Volunteer (Former Employee), Fort Wayne, INSeptember 17, 2013
Pros: helping out those less fortunate.

A typical day includes opening early to organize food & products.
I learned to be thankful for blessings.
Management is beyond grateful.
Co-workers help one another.
The hardest part of the job is witnessing the amount of struggle in the world.
The most enjoyable part of the job is being able to lend a helping hand to those in less than fortunate positions.

Very challenging and a learning experience
Public Relations Representative (Former Employee), Roanoke, VirginiaJune 22, 2013
Pros: working for a good cause- usa hunger
Cons: not payed sufficiently
Input data for evaluating food banks in Southwest Virginia. I had over 300 accounts of individuals who had food banks in their prospective counties. I had to go and evaluate every 6 months to see if food banks were up to code for USDA standards. I had to talk with the people who were in charge of storing foods and go over evaluation process given by – more... the state of Virginia. My managers back at Second Harvest were awesome. A lady Becky was my supervisor. I learned so much from her and she didn't micro manage so made me want to work even harder. The most difficult part of the job was input data. I wasn't knowledgeable on how to do every aspect of the data input to the computer. It took some time to learn the system of collecting data from every food bank I evaluated. Took about a month to learn effectively. Again; the most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people all over the southwestern part of Virginia. To understand the level of poverty even in a modern world. – less

A day in the workplace
Volunteer (Former Employee), Orlando, FLMay 17, 2013
Pros: free lunch, community service hours, made friends
Cons: very hot, can get boring and repetitive
I walk in, along with other members to start working at an assembly line. We sort goods (food, toys, cleaning supplies, etc) into boxes to give to the needy. After a box is successfully filled, we seal it, store it, and then continue once again. I learned how to work in an assembly line and also how to work in a warehouse environment, as I also packed – more... boxes into trucks and such. I've made a lot of inseparable friends and the most enjoyable thing I've experienced was seeing a family receive a care package from us. The hardest was keeping up our work effort, but the good surely outweighed the bad. – less
