Pros: everything, never a dull moment, life was constantly changing from day to day
Cons: sometimes we would get donations that we had to throw away or couldn't sell/give away, that was tough.
I managed various people from day to day - We would get a lot of volunteers or people serving community service. From assisting with sales, moving furniture, using the forklift, going on a run to do pick-ups of donations, helping out with natural disaster relief when we could, organizing the way we utilized our time, to typical Management decisions, – more... there was never a dull moment with this job.
I learned how to take my management experience with building sales teams to training young to older adults with how to work with each other as one unit.
The hardest part of the job was also the best part of the job, keeping track of everyone and getting them to work together; however, once they started working as a team that's when we would see the real magic happen. The store would get taken care of much faster, customers were a lot more happy, the team developed a sense of pride in what they accomplished etc....
Overall at Habitat I enjoyed everyone I worked with. – less
