Volunteer Work (Former Employee) – Tampa, FL – June 10, 2017
Volunteering at Metropolitan Ministries throughout High School gave me a sense of self worth helping other less fortunate than I. Earning multiple community service hours taught me to give back to the community.
Able to help less fortunate families in time of need.
The Ministries is a wonderful place to work. Great culture, great coworkers, and a worthy engaging cause. If you would like to help alleviate the suffering of the homeless professionally this is a wonderful place to do so.

I always enjoy volunteering with them because they are so organized. I have been able to service in different parts of the organization and it never fails to teach me something new about them and how they help the community.
They are very friendly and resonable. Great work atmosphere and you even get invited to their non profit organization events. I loved my students teaching them. Managment was great they would give you anything you requested as long as it help with they organization or the childrens education.

I worked here over the summer in 2016 for my practicum in school and it was eye-opening to see all the people in my local community that need assistance. Metropolitan Ministries truly cares about people, going above and beyond their job requirements to make sure everyone knows that they matter. It was a privilege to work along side the small but devoted staff for the three months that I was there. The work is hard and their days are long, but they make a difference.
The pace of work since you go to work and until you leave is no-stop, you always know the time you go to work but do not know the time when you have to go home. I loved my job, I really like helping people. The high-ranking bosses do not care much if you kill yourself working, they are the only thing that matters is that the work is done if or if, what I discourage is that they promised me many things and the years went by and I did not see that they were They worked, between 55 and 65 hours a week. Worked hard and paid nothing, my salary was made for 40 hours a week and actually worked a lot more. I do not like to say bad things about my work, metropolitan taught me a lot and I will always thank you, but I felt that I was giving my life in that work and did not see the light at the end of the tunnel.
From what I saw when I was there Metro Min' needed more Manager's too help facilitate work flow and improve productivity. You are able to have a good flexible work schedule, You also get free lunch breaks.

The community is the main focus of most of the individuals at Metropolitan Ministries. The organization has some room to grow and get more organized. A lot of good work being done there, they will continue to grow and help the community.

It is better to be a volunteer with this organization, treatment of employees is awful. No respect for individuals, failed management, weak leadership, too many ego's to deal with, could be more effective if they would just get over themselves and focus on the work at hand. Poor HR department!! the inside motto: "do what I say but not what I do" DO NOT WORK THERE!!
I had a variety of task to fulfill including bagging, moving stock, and taking bags to cars. my coworkers were amazing and fun to talk to. management was nice and easy to understand directions. the hardest part was moving the stock because of the heavy lifting. the most enjoyable part of working there was talking to the customers while i was taking there bags to there vehicle.
If you are called to serve homeless families this is for you!
Associate Director, Outreach & Prevention Services (Current Employee) – Tampa Florida – May 7, 2015
Metropolitan Ministries is a great place to work. Working here takes a lot out of ones soul seeing desperation and homelessness everyday, but this job is not a job for those with a heart to serve. Being a non-profit salary's are low, but as we joke around... if you are here for the money this is not the place your you. Those here serve because they have a calling on their heart to serve vulnerable populations.

Fun yet serious environment that made you feel as if you made a different even if you weren't able to do much.the typical day begin with people greeting you and thanking you for volunteering there. then you were given assignment and tasked with completing them. sometime if you or others finished early you could help other people with their assignments.
