Do not work @ Charleston Habitat for Humanity. Very poor management. They treat truck drivers like dirt. Fire you for nothing. Management shows favoritism. Store is failing miserably, they cannot keep drivers. AVOID working here. A complete disaster.
very poor management, overworked, management shows favoritism, very rude manager etc. etc. many cons
Volunteer Coordinator/Warehouse Assistant (Current Employee) – Portland, OR – November 29, 2017
Current lower management store management needs some work... I see a high turn over rate because of this. It is a good company to get you to the next unless you know people, I learned a lot and learned a lot of leadership skills. Warehouse supervisor rocks
Manager of Operations (Former Employee) – Denton, TX – November 29, 2017
Very small organization with little chance to advance. Good for 1-3 years of nonprofit experience but not for a career. Management is in transition. The most difficult part of the job was performing a technical job in a non-technical organization.
was a good place to work if you were able to do heavy lifting in a shipping dock setting
Warehouse Laborer (Former Employee) – Wyoming, MI – November 22, 2017
I liked the job. The people working there were mostly friendly and easy to get along with. The customers were always fun to work with and help find what they were looking for. All in all i would work there again if ever offered.
was a really friendly environment to work in.
heavy lifting, not really a con though if you can handle it.

They require a lot of hard work from you for pennies on the dollar. You're going to sweat and stress. Hope you don't get hurt either because they still expect you to keep up with expectations. They might make houses affordable andmake it possible for some to get a home, but if you're working for them don't expect a place of your own.
Habitat for Humanity is a great place to work it pays well it’s a physically demanding job so you stay active and you do get a decent bit of downtime here and there. My only issue with Habitat for Humanity of the Chesapeake is that the management plays favorites. Other than that the rest of the staff is amazing it’s a great place to work I highly recommend it for anyone .
District Manager (Former Employee) – Alexandria, VA – November 21, 2017
I made sure all my store managers had what they needed to take care of the stores and the customers. I learned how to run multiple stores as well as training 4 store managers at the same time. The work place was always a place you want to be around. I enjoyed everyday i was there.
It was a very pleasant experience helping others in need.
Restore Associate (Former Employee) – Tuscaloosa, AL – November 14, 2017
On any given day one could in turn help somebody who was in great need of saving money because they were in hard times and that was beneficial to being a worker there. In addition, the donors were very polite and very gracious with their donations and that is one of the biggest parts of the mechanics of the whole organization.
VOLUNTEER (Former Employee) – Cookeville, TN – November 13, 2017
I would recommend working at Habitat for Humanity as either a volunteer or an employee. It was a fantastic place even though I only worked there for 5 hours during the weekend as well as the fact that I enjoyed it.
