Driver (Former Employee), Warrensville, OH – November 3, 2014
Pros: meet important people, the money raised from donations go for a good cause.
Cons: that they were seasonal and are ran of funding.
The work load for Habitat for Humanity was moderate. Picking up donations and polishing them up for resale was the daily job duties. My co-worker and management for employers were very professional and courteous.
Service Ambassador (Former Employee), Glenwood Springs, CO – October 30, 2014
Habitat For humanity is a great place to work, you learn something new everyday. The management would need a little adjustment; however, its overall a great work place. The people just working there are incredible, the attitudes are always positive. It is indeed a great workplace. There is not many benefits available to you.
DONATIONS ASSISTANT (Former Employee), South Carolina – October 29, 2014
Pros: provided breakfest
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work is pretty slow and hot. what I learn is how to have good communication skills. my manager was cool and laid back. some co-workers would work others wouldn't. the hardest part of the job was moving furniture out of customers houses. the most enjoyable part of the job was everybody always had a good attitude even on a rainy day.
A great place to work and volunteer for a great cause.
Volunteer, Julia's Cafe and Books (Current Employee), Charlotte, NC – October 19, 2014
Volunteering for Habitat for Humanity in Julia's Cafe & Books is a rewarding, fulfilling experience where the proceeds go to a great cause of building homes for those in need who in turn pay it back to build more homes for others.
Customer service and Sales (Former Employee), Oklahoma City, OK – October 13, 2014
Pros: good pay, great coworkers
Cons: management is very condescending and put others before employees
Management is not very confident to most procedures. There is diffidently an us and them dynamic between salary and hourly employees. Two set of rules for most employees. Great pay and coworkers are fun.
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 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.
