Supervises Intake Worker (Current Employee) – Milwaukee, WI – July 6, 2014
I have learned much from working with the SVDP volunteers and other management staff. The most rewarding thing is seeing them help the families of Milwaukee. The most challenging is being productive and efficient while not having a structured day to day task list.
Electronics Sales Associate/ janitor (Former Employee) – Owensboro, KY – August 8, 2016
I always had something to do, wether its fixing electronics, cleaning bathrooms, or moving furntiure. I got to communicate with lot's good people and some bad. The manager is a great manager. She does her job right and is nice. But doesnt play around when its comes to work on being late, lazy, or foul language. Overall the job was a great experience for me learning different things giving me new experiences. With great people, great management and a great system going, no could ever complain about coming to work.

Store Associate (Former Employee) – Bellaire, TX – July 7, 2016
This is a great place to work at as I learned many things about the sales industry and at the same time was able to give back to the community. We were able to help the homeless and many families who lost their homes/household items due to natural disasters or life crisis. I was able to bring out my creative side at times and was able to explore new ideas to promote sales at the store. My co-workers were very friendly and understanding. Overall, it was a great place to work.
Training was provided
Short of staff and it was difficult on busy sales days
Food Prep (Current Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 8, 2016
I enjoy working here very much. It makes you feel good for giving back to the community where it needs it; it doesn't take a lot to do a lot for a cause. There are some paid positions but this was primarily volunteer work.
Low Income Family Aid Provider (Former Employee) – Fremont, CA – May 26, 2016
The members of the St. Vincent de Paul Society are some of the most altruistic people I have ever met in my life. They truly care for the well-being of others and in countless cases, put the priorities of those in need above their own. It has truly been a pleasure working alongside the members in providing aid to the less fortunate.
Volunteer (Former Employee) – Springfield, MA – May 4, 2016
Working her was very beneficial for me, it taught me how to work well with others. As well as how to properly organize. The managers and co-worker were all very nice and made me feel confident well at work. They helped me when ever I came across a problem at work, never made me feel uncomfortable to ask for help. The hardest part about my job was transportation. Over all I got more job experience, and a better understanding of working in a fast pace environment.

Days are busy due to the volume of work which is good. It is good to work for an organization whose mission is to help individuals and families in need. The staff I work with are interesting due to the philosophy of offering job opportunities to persons who have difficulty getting jobs due to their circumstances through our work rehabilitation program. In my position I have learned to oversee the operation of multiple stores, a truck fleet and dispatch office and open a distribution center.
