Poor management. No structure behind work.
Volunteer (Former Employee), Olympia, WANovember 14, 2013
Pros: level headed co-workers.
Cons: short breaks, no structure
This was not a good place to volunteer at. We would sweep constantly throughout the day. Leaving near nobody to help customers. Those who were left stayed behind the cash register at all times. The manager was rarely seen working. The co-workers were the only people who seemed active constantly. The hardest part of the job was re-organizing items weighing – more... over 100lbs almost everyday. – less

It was interesting because of the work.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee), Nanaimo, BCNovember 11, 2013
Pros: variety of responsibilities.
Cons: no janitor.
I would be the first person to get there. I would open up the office and start organizing my day.

The Executive Director would arrive and we would sit down and discuss what was on his calendar for the day.

I did not have any other co-workers in the office.

Keeping all the balls in the air.

The variety of the work was very challenging.

Non-Profit, geared toward community building for the betterment of society.
Intern (Former Employee), Santa Barbara, CANovember 6, 2013
Pros: people centered work, benefitting the community.
Cons: never enough volunteers.
There was never a typical day at work. It was always changing. Some days I did office work, other days I would help out members from the community to create a home for them. Some days I would help put on events, volunteer recruitment, or even talk to sponsors. I learned people skills, networking, managing, communication, and how to compromise. The managerial – more... style was fantastic, no one was treated less that anyone else. If a job had to be done, it wouldn't be passed down for someone else to get their hands dirty, it was a team effort. The hardest part of the job was seeing people from the communities suffering, losing their home to a disaster or from financial stress. The best part of the job was helping those same people and giving them a hand up rather than a hand out. – less

Volunteer Work (Current Employee), Franklin, VAOctober 20, 2013
Rite-Aid Pharmacy of Emporia, Virginia 23847, was an exciting place to work for my very first job. I was 16 years old when my summer experience, which turned into a full-time experience, began. This place was excellent on productivity. There wasn't a time that we weren't making this company better. I loved to work, not to "ride the clock" but because – more... we stayed active in making Rite-Aid such a high ranked company by supporting, well serviced customers. – less
