Office Assistant (Former Employee), Brentwood, MDJanuary 20, 2014
Pros: flexible times
Cons: restrictive
Mostly the day was good, Got deal with hard customers sometimes, management was ok except for one of them who did not want to understand a word from his employee, co workers were nice and sweet. hardest part is when you have to restock the store. Sometimes surprises were made to us by the boss

Construction Laborer (Former Employee), Troy, NYJanuary 18, 2014
Pros: learning construction skills, learning how to do drywall, learning how to do carpentry
I would go to a construction site daily and I would help make houses and learn new things. I learned carpentry and drywall. I earned many certifications. The management was an awesome group. They encouraged me to work harder everyday, they pushed me to do things that I felt uncomfortable to do, and they taught me that I could do anything that I put – more... my mind to. My coworkers were great when they wanted to be, but sometimes they weren't as devoted as I was. The hardest part of my job was people not trying to work as hard as I was working. The most enjoyable part of my day was learning new things on a daily basis. – less

Most welcoming and dedicated staff, I wanted to go to work every morning!
DEVELOPMENT AND COMMUNICATIONS DIRECTOR (Current Employee), West Springfield, MAJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: people, healthcare, flexible schedules, cultural environment
Cons: it wasn't based in san francisco.
I became involved with Habitat via a volunteer position I was recruited to on their Development Committee. We built four homes for tornado-affected families and manged to raise $600,000 in six months to get them home for the holidays. Shortly after that I was asked onto their Board of Directors. I was then on the search committee for a new Development – more... and Communications Director. I couldn't pass it up. I wanted to walk through the door there every morning. No one was beyond taking out the trash or handling emotionally challenging situations involving people who really, really needed a home. It was a fantastic team and I would work there again in a heartbeat. The management style was best described as coaching. Our ED expected us to come to her with what we needed her to do. In my case, that was finding and scheduling prospective funders. The hardest part of the job was working with so many folks in need. Avoiding mission creep with the desires of potential funders could be challenging as well--but nothing that was insurmountable. During a typical day I would work with board members, committee members, our web hosting company, members of the community and staff to secure funding, plan and execute events and spread the word through our marketing. The entire staff was supportive when I told them I was moving. I am still working for them pro bono because I care about them as people and about the mission of the organization. – less

Great Work Experience
volunteer/carpentry (Former Employee), Silverdale, WAJanuary 16, 2014
Pros: work skills, built houses for people in need.
I really enjoyed working with Habitat for Humanity. I learned a lot of new things like how to install drywall and how to do frame work. The management was great along with my co-workers. The hardest part of the job was having to work all day in the hot sun. The most enjoyable part of the job was that I knew that I was helping the community and people – more... in need. I may not have gained a paycheck for the hard work I did, but I did gain great work experience – less

Wonderful Organization
Keyed-Manager (Former Employee), East Peoria, ILDecember 15, 2013
Under new Directorship, Making many changes to meet new E.D. desires. Many new hires are short term, however, employees are not told that upon hiring...
Once all new changes are made and new policies are written and in effect this should be a good source of employment; but not until changes are written to become policy.
