Volunteer Experience
Volunteer (Former Employee), Ypsilanti, MIJuly 23, 2015
Pros: Volunteer Service, Great Work Environment, Great Leadership
Cons: Labor Intensive
I loved volunteering with Habitat. The work/life balance was basically a non-issue since I was able to volunteer for times that fit into that balance. It's hard to talk about compensation when volunteering because it is non-financial. I gave my time to help a family in need and that is enough compensation in itself. There will always be a need for volunteers but job security/advancement are also a non-issue. When you volunteer you are secure, but you are giving your time and whatever knowledge you possess helps you achieve more in that time. When it comes to management, every carpenter that I have worked with for Habitat has been great. They all seemed exceptionally skilled at identifying the difficulty of the work to be done and assigning the right volunteer to the job. Volunteer culture is probably the best work environment that I can think of. Everyone is there to get work done and sometimes we would have fun while doing it.

fulfilling place to work in.
Warehouse, customer associate (Former Employee), Riverside CAJuly 10, 2015
Pros: helping customers with their buying needs.
Cons: acute moments of inactivity.
Overall, my term at Habitat for Humanity was worthwhile. - I was kept busy loading and unloading stock and helping customers with their product questions and purchasing choices.
I learned some things about retail sales.
My co-workers were nice people and committed to the operation.
The hardest part of the job for me were the acute moments of inactivity, brought on by a lack of customers and/or lack of product to load or unload.
The most enjoyable part of the job was helping a customer become satisfied with a purchase.

Productive, always something new to learn.
Apprentice for construction (Current Employee), Albuquerque, NMJuly 8, 2015
Pros: Paid lunch, Smoke breaks, over-time, benefits
Cons: two days of work permitted, unreliable schedule
Contractors gather workers for a meeting to discuss the plans for the day before hand and come to a mutual agreement. Learned diverse things involving the ethics of construction. Concrete, Drywall, Electrical, Power Tools, Identifying Safety Hazards, How to work with a group of people, etc. Co-workers respected when you're on the clock or doing a job. Weather conditions made the hardest part of the job. Most enjoyable part of the job was constantly being productive.

A great cause
Volunteer Laborer (Former Employee), Melbourne, FLJuly 1, 2015
Pros: Fun Co Workers and easy enviroment
Cons: Exhausting work
This is a real good place to be if you want to learn what a retail place offers such as walmart or publix. a lot of the same tasks apply, but Habitat for humanity is a lot calmer and much more easy going. most of their employees are volunteers.

Unpredictable, but fun and worth wild.
Volunteer (Current Employee), Zephyrhills, FlJuly 1, 2015
Pros: Good coworkers and manager, and sense of accomplishment.
Cons: It can be difficult, to tell what the manegent above the individual store level is trying to do, and and lot of effort gets spent sorting out worth wild donations from trash.
Habit makes for an unpredictable work day, since you never know what or how much stuff is going to come in. Everyone is more than willing help each other when they're over runned, but we're usually under staffed. So It's a constant race to process and sell everything as fast as in comes in. But the sense of accomplishment at the end of the day make it all worth it.

My coworkers are great company and are great at the jobs. The Manager is really good about keeping everyone informed, and is easy to get along with.

I learned a lot from my time working at Habit, and I would recommend it to anyone preparing to enter the job market.
