General Construction Worker (Former Employee) – Modesto, CA – October 19, 2017
I volunteered for community service for habit for humanity it was a great place to get me going and enter the work environment word with instructors there to give you the skills necessary to perform the task
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Omaha, NE – October 16, 2017
A fun and meaningful place to volunteer at. Employees are all great and the construction supervisors are all patient with you and teach you how to do everything they ask you to do. Good times volunteering with other people in the community.
This company takes donations such as Refrigerators, stoves, etc. and charge the homebuyers for it. All these items general cost is included into the cost of the home and should not be because the items were donated. This non-profit is FOR PROFIT! Not helping the low income families - helping filling their own pockets!
Transporter/Cashier (Former Employee) – Lansing, MI – October 9, 2017
Often would work with unpaid personnel rather they were a volunteer or a person sentenced to do community service. The manager of the Restore was often in the office doing things unrelated to the management of the store. The most enjoyable part of the job was seeing the customers leave with a smile because they found quality materials which didn't empty their wallet.
Habitat for Humanity Volunteer (Former Employee) – Leland, MS – October 8, 2017
Habitat for humanity is a good work place because it gives homes to families that can't afford housing assistance but my experience was okay. I received no benefits or pay because it was through GED school but I did receive a certificate for construction as a trade before I received my GED diploma.
Cashier/Loader (Former Employee) – Middleburg, FL – October 5, 2017
I did not officially work for Habit for Humanity it was a work study through my school, but the experience there was unlike any other. The Employees at habitat are a family and the mission for the business is just phenomenal, they are single handedly taking a grip on the economy and helping people who need it the most. They have helped so many people that in just my few months there i have seen more people be helped than any other not-for-profit organization. These people are the best and anyone should be proud to say that they worked for them. I know I am!
personally I enjoyed working at HFH because of the variability of opportunities. I learned a lot there; including, patience, moving heavy tvs, tables, refrigerators, etc. I learned how to use a cash register, I also learned how to cooperate and put business priorities and excelling over shenanigans.
