My typical day at work as a volunteer, group up and discuss the departments and tasks that need attention that day. Individual, pairing up, and or teaming up. I learned with dedicaton and accountability, I was awarded a Professional Internship and was appointed project management. Making recycled things to display for sale, watching co-workers creativity.

Customer Service (Current Employee), Houston, TXAugust 27, 2015
Pros: Assisting community, great staff
Cons: Time can go by slow at times
Habitat for Humanity is a fun place to work knowing that you are helping the community. They have a great staff and everyone works together. The store receives donations of furniture and other fixtures at an affordable price. A great alternative to Home Depot or Lowe's.

Volunteer Work (Former Employee), Los Angeles, CAAugust 15, 2015
Pros: Learning new skills and seeing positive outcomes
Cons: the locations were sometimes far away
while I helped build houses for low-income families through the habitat for humanity foundation I learned many skills. I not only saw how much hard work went into building just one house, but the impact it made on the people's lives who were able to live in that house. It felt amazing to give back to people in need. It was initially hard to learn all the tasks that needed to be completed but working with a positive group that understood the importance of the work was truly incredible.

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.
