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
Landscape Laborer (Former Employee), Tacoma, WA – August 28, 2014
A typical day at this company would consist of doing rigorous work(heavy lifting, constant walking and standing) as soon as you arrive on the job site which for me was early in the morning. An adequate amount of time for your break that would get in the middle of the day. The job definitely taught me how to work as a team player. My co-workers were – more... very friendly and very knowledgeable about the job providing me with insight on how to do my duties more efficiently and were a great help. The hardest part of the job was the continuous heavy lifting I did through out my shift. the most enjoyable part of was being a part of a project where you literally built house from the ground up to provide a family with a place to call a home. – less
Pros: stable environment, easy going/ understandable staff, always busy with a task
Cons: barely any breaks, the office would sometimes be super cold
I typical day I had when working at Habitat for humanity was a busy, productive day. I also had hands-on training on how to become an office clerk or an administrative assistant before I even graduated college and stop working at habitat for Humanity. In addition to that my supervisor was very helpful with questions and/or concerns I had regarding the – more... position in which I was working in. My co-workers were really nice and got along with them perfectly. The hardest part of the job was to keep organized and working under stress as quickly and efficiently as possible. I enjoyed this position because it was similiar with what I was going to school for at that time and learning different things about the company. – less
