I enjoyed my day-to-day job of helping at the ReStore. I learned how to organize products and work with customers, as well as proper planning and scheduling when making pickups for donors. The management was good, but not very organized. This made the job more difficult than it needed to be. The hardest part was the lack of organizations and work load. The best part was the people I worked with and being able to help others in need.

Busy Retail Store. Under staffed to achieve set goals.
Store Manager (Current Employee) – Simi Valley, CA – July 18, 2017
Busy retail environment. Constant change as items come in and get purchased quickly. Big turn over of stock and have different items all the time.
Only 2 stores in Ventura County, Oxnard and Simi, so the budget is very low. We, at the store, are under a lot of pressure to achieve goals that we don't have the man hours or payroll to achieve, which affects the minimum paid workers' willingness to be "involved" in reached said goals.
Working for a Non Profit is prideful.
Low budget, under staffed, no HR dept, no air cond., upper mngmnt constantly changes direction.

Habitat is an awesome place to learn how to work different operations of a hardware store. From pricing items to helping out customers find something they like and helping them put their items in their vehicle.
it was a good experience to work for habitat for humanity
Volunteer work as part of my training (Former Employee) – Tahlequah, OK – July 7, 2017
A typical day at work would be described as a good day in the construction industry and you are able to get experience out of a full days work. I learned that u can do something nice and not have to be paid for the work you did. The management was good and I learned a lot from the management team there.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Normal, IL – July 7, 2017
I had a great time volunteering. This was a volunteer opportunity given to college freshmen and I took it. I made a lot of friends and was able to help a great organization. I also picked a slug up off of a piece of wood because everyone else was scared to touch it. I was proud of myself.
