Fun work space which requires a lot of body works.
Volunteer (Former Employee), Philadelphia, PAJune 23, 2014
A typical day for a volunteer like me who works for the Habitat for Humanity ReStore is all about moving and managing furniture and new arrivals, this requires a lot of body work and cooperation with your co-workers in order to move some of our big furniture around the store or ship out to our customers. I also helped my customers to look for the furniture – more... they want. Provide new information about the store's new arrivals to our customers is also part of my job. Fortunately I met a friendly crew who were helpful co-workers and great people to work with. – less

A first time work expierience with a positive atmosphere
Volunteer (Former Employee), Brooksville, FLJune 18, 2014
Pros: good co-workers and socail expirance
Cons: hard work and occasionally really bad customers
Every day directly after school I'd go to Habitat for humanity to volunteer 2 to 3 hours a day everyday. To be honest I was excited about the new work and was very excited about going. I learned what its like to work with people and in the work place. My co-workers were very accommodating helping me understand how things worked and what I should do. – more... The hardest part of my job was getting comfortable with talking to customers, I was very shy and nervous about speaking to strangers. However the most fun I had was cleaning the store, I love to clean. – less

I enjoyed working for morgan corporation and was able to gain a lot of valuable knowledge. My coworkers were a vital part of my success here, the only problem I had with this company is the seasonal nature of the work

Warehouse and Retail work
ReStore Warehouse and Floor Manager (Former Employee), Woodstock ILJune 1, 2014
Pros: good premise
Cons: days too long not enough paid help
I typically worked from 8:00 am until 6:30 pm. I managed the volunteer workers and had to balance the need to get the work done with the fact that a volunteer does not get paid to do the job, hence I ended up doing a lot of the work myself. Hardest part of the job was the long days. Most enjoyable was helping raise money for deserving families. I am – more... contractually not able to comment about the management. – less

Overall a good experience
Dock worker (Former Employee), Colorado Springs, COMay 28, 2014
I strongly enjoyed working with the people there and learned alot during that time period. I learned more advanced organizational and product placement skills than I had at any other point. I also gained the ability to deal with customers who could be increasingly disrespectful and at points would even attempt to steal from the company.

Productive Building Environment
VOLUNTEER (Former Employee), NairobiMay 28, 2014
Pros: helping others
Cons: long hours
This job was voluntary. I helped build houses in rural areas of Kenya. A typical day at work involved building with friends, peers, and Habitat for Humanity employees. Everything was very well organized. Since this job was voluntary I was not paid but the work was worth my hard work. This job was very enjoyable as I helped out others that were less – more... fortunate than myself by building them homes. – less
