Missionary (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 22, 2016
The Gospel brings light to people's lives. This is not a job, this is a calling, but still, my mission was full of miracles, and amazing experiences. I got to know my Heavenly Father on a more personal basis.
Missionary (Former Employee) – Arcadia, CA – September 7, 2015
We worked on average 16 hours a day in a very structured and organized manner that helped us to exceed our abilities that we normally would have thought we had.
I loved the change that we brought into the lives of strangers and the friendships that were formed from the hard work and the opportunities that we had every day. The hardest part was how much we cared for people and tried. many would just walk away and not desire the change we desired for them.
This was the best hardest time of my life and has helped me to do better each and every day since then.
Processing Team Lead (Former Employee) – Wells Fargo, Minneapolis, MN – September 2, 2015
Multitasking training processors customer communication on a daily bases strong problem solving skills processing and closing mortgage loans from beginning to end. pipeline management working closely with underwriting to ensure a quick close for the customer. Strong communications skills with employees, managers and co-workers.
Being a financial clerk at LDS church is a very exciting place to work. I learned a lot from my Branch President and most of all I learned to become a leader. Although it was volunteered work, the experience that I obtained is incomparable.
Cashier (Former Employee) – Middletown, MD – August 18, 2014
I applied to LDS because I needed a job not because I wanted to work there. I worked very hard and did everything that I was supposed to. Things went on like, my manager bringing in a adult toy magazine for one of the parties she was having at her house over the weekend. All of the girls were looking at it on the front counter right in front of customers, I couldn't believe it! I left that job because they couldn't give me the hours I needed for work study at high school.
Missionary (Former Employee) – Cleveland, OH – June 19, 2014
Their was always another missionary that I worked with. About every 3 to 4 1/2 months I would work with someone different. Every 41/2 to 6 months I would move from one area or county to another. The job was unpaid but the service that we gave to others was priceless. Everyday consisted of waking up at 6 am to exercise for 45 minutes. After cleaning up and dressing into a conservative/ business suit, my companion and I would then start our personal studies of the scriptures at 7 am. At 8 am we then would study together and go through lesson plans for people that we had scheduled to teach that day. At 9 am we would leave our apartment for the rest of the day to go knock on doors in order to teach people at their homes, go to our scheduled appointments, provide community service to those in need, and even try to teach those we would walk by on the streets. At the end of the day, about 9 pm, we would come back to our apartment to review our success for the day and then plan our the next day by half hour increments. The job was very rewarding and enjoyable. If it where possible I would still be back in Cleveland doing it. My co-workers, at times, where difficult to deal with, just because of different personalities and work ethic, but I gained a long lasting friendship with all of them. The hardest part of the job would have to be trying to help those that didn't want help. However, the most enjoyable part of the job was seeing peoples lives change for the better and seeing them all gain a sense of new found happiness and belonging.
Missionary (Former Employee) – Klamath Falls, OR – June 9, 2014
I had to work on a daily basis with a cold contact service sharing my beliefs. I learned how to talk to people and how to get their trust. I had to work with several different co-workers (companions) that at times I did not agree with, but I was able to work past this and continue with our service. The hardest part was having to work with no direction given. I had to figure out what I needed to do to continue forward. I enjoyed talking to the people and getting close to them and building them up.
Collection Development Sr. Clerk Intern (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – January 28, 2014
Great place to work. A lot of volunteers eager to serve. Management is spot on with request and considerations. The people are easy to get along with and always have a positive demeanor. Easily able to speak your mind and have your voice heard.
x (Former Employee) – Salt Lake City, UT – October 4, 2013
Not sure why I ever wanted to work for TSCC.. It was always a career decision for me, and I did learn a lot in my field while working there, but I become a sale out emotionally and compromised my personal integrity and self worth in order to conform to the organization, it was not worth it.
Many co-workers felt cookie cutter to me, who seemed to make decisions only to fit in with the crowd. Group think ran rampant.
The hardest part of the Job: Putting up with those who adamantly supported their decisions based on receiving "inspiration" or "personal revelation" (as taught they should do in leadership training's). Which often conflicted with opposing views by other parties who received conflicting "inspiration" about the same project. This gave individuals an inflated sense of entitlement when making decisions.
Leaders and decision makers made business and "Secular" decisions based on the "promptings of the spirit"
Attending Monday devotionals were not mandatory, but being assigned to give the devotional once a year was.
People were generally very nice. But the pressure to conform was always there, and judgement and gossip was quite common.
As you can imagine many employees are very devout Mormons, many supporting family's with 10+ kids.
Prayers before and after most meetings and 1 on 1's
I felt bad that many people who truly loved working there got layed off, while I, who wanted out and was hoping for that severance package, had to stay.
I found another job shortly after.
misguided mission/propose, ironic compensation. (paying tithing on wages paid from tithing)
Accounting Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – June 1, 2013
LDS is a small company and we treat each other like family. Everyday is a busy day. The hardest part when doing billing for international account due to exchange rate. The most enjoyable part is cutting checks to vendors and List Owners.
