    Limited full time opportunity isn’t much ways to advance unless you have been in it for a while. There really isn’t much else

    I have been working at Salvation Army part-time

    Pros

    Great clients and staff to work with. Job is one of the most laid back I've worked for in over 12 years.

    Cons

    Minimal help from higher up staff. Will not hire anyone in full time because they don't want to pay benefits or health care.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone full time that would cut down on the turnover rate of employees.

    Great group of people to work with. Funniest group of women ever.
    Just so fun to go to work every day. I've never worked with a closer group of people.

    None, I love it here.

    Maybe a higher rate of pay would be good.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Salvation Army full-time

    Pros

    It is a well rounded company that is faith based and cares about people

    Cons

    Needs more flexibility in how they provide services for families especially those in disenfranchised neighborhoods

    Advice to Management

    Think about how people feel when they build a relationship with an officer and then that officer is removed. The residents have to learn to trust another oerson all over again, making sustainability to decrease with each new change.
