Do not work for this company unless there is no other hope of getting a job.
Pros: the career centers are great places to work and have great programs
Cons: working in retal donation stores is not worth the stress, and you are payed very little with low raise.
Good for a Starting job but don't expect to make it a lasting career. Although I like the fact that their Career Center really helps people. Working for them is not worth the stress. I am a very hard worker, and love to work hard, but they pay very little. For the last 3 years working for them I started at minimum wage and ended at only 9.00 an hour. To tell the truth I really enjoyed working for them the first 2 years then new management rolled in, but even before things started to change. I never worked for a company that had such strange and absurd rules. Hard work in some cases is rarely complemented. Production is always worried about losing there jobs. At times there distribution center management is poorly informed and organized, and most store and production managers are always breathing down your neck. Retail management is always stressed an I have witnessed too many to ether quit or be terminated. Working as a Donation Attendant at times you will be the only one closing at night. Management to keep budget shorts staff and cuts hours after Holiday pay in some cases and expects to get double the work out of production. At busy times OSHA safety regulations are not followed. I have witnessed workers quitting or being harassed to quit. Although I am not sure how every store is, but at a recertification meeting talking to other workers it seems like the same vibe and frustration. I am not saying do not donate to them because I think their Career Centers really can help people, but at times they really take advantage.
