Marketing Committee (Former Employee), Bloomington, IndianaJune 2, 2014
Pros: enjoyed making a lot of new friends within the marketing committee
Cons: we did not get paid because it was merely volunteer work
Typical day for the committee was to meet once a week for brainstorming

I have learned how to be selfless and to give back to the community

Management was well led by Marketing Committee Manager

Co-workers were all students who attended IU Bloomington

Hardest part of the job was to brainstorm

Most enjoyable part of the job was to create an advertisement – more... that succeeded – less

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.

Fun energetic place to work, lots of teamwork and customer interaction.
Key hold manager - Sales Associate (Former Employee), Midland, MIMay 21, 2014
The day begins by cleaning and organizing in effort for the daily operations to run smooth and efficiently. All employees collaborate together to make sure we are working on the goals for the day. The day consists of setting up donations for pick up or drop off, getting them cleaned, priced and ready for the sales floor. I enjoy helping customers most – more... of all, but to be part of a team who makes the community a better place is also very rewarding. The management is outstanding with a sense of company pride and responsibility for the good of team members as well as the patrons. All of my co-workers had something unique to bring to the table, which is great to share and learn from. – less

Volunteer Work (Former Employee), Frederick, MDMay 19, 2014
Volunteering for Habitat for Humanity consisted of constructing a duplex on various weekends. The atmosphere was fairly relaxed and volunteers were encouraged to have fun. The job became difficult as sometimes the management was not well organized. Overall it was a great experience to provide a house for a well deserving family.

Volunteer (Former Employee), Thibodaux, LAMay 4, 2014
Pros: meet new people
Habitat for Humanity is a non for profit organization that helps to provide homes for people who would not otherwise be able to afford a home. It makes the American dream come true for these people.
I enjoy volunteering my time to help this cause. I help in the Resale store, do pickups, and work as needed in this cause.
