Volunteer, Julia's Cafe and Books (Current Employee), Charlotte, NC – October 19, 2014
Volunteering for Habitat for Humanity in Julia's Cafe & Books is a rewarding, fulfilling experience where the proceeds go to a great cause of building homes for those in need who in turn pay it back to build more homes for others.
Customer service and Sales (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OK – October 13, 2014
Pros: good pay, great coworkers
Cons: management is very condescending and put others before employees
Management is not very confident to most procedures. There is diffidently an us and them dynamic between salary and hourly employees. Two set of rules for most employees. Great pay and coworkers are fun.
ReStore Manager (Current Employee), Mankato, MN – September 29, 2014
A typical day at the ReStore involves an always changing staff that manages to do great things despite the fact that we can't predict what will be happening in 20 minutes.
Since I love random tasks, it's a great fit for me. I have enjoyed many of the volunteers and other staff I've worked with and many of our customers & donors.
Most rewarding for – more... me has been seeing the final results of mywork. Not only do I know I make a great impact on our environment (we've kept nearly 900 TONS) of building materials out of landfills, but I also know that I've helped change many, many lives for the better. – less

Customer Service (Former Employee), Marysville, CA – September 22, 2014
Pros: friendly and helpfull workers
Cons: poor structure
I would help customers with their donations, with finding and moving there store bought merchandise. loading and unloading company tucks. Slow days I tested and cleaned donations getting them floor ready. Then I would stock the floor with the floor ready items. Also I would sanitize/clean floors, shelves, warehouse, bathroom, windows and floor items.
Managenment – more... was great very helpfull and informative. My co-workers were very friendly, professional, having great team and work ethics.
The hardest part of my job is the slow time. Because I like to stay busy. The more steady work I do the faster the workday will go.
I most enjoyed the friendy work environment and staying busy working with my hands. – less

Volunteer (Former Employee), Los Banos, CA – September 7, 2014
Pros: free food, amazing feeling
Cons: lifting heavy things.
While I volunteered at 'Habitat For Humanity' I realized it doesn't take much to help others. A simple lift or a paintbrush to the wall is all it takes to help someone. It's a great experience for young people, actually everyone, working together to get something done, it brings the whole community together. I learned a lot from volunteering here. the – more... best part is the feeling after you've helped someone, not for the money but because you wanted too. – less
