Warehouse, customer associate (Former Employee) – Riverside CA – July 10, 2015
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 thingsmore... 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. less
Apprentice for construction (Current Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – July 8, 2015
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,more... 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. less
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.
Volunteer (Current Employee) – Zephyrhills, Fl – July 1, 2015
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 undermore... 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. less
Good coworkers and manager, and sense of accomplishment.
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.
