Productive and good life experience
Volunteer (Current Employee), Fort Collins, COMarch 17, 2014
Pros: teaches me important life lessons, friendly people, laid back, beneficial, lunch break
Cons: finding work, keeping busy, dusty/dirty environment, organization outside
A typical day volunteering at the Restore consists of of cleaning all of the furniture, decorations, and appliances being sold and donated. After I thoroughly clean the merchandise I then go through the isles and organize anything that is out of order and alphabetize CD's, tapes, and records and just make sure everything is in the right place. What – more... I've learned from volunteering here is that organization and presentation is key, if you keep the store and merchandise in order and in good condition it's easier to sell and easier for the customers to find. The co-workers and other individuals volunteering along with me are very helpful, I find that we don't so much work together we work more independently. The hardest part of this volunteering job is finding work to keep busy, the work that I am given or find to do gets done quickly and efficiently. Even though finding work to keep busy throughout my four hours of volunteering is hard, the most enjoyable part of volunteering here is the experience working with customers and learning how important it is to pay attention to detail and organization. The other enjoyable part of my job as a volunteer is knowing that I'm helping out the co-workers of the store and the people who are donating their goods. – less

A very humbling experience
Mortgage Processor (Current Employee), New Orleans, LAMarch 6, 2014
I am grateful for the opportunity to work at an organization that provided such a humbling experience. To work with those less fortunate is truly an amazing experience. I have learned so much about not only home building but also accounting skills that will provide much value. My immediate supervisor who had to leave due to medical issues was truly – more... an amazing teacher and mentor. There was never anything too challenging, and the most enjoyable part of my job was watching the joy in homeowners' faces as they closed on their homes. – less
