Fun and engaging place to work, perfect job for college
Team Leader/ Sales Associate (Current Employee), Greenville, NCMarch 30, 2015
A typical day at Habitat for Humanity involves dealing with merchandise being donated from various people and business from the county. The donations are processed by cleaning and pricing in order to sell within the Restore. This is all done while leading teams of volunteer/community service people throughout the day. Working there has sharpened leadership and communication skills, as well as giving a unique retail experience.

Construction Laborer (Former Employee), Robinson, ILMarch 29, 2015
Pros: Helping people
Cons: N/A
Every person should take Construction technology in school if you are good at it and like helping people you may have just found a career as a carpenter or construction worker. I liked building homes and doing outside projects. Its beats working in the classroom and you can do it as an adult if you wanted too. Its volunteer work if your looking for a little purpose and to be led in the right direction for a career involving carpentry work. Then I personally recommend you try this out you can't beat free training.

The core of doing this charity work is both the knowledge of knowing your helping others that could use some help. In addition we get to learn new techniques for accomplishing tasks and get to practice those techniques firsh hand and immediately. I enjoy the team building and watching people go from uncertantiny to confidence in what the've learned and joy in the beginning of mastering a new process.

A noble idea.
Habitat for Humanity Restore Manager (Former Employee), Portales, NMMarch 9, 2015
Pros: the opportunity to work for a truly great and noble charity organization.
Cons: people will be people, and likewise, businesses fail because of this.
A typical day at work for the Habitat for Humanity Restore involved cashing people out, store maintenance, store organization, and pickups / deliveries from those who would donate items to the store. One major thing I learned from this job is an improved sense of organization in the work place. As a store working with restored goods, and in a very low socioeconomic status area, one has to make the best of what store space and what goods that your given. Sadly, I can't say that management was the greatest at this store. There was one main store manager that came along later and proved to be an excellent manager in my last year working for this store. However, for the most part, inexperience, pettiness, and overall resentment of other people's ideas, as far as the main management for this store, got in the way of making this store truly succeed. I didn't have many co-workers; just me and my brother actually ran the store. We did what we could with what I've already stated about management. Again, the hardest part of this job was trying to do the basic job of running a store, where everyone else who was a manager above us had their own idea about how the store should be run with no compromise. However, despite all these difficulties in this job, the best parts about this job is that it allowed me to help people that, though nameless to me, probably greatly appreciated the charity. That is the part of this job that I take with me that makes me feel the best about this job; the opportunity to work for an organization that delivers charity to a world greatly in need of it.

Very detail oriented.
Data Entry Clerk (Former Employee), Americus, GAMarch 9, 2015
Pros: the hours were from 8am-3pm which worked out great for me.
Cons: the pay was not compatible with the economy.
As a data entry clerk you ha to be detail oriented. The company also had a quota system so, you had to keep up with the pace. The co-workers were friendly, due to the nature of the job there was little time to socialize. The clerks were allowed to listen to music with headphones of course.
