to convey the points made in the meeting to me in English. I think this may be a labor violation.

    Advice to Management

    All points made above are honest and fair. Human Resources should take this review seriously and investigate the practices of store management on a regular basis.
