Manager (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – September 18, 2016
Wonderful experience, the culture needs some adjusting though. I loved my job and team. Loved my job there! The daily routines were nice and I loved being able to meet people who love their work. The culture of the mission needs some changes, but I know the staff is working to make Seattle's Union Gospel Mission worth working for.
Donor Relations Coordinator (Current Employee) – Seattle, WA – July 20, 2016
Typical day at work consisted of office like daily routines. Checking emails and answering phone calls. Through my time at UGM, I learned skills to help aid my in a future career in Social Work, Management, or Human Services.
Supervisor (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – May 4, 2016
What this organization does is wonderful for the homeless community and the people they are serving. Unfortunately, they are abusive to their employees. Low pay, not enough staff on duty for the number of people they work with. The executive team cares more about donors than the staff or the people they serve.
Serving people in need and a great health care plan
Customer Service (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 8, 2016
If you want to learn more about those who are under-resourced in our communities and be part of their lives or those who find themselves homeless, volunteer with the Mission or come invest yourself for a period of time. The homeless are not unlike ourselves.
Children's Ministry Coordinator (Former Employee) – Seattle, WA – August 8, 2013
It was a joy to work for an organization so committed to the poor and hurting. As the Children's Ministry Coordinator for 6 years it was a pleasure to create a safe space for children during out-of-school time. Equally vital as academic mentoring, enrichment activities and mentoring for the youth were the relationships I was able to develop with the families. I immensely enjoyed connecting with them and finding ways to provide resources and support for them as they (often with meager resources) worked to provide a great home for their children. It was a privilege to be a part of an organization with such a demonstrated and love and commitment to children.
