If you are called to serve homeless families this is for you!
Associate Director, Outreach & Prevention Services (Current Employee), Tampa FloridaMay 7, 2015
Pros: free lunch, ministry
Cons: hours, conpensation
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.

Very trying workplace; crowded space that doesn't promote to work in a quiet and productive environment. Only one co-ed bath for the whole building!
Case Manager (Former Employee), Tampa, FLDecember 13, 2014
Pros: free lunches
Cons: most everything else!
Paperwork & data entry was overwhelming and unrealistic.... Impossible to accomplish in 8 hrs.!!! Salary not commensurate with experience and amount of work. Most co-workers very compassionate, cooperative and professional. Housing department and housing manager is cruel and uncaring.

Loved working with my students
Teacher Assistant (Former Employee), Tampa, flOctober 22, 2014
Pros: lunches were free do to donations it was a non proffit organisatoion
Cons: no breaks and the insurance rate was to high
assisted teacher in classroom with daily activity. I loved this job I loved my students. What I didnt like was that i had put all my effort in this job. I was left in class by myself for months with no lead teacher and no one wanted to be in this classroom, but i took lead and i still go laid off. I felt like i was used, but i would do anything for my students and parents and they know it. Coworker were not teamplayers everyone was on they own. Management was unorganised.

I like this company
Data entry ACCTG (Former Employee), Tampa, FLJune 16, 2014
Pros: very flexiable, corporate with you for appointments
Cons: did not have a position to hire me
I started as a volunteer thru AARP after a year I was told by the manager of AARP my time was up to be in this position thru AARP, I started to go to school and other associates of Metro Min asked me to come back and work as a seasonal donor service data entry clerk so each year since I have been work 4,5 7 or 9 months each year as a part-time seasonal employee. However, since finishing school would appreciate a regular job. If unable to obtain a job this summer I am hoping Metro Min ask me back. I like working there. A company with so much volunteer help getting on regular is hard. They have always treated me well. I sort mail, run credit card report and balance them, updated donor information , updateunity, update data bases, ect.,

Unexpected fast pace day with employee call ins
Administrative Assistant Volunteer (Current Employee), Tampa, FLApril 11, 2014
On this particular work day I learned with good teamwork anything can be done successfully. We had an unexpected high volume of donors with limited phlebotomist do to call ins. My co-workers and I even thou stressed worked really well together without being far behind in productions and minimal unhappy donors. The hardest part of any job I think is not being the best team player you can be. The most enjoyable part of the job is when everyone takes part in teamwork, it's makes work less stressful and more productive.

Pros: volunteering
Cons: not been abvle to help
My excitement each day was same positive. It thought me how to be humble and how to cherish each day, working with my co-workers was always learning experience. The hardest part of my job was seeing people hurting financial, spiritual and emotionally, I enjoyed been able to bring a smile to their faces as well as mines because we never know when we are one pay check away from being in their shoes.
